With the new 1.1.2 firmware many users reported that their iPhones ‘felt a little snappier’. This could be in part due to the fact that with the 1.1.2 firmware the processor is actually being used at a slightly higher speed. iPhones ship with a 624mz processor, but originally Apple capped them at 400mz for typical use to help enhance the battery life. With 1.1.2 that’s been bumped up to 412.
While this may not be major news right now, it does hint that Apple may have more features planned which require the additional horsepower. Another side of the coin may be that as Apple continues to refine the iPhone code base and make various functions more efficient they can ramp up the processor without adversely affecting battery life. Whatever the cause we can hopefully look forward to seeing our iPhones get faster and faster with each coming software update.
