They always release new updates and then the old units will no longer be updated aside from the latest models. Of course, they doing it so customers will upgrade to new models.

This is a very good news to all users of Apple products. 

This would help old iPhone users to still enjoy their old devices even when new ones comes out.

They always promise this, but how can we believe them when they sabotage their old phones so People spend hundreds on a new device...I would never buy anything from a company that admits doing this kind of thing...

They kill older devices, they keep saying they would change that and that would provide patches, but honestly i dont trust a word they say...they are in the money business.

Many of the older Apple phones won't be able to accept this new update. Apple is working hard to try and phase out the older device. I only had my iPhone 6 plus for a few years and decided to upgrade and change out the phone. I knew that the iPhone 6 plus had an issue with the screen chip sensor inside the motherboard. When Apple first made this device they did a terrible design on the motherboard and refused to admit it was their fault.

Apple has finally given people a chance to repair their device for $150. This basically will change out the existing motherboard for a new one. I still think that they had a problem with the product that they should have swapped out the motherboard for free instead of asking people to pay for this.

With one of the updates, some of the new model iPhones 6 had many problems and the phones were bricked. Apple didn't announce this to people before they installed the update. Any iPhone user should wait for several weeks or longer before installing the new updates to their phones. It is best to find out how many people have issues with the update before bricking your phone or having a problem with it.

For me, I think that this is one of the best things that these people will do as long as competing with the rest of the other phone manufacturers are concerned. If you check around, you will see that the world is now being dominated by the makers of Android phones. I mean that even with the high price of other type of phones such as iPhone, Android mobile phones are still at the top when it comes to purchases.

So, for the developers of iPhone thinking of bringing a nice app that will assist iPhone users on the way to check out their batteries, you get to see that it will help them to make future plans when they notice that their batteries are going down. IPhone accessories are not always that easy to access, so this is an awesome move by the makers of iPhones.

Apple is literally the best company when it comes to producing state of the smartphone devices. When Android smartphone was invented, we all thought that it's going to be the very last straw in the development of smartphone with the best features in the world but we were paused to get a huge surprise when the technology behind iPhone devices were invented and now we have an impossible achievement with the things that we can do with smartphone.


On thing that is very common with Apple company is that they are well into upgrading their products software with a better version every year without any compromise. There have been some rumors about the company being behind the slowing down of the old version of Apple products when new updates comes out. If the company is behind this, it's very wrong.
