Subject: BS: anyone got an old iPhone ?

a snippet on the BBC TV News today was saying that Apple have had to admit that their phones s l o w d o w n   a s   t h e y a g e

deliberately, by design.

to preserve battery life (in the face of diminishing capacity) is quoted as the reason, but do we fully believe them?

And I noticed that second hand shops have far more iPads than Samsung. I thought it was because Apple evangelists are first adopters, whereas Samsungers buy to keep. Do I read that right?

My wife has two old iPads and an iPhone 4 and it always puzzled me that they run so slow. The Safari browser, which is naturally slow, is glacially so on the oldest iPad. I used to put it down to the software - including iOS - getting bigger and needing more memory. But this perfectly explains it.

I'm not against them doing it, but they should have been open about it. Or made it an option - speed vs time between charges.

I have old Samsung and Nexus tablets on which I can run old or limited versions of Android and they go as quickly as they did when new. You can't do anything with an old iPad.

I've noticed also that some iOS apps are not updatable on her versions of iOS (none of my wife's devices can be updated beyong iOS 9) despite the changes not requiring extra hardware. I'm suspicious that Apple encourages them to do that.

Surely they were designed to slow down to encourage the purchase of new items. Is it possible to replace the OS on older phones to make them more useable?

I read somewhere that if you replace the battery they speed up again.

I notice that my iPhone 6S is regarded as an "older iPhone!"

God Bless Unregulated Capitalism.

And God Save The Techno-Addicted.

Planned obsolescence is the quintessence of the Microsoft business model.

I have an iPhone 5. It works faster than I do.

Micro$soft do this on PCs by updating security.

Apple do it by original design.

The techno world are not convinced the Apple wheeze is all battery related. And they can hide behind all those apps (aka snoopware) you have added, running in the background.

Personally I think that is a Microsoft win there. We (I) buy into security. Do we buy into planned obsolescence?
