    Class Action Lawsuit Accuses Apple of Crippling iPhone 4s With iOS 9 Update - Mac Rumors

    just read this, This is true as new software updates are mandatory and they make the old devices feel sluggish. A clever way of phasing out the devices and "making users ditch their device & buy new", Am happy to hear even the budget Lumia 525s are happy with the W10 upgrade as reported by some users on this forum. What you think?

    At the end of the article, it said that this isn't the first time Apple has been hit with a lawsuit; when iPhone 3G couldn't get iOS 4. I personally don't see anywhere that states Apple intentionally provided this update to force older 4s owners to upgrade, so this will probably get thrown out again.

    Also, if people were a little more wise, that should have done an internet search of other 4s owners and find out of this most recent update would drastically affect performance before they allowed that upgrade to download. So owners should a measure of responsibility realizing a 4 year old phone might not always continue to be supported after a while.

    I agree with you, but why Apple offer it to 4 year old devices anyway? They sure know there update will make the old devices lag, they can just leave them there? I think they intentionally do that. Thinking of the majority who use apple, they would not bother doing research but crave to install the latest update and brag blindly about features other platforms had ages ago...

    This is something I have been saying for a very long time...... Smartphones make people dumber & lazier; especially here in America. People can no longer think for themselves but let their phones control them.

    Well, FWIW I've seen anecdotal evidence of working 4S's on 9.x. My mother's 4S seems OK on 9.2. She complained about a bit of typing lag at times, but it works.

    Apple currently has the title of the longest supported smartphone with the 4S coming out in 2011.

    Androids from then are long forgotten, Windows Phones then ran version 7, and we know what happened there.

    Probably to achieve multiple ends. Maybe it is a conspiracy, but it's also for user security, image, continuing to support is a solid decision. We're probably starting to see the opposite problem, so much that it becomes a problem, of what Android suffers from.
