i don't think they forced ios7 on people to make them upgrade, it was to keep fragmentation out of the picture...

 

ios7 being crappy on older phones is just a bonus to them, by making people buy a new phone! 

 

almost like adding just a couple things to each new phone to keep people buying them every 6 months or so.  no one seriously believes that apple couldn't have come out with a bigger screen for the 5s, do they?   no way, people will buy the 5s, then buy the 6 when it comes out it a few months because it's relatively the same phone, but with a bigger screen.

News now in... new operating system is harder on older hardware than old version of the same operating system.

We are surprised why?

 

 

Except the hardware isn't that old...

 

The performance gained by going from A4 to A5 and from A6 to A7 chips has been incremental at best imho.

Well if its true or not I am buying a Nexus 5 when it comes out because iOS7 has ballsed up my iPhone4 royally. Lots of small niggly thing slike keyboard lag and not being unable to unlock the phone with my pin (just hangs after entering the pin)

 

I have reached t he point of frustration with this phone that its time for a change...a change to Android :)

 

Every release of Android since I bought my Nexus 4 has made my battery life shorter and the OS slower... shocking isn't it!

The grass is not greener on the other side.

The hardware is 3 generations old, and saying the speed difference is incremental is like saying Haswell chips are only fractionally quicker and less battery intensive than Westmere/Nehalem chips.  It just isn't true - my iPhone 4 is over 3 and a half years old now, that's an absolute age in mobile processor technology.

 

OS's continue to get heavier over time, with a couple of small exceptions.  It's reality deal with it.

I think iPhones are busted by default, no need to overdo it, Apple. ;)

The battery was starting to run down much faster

didn't Windows 8.1 'upgrade' for surface and laptop did the same?

but at least Microsoft actually acknowledge the problem and issuing the patches.

 

So, please Microsoft, please stop copying the evil Apple way.
