☕ David Antoine #iOS ! Actually I don't care... I still use an "old" Symbian OS phone. Which probably makes me a dinosaur in the smartphone landscape...

Paul Webb Sigh...tech writers on sites like Forbes have a bad habit of making things doom and gloom. "Apple is no longer guaranteeing support throughout a full iOS generation. It can in fact be cut off at any time..." Um, duh. Any company can cut off support for anything at any time, just look at Google's software. Notably, the author doesn't mention AFS (Apple File System). It's not designed for 32-bit phones. APS is replacing HFS+. The blatant fear-mongering is annoying and shows off the laziness of said author.
☕ David Antoine True that ! I forgot about AFS also. I suppose Apple could still push specific security updates for those phones, like a 10.3.1.x branch...
