John Olinda Part of the problem is that in many parts of the world old phones are still being sold. My iPhone 4, Nexus One, and Motorola Droid are all vulnerable to things that have been patched in later devices and versions of their operating systems. Apple's advantage is that they control the hardware and thus the drivers. I just don't see a way to force hardware manufacturers to release updates unless you take Android closed-source and just tell hardware manufacturers what they have to do in order to run it. But I imagine most would just use older open-source versions of the OS and fork like Amazon did.
