Older phones: If Apple makes more money off Apps than Phones then Apple should have a broader range of phones available. Keep up speed and security Apple. There are other countries where people use older versions of apps that are more optimized for older phones because their markets sell cheaper or older phones. It’s a whole business opportunity.

  2. Bryan you saying don’t update an older iPhone with an older iOS version but there are numerous security flaws/holes in the OS are being found while updating the current latest OS.

  7. Ios apps are for phones and tablets..they are messing up the whole computer experience. All they do is continuing creating OS's that don't reflect to the Mac experience. Like music production apps. Just gonna keep all my old stuff. They lock the OS on IOS and now screwing up the Mac OS.
