Re: Aged computers?
Clearly it’s not against the law as you claimed to leave holes in out of warranty and support life devices’ software.
I do have concerns, but not complaints precisely:
I bought an iPhone 6 maybe a couple of years ago, from a secondhand dealer, and I was able to install them current iOS as I expected. But there were a lot of older, some probably unsupported phones in the store. Some of these probably have idiotic bugs such as bricking or being rooted if someone sends you a type of malicious SMS, and you’re stuck with that behaviour. Removing these from service would seem unfair, but they’re dangerous to have around.
I bought an iPhone 7 for iOS 13 I think - in the same way - because the iOS doesn’t run on the 6 and so I assumed that support was ended. But clearly it isn’t ended since there are ongoing updates for iOS 12, so I upgraded too soon. Anyone want to buy an iPhone 6... maybe I’ll ask the family.
So it seems to be incorrect that this phone is “unsupported” as the story says, but I haven’t seen official information about it?
Oh, and I had to cut the camera hole in my phone case to be larger. I have a set of pictures with one corner blacked out..,
