No word on the possible impact on Apple?

As they also use QC and Broadcomm components in their iDevices.

Perhaps those are suffuciently different as not to be affected by this.

I hope that Google get their act together and make EVERYONE using the Android brand provide security updates for at least 3 years. At the moment it is pot-luck and in that game, the odds are against you getting more than 1 year of updates.

Android devices are indeed a lot cheaper than those from Apple but not updating them is IMHO a cheapskate move.
