Scratching my head
This linking the hardware and the software does puzzle me a bit. I've got one of the original Sailfish phones from 2013 and it still receives the patches.
To my mind, this is a problem with the way that phones and their operating systems are put together in the first place. It seems to be a problem that could easily be designed out of the process. I still don't really see the justification in stopping updates going to older phones.
Can someone educate me as to why phones go out of support?
