In the market for a second-hand phone? Check it's still supported by the vendor – almost a third sold are not

I suspect that, if certain governments have their way and force Apple to open iPhones to all and sundry, they will go the same way. As it is, old iPhones (back to 6S at least) get regular patches but I see Apple being forced to allow other app stores access - and then get complaints from users when their phones don't behave as intended.

Apple is far from perfect but, insofar as privacy and security goes, their stuff is probably as good a the average punter will get. Expensive kit to buy at the start but it the overall cost of ownership (if you don't always chase the latest) is probably good value.
