Wow some people can find a negative in everything. At some point whether 1 year or 100 years, you have to cut off older devices from getting the newest OS versions. Otherwise you make more work for yourself supporting devices that are a lower and lower percentage of the installed base, and can't add features that may require greater CPU, RAM or flash resources than those devices have.

This allows owners of those devices to keep up on security patches and continue using them safely, without worrying that installing an update to keep their phone safe will make it sluggish or force them to delete apps/photos to make room for a larger OS image.
