Why is it so complicated and hard to get updates on Android devices finally explained? HTC tells it all. Warning, this is ugly.
Now, compare this to iOS updates. Apple’s iOS 7 is already running on nearly 80% of all iOS devices (iPhones, iPod touches, iPads) only after three months on the market. Still, according to some people, this is part of a big plan designed by Apple to force people to upgrade to newer devices because iOS 7 on older devices sucks. So you see, this is a damned if they do, damned if they don’t scenario for Apple.
The question becomes: where is the real planned obsolescence, from Apple who provides free upgrades to iOS for more than three years old devices or from Android where cheap devices cannot be upgraded unless you buy a new one?
