How Apple encourages users to buy new generation iPhone
Have you noticed that your iPhone starts to run slower after two or three years after the purchase? Why such a technically advanced gadget suddenly becomes moody and spends all his memory to ensure that perform basic tasks or to download applications?
The reason for this in the software Apple, which plays a vital role in maintaining high sales.
Apple updates the operating system for mobile devices, and each year it gets a push to the top of the next sales cycle. For several years, every autumn users begin to download the latest and best version of iOS. And, of course, it is best to this latest version runs on the latest generation of devices, which go on sale around the same time. A few months before the premiere application developers seeking to improve their programs so that they corresponded to the level of the new OS.
This, of course, affect the users apples. Those who bought their iPhone two or more years ago, probably more than once tempted to smash it against the wall, after upgrading to the latest version of iOS – it becomes slow and moody. For many, the best solution in this situation is to buy a new iPhone.
It is unlikely that Apple deliberately slows down the older devices (the company refused to even comment on such an assumption correspondent Huffington Post). The company is developing a new operating system that require more power, resulting in old iPhone can not work with it effectively.
This system worked quite well. The average iPhone owner from the United States changes its new smartphone about once every two years (not by chance that a 2-year contracts with mobile operators, without which the first week sales of the new iPhone can not buy). But the latest firmware, iOS 8, became a kind of failure of Apple.
Users upgrading to the new version, have become massively complain about problems with their iPhone. Apple quickly released a patch to fix the shortcomings of the new system, but the bad feeling from this event left. The requirement for an additional five gigabytes for the new OS also was an unpleasant surprise for users of previous models apple smartphone. As a result, many iPhone owners have refused to load the new iOS. The transition to iOS 7 was much more unanimous.
Even last year, Catherine Rampell wrote in the New York Times, that its iPhone 4 has become “much slower” after the 5S and 5C. This is also noticed an economics professor at Harvard Mullainatan Sandy, who noted that each time after the release of the new iPhone, Google is growing in the number of requests according to “iPhone Slow”. Twitter now again filled with people who complain about the slow down after the smartphone iPhone download iOS8.
So, if you want longer use your old iPhone – just do not go to the new operating system. Thus, for example, decided to act Christopher Mims, a former editor of the science and technology in Quartz, and now – columnist Wall Street Journal.
“Except for small, regular updates, do not update the software on your hardware. Especially if it now performs its tasks.”
Mims uses the iPhone 5S is not going to download iOS 8. In his microblog on Twitter, he advised to engage in upgrading the system only when stop working mission-critical applications.http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2015/02/27/how-apple-encourages-users-to-buy-new-generation-iphone/https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/sz_tim-cook-facebook.jpg?fit=700%2C350https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/sz_tim-cook-facebook.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWSApple,iPhoneHave you noticed that your iPhone starts to run slower after two or three years after the purchase?
