It’s always a complex issue when you have an older phone. When it lags, you have a strong urge to throw it against the wall. Conversations between your friends are the worse as they go along the lines of the latest gadgets and features which will make you feel left out. It sometimes stinks, doesn’t it?
iPhone 4 users might want to sit down because this piece of news is just plain disappointing. Apple’s recent announcement on iOS 8 proves Coursera’s latest sentiment about how “mobile devices are at the forefront of the digital industry.” Unsurprisingly enough, the latest software iOS8 offers a lot of cool and incredible features. One example is “HomeKit”, a brand new software that allows people to control household objects just by using their mobile device.
But, here’s the downfall.
It appears that iPhone 4 users won’t get to experience the upgrade. Instead, they have to make do with iOS 7.
And iPhone 4S users, I wouldn’t be relieved if I were you. Given iOS 7’s track record (it performs poorly on older iPhones), there’s bound to get really laggy running iOS 8 on a 4S.
When Apple CEO Tim Cook was giving a presentation at WWDC (The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference), he revealed that there are 98 percent of Apple users who are on iOS 7, while only 9 percent of Android users are using the latest KitKat OS release. He even further talked about how most viruses and malwares are in Android apps, not iOS apps. As an Android user myself, it certainly made me horrified just reading this.
Founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, Apple Inc. is an multinational corporation that specialises in computers, electronics, and software products. It is best known for its Mac computers, iPhone smartphones, and iPad tablet computers.
