I currently have an iPhone 7 still running iOS 10.3.3
I am scared to update because of all the stories where Apple slows down older devices on purpose to make you angry and eats battery like crazy for no reason but to annoy you. So you are forced to buy the latest model. lol
However, I am currently missing out on locking 7-Eleven prices (7-11 app doesn't support iOS 10) and probably lost $50+ in savings that I would have gotten if I faked my location. I will probably lose more if I do nothing about it. I don't have an Android device.
I do not want to update because currently the phone is in a perfect condition:
- No random app crashes
- No random restarts
- No slowdowns
- Every app launches instantly
- Can still watch 4+ hours of YouTube on a 4 year old phone
- Battery loses 10% to 15% per day if I only use it for casual messaging and a few calls
I would still stay on iOS 10 because there hasn't been a single reason to update yet but 7-11 discounts might be the one and only which tips the iceberg.
Anyone have somewhat similar experiences to share?
