Why aren't smartphones updated regularly like PCs and Macs are?
becker 1 year ago
PC and Mac users can expect to receive regular updates to their OS, but that certainly isn't the case with smartphones. In my experience, it is not uncommon for smartphones to NEVER be updated. I think it is the greatest drawback to Android smartphones, which I otherwise like. Out of curiosity I asked some of my coworkers with Android smartphones which version they were running, and a number of them were two and three generations behind. What is the reason for this? It would seem to be in everyone's benefit to have current generation software on all smartphones.
