Let me preface this question with a disclaimer. I am not anti-Apple. Though my senior citizen status would preclude me from saying I am a "fanboy" I am and have always been pro Apple products---ever since my original 128K Mac! That said, I am interested in getting your opinion on what I see as a persistent problem: (maybe?) planned obsolence. I buy a new iphone or iPad, then install all updates as they are rolled out. My device then runs slower and slower. Finally, I realize I have to buy a new device to speed things up. I really feel bad when I look around the house and see my old iPad1, iPad2, and iPad 3 just gathering dust as I use my twelve inch iPad Pro!
