Is it me or are immediate OS updates starting to matter a bit less these days? On Android... it's gotten to a point where I honestly don't know where else they can take it. They'll tinker on additional tweaks, improvements, some new features, sure but how dramatic of an improvement could it be? I mean, I guess I stand to be surprised by those who will keep innovating, but at this point, looking toward 2013, the OS has gotten so good and stable that I don't think it's that big of a deal anymore to not get the absolute latest update on day one. Some might argue this is already true, that OS updates doesn't suddenly render your current OS obsolete in anyway. It's refreshing that Google believes they're only "one third" done with Android. What else can they give us that we must have right away, though, I wonder? On iOS... it's great updates come on day one, but they tend to be missing the main feature of the updated OS which makes the update really not as big of a deal as some might think. These updates come once a year anyway. And depending on your device, the update can actually cripple battery life and/or add lag. Recently, users had to sacrifice Google Maps. Do we place too much value on updates? Is it a misguided necessity? I'm not sure. But I'm starting to feel the Nexus line is becoming somewhat less necessary, while the allure of alternative phones, like say the Note II, is starting to look more and more attractive and acceptable. Part of me also wants to wait for the Galaxy S4. These are two devices that I know won't get the latest updated OS right away... Thoughts?
