Preface: I am not arguing in favor of either side of this debate. It seems that, nowadays, having a nuanced discussion in the iOS forum is impossible. So many of the threads start off with some topic about something else and inevitably change to how Apple's Planned Obselesence is slowing down some devices. It never ends. And I believe that this back and forth is just making every thread become less of a discussion and more of a chore. I know that my own experience, for example, is to never go into any thread containing anything relating to performance at all without the foreknowledge that it's going to be an argument about Planned Obselesence. I don't even know what the fix for it is, or if there is one.
