    Hi guys,

    I own an iPhone 5s, an iPhone 4, an iPhone 4s and an iPod Touch (3g and 4g).

    I have come to a conclusion that the longer I own the device the slower it gets and the more crashes I get. Is there a way to fix this? I even factory reset everything and it still happens. There is a noticeable difference from when I first got the phone and till now like everything is super laggy.

    Am I the only one to experience this?

    New software runs slower on older hardware. This shouldn't be surprising.

    Yes. My iPhone 3G is running iOS8 significantly faster than my wife's 5S.

    My 1998 Jeep Cherokee does the same thing. I fill it up with gas, change the oil, replace the air filter and battery; I even got new windshield wipers on it, but it still doesn't run like it did when I bought it in 2000. What's the deal?

    Have tried to restore the phone and setup as new? And see if it makes any difference.

    As with age, the older you get the more things begin to slow down.

    Hey guys, I have an 8 yr old Laptop that used to have XP on it. I put Windows 8 on it now and its kind of slow.
    Is this normal?

    Phone are made of organic matter?

    ----------

    Since everyone is really smart in here, can you answer what the rate of processor depreciation is per year for an unused and averagely used iPhone is (one that hasn't had any firmware updates).
