    Depends on the apps you use. You can stay in an older iOS if none of your apps require a newer one.

    It could also be depended where you live,
    Here in Holland, the banks have altered the rules concerning digital theft, if you bank account gets hacked and emptied, and you did not run the latest update, you run the risk of not getting a reimbursement of your lost cash.

    while I have not heard of a case involving this scenario, it might be prudent to read the rules if you use internet banking :)

    Remember you are hurting developers and the entire Apple ecosystem by resisting conformity. Large groups of people using older iOS's will force developers to spread too thin and not be as fast in focusing on the latest iOS./s.
