    Nope, but they still have custom ROMs, I still have Original S as my third phone, and with few click 's have ROOTed it and put latest Android. Simpke as that, yeah it has some limitations, but after all I have it. Can you do that with IPhone 4, nope.

    The smartphone market basically restarted in 2007. Of course the mobile market is going to race quickly and have a LOT of change. In about five years or so, the huge performance gains will be a thing of the past and we'll likely get longer support cycles. But that won't help your underpowered iPhone 4.

    Clearly you don't even want to spend 800$ on a phone every FOUR years. >_>;

    he/she is whining/sniveling that Yosemite's Continuity won't work with his/her iPhone 4 because the iPhone 4's hardware doesn't support iOS 8.

    FYI I am a he - I understand your confusion though, once you converse with females you will be able to differentiate between the two easier; all comes with experience, my fri.

    The thing is, this thread serves absolutely no purpose. If you feel cheated because Apple dropped support for iPhone 4 after 4 years, take a minute and research how fast other manufacturers drop support for their flagship phones.

    Some are even released with already outdated OS.

    This thread has misleading title. Hint, hint:

    Of course it serves a purpose. It's another case of Apple bottlenecking products essentially forcing their consumers to re-buy the latest (and most expensive) of everything.

    It's no different from being a drug addict - pay the money to get the high first of all then there is the come down and you shell out even more money to recieve the high again, it's a vicious spiral. Now I am £2000 deep in this Apple mess my options are have devices that simply do not work together or pay more money to acquire a host of features I expected to recieve anyway.

    My advice to anyone even debating getting into the Apple hocus pocus is simply don't...you will find yourself keep having to shell out hard earnt paper. Not this puppy, I'm gonna cut the rope sooner or later if these Apple stunts carry on.

    It was kinda hard to tell with all of your whining.

    You claim that "Apple [is] bottlenecking products essentially forcing their consumers to re-buy the latest (and most expensive) of everything. As both a manufacturer and software designer, there comes a time when older hardware won't support newer software. Do you realize the same issue happens to Android and Windows Phone users?

    Does your TV get new features and updates 3 years later? What about your fridge? When was your last microwave software update that enabled new cooking presets?

    Apple would be well within their rights to stop updating the previous phone as soon as a new one came out. The fact that they still update them for YEARS down the line is pretty awesome. Just go ask an Android fan who has a phone that came out 18 months ago and won't be getting anymore updates. You can get a 5C *free* on contract, go get one and enjoy the new features and many more updates to come. Don't keep the phone from 2010 then complain about it.

    If you can afford an Audi R8 you can afford a 5C free on contract :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I would be pissed if Audi is going to make a feature in the new R8 that lets me connect my iPhone with the car radio and the radio in the 2014 edition cant support it .. **** Audi! Does Audi expect me to buy every year a new car to get the features I thought I would get anyway in a expensive car? I'm now 200.000 in this Audi mess and my car sux now as well as my garage which was fine for my porsche but now without this feature I could as well destroy it and let my car rust away.

    Considering the original Galaxy S is a single core Cortex A8 device with a GPU from 2007 and only 394MB of RAM that didn't get an official update to 4.0 because of not enough RAM, I'm going to call ******** on it having only "some" limitations. I know what those ROM's are like, I've played around with custom ROM's over the years as my third phone is an HTC Hero (another old favorite of the custom ROM scene). Thus I know that those ROM's are only 4.X in name as they've had to strip out just about all the new features simply because the device doesn't have the memory and would lag like crazy.

    Those ROM's are literally like the custom Windows 7 setups people have made to run it on machines from the late 90's. If you've never seen any of those setups in action, they look like Windows 98, are missing so many API's that half the programs crash on launch and have glaring omissions like not being able to use printers (because the printer services have been removed or disabled).

    Stop complaining that your obsolete piece of hardware does not work with an operating system that is 4 years newer than the hardware that is inside it.

    1. The genii sit behind the bar and help with problems. You didn't speak to a genius, you spoke to a salesperson. Apple calls them specialists (but they are sales people)

    2. Did you say you had an iPhone 4 or an iPhone?

    3. Always do some research yourself.

    4. No company is required to support their products for ever or even add new features to a product already sold. The iPhone 4 dates from 2010. It did get new features and three major operating system updates.

    5. If you've had the rMBP less than 14 days, return it for a refund. No questions asked!

    6. This thread does serve no purpose. Apple isn't forcing you to buy anything. I have an old iPhone 3G here. I booted it up last week, and stuck a sim card in it.

    It still works. It makes calls, surfs the net, connects to twitter, etc, etc. It doesn't have TouchID though, and won't go past iOS 4.

    It's just, that the hardware can no longer support the latest OS. So the feature set is now fixed. That's it. It still can do more than it did when I first bought it in 2008!

    Hardly crafty! The supported devices for each feature are always listed as soon as the new OS is announced. It's up to you to do your research before purchasing a product. You can't expect a 4 year old bit of hardware to run every new feature that comes out in 2014.

    ----------

    Slight exaggeration, just because a phone doesn't support every new feature doesn't mean its been 'killed off'.

    Yes, this is all a conspiracy to screw you over personally.

    if Apple allows iOS 8 on the iPhone 4 and it’s slow, laggy and buggy, you’d be ok with that right? The iPhone 4 is only FIVE generations old. Maybe it’s time for a new phone. SMH.

    ----------

    You’re welcome to use the SMS/phone call syncing on your Windows computer or you Android phone. Good luck with that.

    At some point you need to buy new(er) devices to take advantage of the latest software/features.

    I'm sorry but you bought a $1000+ laptop because the nice lady in the Apple Store told you it was the best thing to buy and you didn't think any further research was necessary? Do you often find yourself buying a lot of things you don't need or want?

    ----------

    Apple even took a bit of a risk by offering iOS 7 to iPhone 4 users seeing as it pretty much turns your phone into a brick.

    Funny thing is.. People still use iPhone 4? I mean, I could understand my mom using it but a guy who buys a new rmbp... One would think that a guy would understand such a basic stuff as obsolete. Lol, iPhone 4. Even he 4S is pretty dead with ios8. When you upgraded to ios7 didn't it seem like it was already slow and since it didn't support a lot of new features maybe it was at its last breath?...

    I'm going to be more blunt with OP this time: what exactly are you complaining about here? You've stated you purchased the rMBP as it was the "best laptop around," and you appear to be unhappy with that decision (since it was the premise for purchase, was it not?) for some reason or another. Was this a hardware or software (or both) premise? One feature breaking the entire package? You've got bizarre priorities for what constitutes ideal features in a laptop (apparently features you've never previously had experience with, clearly).

    Take your excuses elsewhere [since the information you were not aware of was more than available in multiple sources, here & elsewhere (see above in green, since obviously nothing online could've told you?)], and quit trolling, unless you have something substantial to contribute other than a philosophical standpoint on how you feel a company should operate it's interoperability over hardware generations.

    This is getting beyond petty.

    When I say go in a pick up the rMBP I mean feel the weight of the machine as it is SO heavy. I THOUGHT because it was expensive (and because of all the hype around the rMBP on these forums) that it was the best. I now don't believe it is and think it is extremely weighty for no reason.

    That Audi R8 V10 in your sig gave me a good laughs.

    You probably can't even drive it. :D

    No offense but I seriously believe so. Leave those car for people who are worth it.

    I still cannot believe you call the retina macbook hefty. Thats ridiculous.

    I have the older macbook and thats no problem to lift and I am not that of big guy like you always say and that old one has more weight to it. And thats like no problem. My girl is really not a hefty girl and even she doesnt complain about the weight of it?

    If you complain about the weight of Macbook, man the wife is sure as hell not happy with you doing anything
