Surprising Long-Term iOS 6 Support

Just wanted to share my surprise that twice now, when an Internet-backed service in iOS 6 failed, I filed a developer bug report, to which Apple's engineers actually responded and resolved the issues. Once in April of 2016, the Weather app stopped providing data, and in October of 2017 the Maps app stopped providing vector data. Both were subsequently resolved with backend changes on Apple's part. I'm still shocked that Apple, of all companies, actually provided support for software that has been unsupported for almost 5 years.
