The amount of updates you have to download and install is crazy

    Not hating, but I just realized how many devices I had to download and install new updates to, if you're invested in the whole Apple ecosystem.

    All these updates are tethered to each other, I couldn't update my Apple Watch unless I updated my iPhone to 9.3. Then I had to update my iPad Pro, MacBook Pro, and Apple TV. The process is huge.

    The continuous update depicts Apple's continuous effort on improving their products?

    Doesn't that go for pretty much any system you have? If you have a couple of laptops with Windows and a desktop computer with Windows then at least once a month you have updates to install on all of them, not counting any other updates for other software that might be on them that.

    No that's not true. If you don't update windows, everything still works. Your iphone or ipod will still sync with old windows.

    This is the most 1st-world-problems thread I've ever seen. Honestly if you set everything to auto update you won't haven't to worry about most of this. Also, you don't need to update everything the moment it comes out. But yes, gosh darn it, I hate having security updates, updated features, and optimization.

    Number of updates, not amount of updates.

    A first world broadband connection helps.

    You can have things update while you sleep.

    Updates apart, the sort of budget one needs nowadays to 'upgrade' an Apple eco-system is quite high and getting steeper with each upgrade albeit Apple products do last a long time so one doesn't have to get whacked with the big-bang approach (unless one insists on having the latest and greatest i.e. upgrade all at the same time) ;-)

    Cheers !

    Actually it was "free" steam weekends that pushed me into getting a half-decent internet service. Spending a Saturday afternoon watching 8 Gigabytes trickle through ones connection takes some of the joy out of the experience.

    Believe me, I know. It's painful.

    if there weren't regular updates, you'd be complaining about that instead.
