Not picking a side. But it's kinda funny when you think about it:
* With an Apple device, you get regular updates to iOS, but your phone will continually become slower (planned obsolescence)
I'm not sure I follow how making software more powerful and "do more stuff" is equated with planned obsolescence? The bells and whistles take more to run and they are using the newer hardware to bring a better experience with more features. But for those that believe in "planned obsolescence" you can always not update.
