My phone updates have been driven in the past by getting whatever is the current model when my two-year contract runs out, but now that those are ending, I may just hang on to my current model (an iPhone 6 Plus) for a while longer, since it still works fine a year and a half after ordering it.
TFA is almost completely content-free. 4000 characters of wasted space. It looks like some financial writer was looking for clicks and is spouting the "Apple is doomed" meme again.

I hate that goddamn phrase. When the inevitable time comes when suddenly the old system *does* break, it's no longer under any support, nobody's left at the company who knows how it works, there's no budget for a modern replacement, and it has to be fixed in four hours or the company goes bankrupt. Been there, done that, ate the T-shirt after hours of working with no break for food.
People who say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" are the same idiots who brag about uptime.
Pro tip: *every* system is broken. The trick is being able to repair or work around the broken parts without disruption, not to just seal it behind a wall and rediscover it years later when trying to track down what's still pinging.
HA-ha-ha! Promote that man.
Frankly, I would consider a system that worked like that a big improvement.

Sure, but if every project gets replaced with something brand-new every couple of years as management chases tech trends, what's the value of institutional memory anymore?

Well not any more it doesn't.
Well, Ron Paul *is* crazy, so that's not the best example.
Well, OS X does include a modern version of the Newton's old handwriting engine; if they can get that ported to iOS, *then* it'll be the return of the Newton.
