My iphone 6 launched 2014 is no more supported beyond iOS 12. That means that I cannot download new apps like the Swiss COVID one. In the future, it means that I cannot access new services like ticketing, payments and so on, which might quickly become standard. As an example, I can quote Fairtiq, which is an app which allows to travel in whole Switzerland with train, bus, boat… by just activating it on departure and arrival and getting charged afterwards. As such services evolve very quickly, I expect that such services soon do not work any more on older phones.
Apple supported iphone 6 for 6 years. I was told that it is worse with Android versions and phones (up to 3 years). My question is how long a Fairphone 3 will be supported for new iOS and software incl. new apps. It is pointless to have an hardware which lasts 10 years it cannot be updated after 3 years.
Do anybody have perspective about this isuue?
