Europe imposes stricter requirements on manufacturers Android smartphones

Manufacturers of Android smartphones must in the future to five years of updates for their phones. This is stated in a proposal from the European Commission (EC).

Users must be able to receive system software updates for at least three years. In addition, manufacturers must release at least five years’ worth of phone security patches.

Many manufacturers have already adjusted their update policy, although the five-year support is not really commonplace yet.

In practice, mainly expensive smartphones are regularly updated. Cheaper models don’t.

EC also wants to make it easier to repair telephones. Manufacturers are therefore obliged to keep spare parts for a certain model of smartphone in stock for up to five years.
