Comparisons between smartphones from Samsung y Apple they tend to leave Apple better off. Only between the Galaxy S21 and the iPhone 12 there are several examples that prove it. However, a common one focuses on comparing the planned obsolescence of iOS and Android, and once again, Samsung have shown why they are at a disadvantage compared to iPhones.
This week Samsung just removed the Galaxy S8 from its security update program. As reported by 9to5GoogleSamsung is officially ending support for the S8 four years after its launch.
Apple beats Samsung again
While Samsung was updating the Galaxy S8 every two years and it just received a security patch in April. While this update schedule is good compared to other Android phones, it is a low period compared to Apple’s offer.
According to a study done by the analyst Statista, the average lifespan of smartphones in the United States in 2020 was 3.17 years. It is expected to grow to 3.43 years by 2022. This leaves Samsung within average and Apple well above.
Only the latest iOS 14.5 update is compatible with the latest iPhone 12 up to the original iPhone SE in 2016 and iPhone 6s from 2015. Leaving the six-year-old iPhone system available, including security updates and all new features available on iOS 14.5.
This latest action by Samsung confirms one of Apple’s historical advantages, which has always been in a much better position than Samsung to help users keep their phones updated for longer.
