Apple says Your iPhone Will Expire In 3 years

In a major announcement, US electronic giant Apple has said the iPhones have a life expectancy of three years and so does the Apple watch while AppleTV devices expire in four years. In a recent update to its environmental policy, Apple addressed the question of how long an Apple device is expected to remain in use.

To model customer use, we measure the power consumed by a product while it is running in a simulated scenario. Daily usage patterns are specific to each product and are a mixture of actual and modeled customer use data. Years of use, which are based on first owners, are assumed to be four years for OS X and tvOS devices and three years for iOS and watchOS devices,” said Apple.

The company further added “That doesn’t mean we expect the product to last only three years – the three years is an assumption of years owned by first owners (not including the iPhone getting handed down or traded in, etc. etc.) in order to measure/assess Product Greenhouse Gas Life Cycle.

For example, the recently launched iPhone SE, which is designed similar to iPhone 5S, can be upgraded from new iOS 9 to the next three years of iOS updates-something the iPhone 5S would be unable to do. The time-scale between the release of the 5S and the SE is just inside that three-year window. However, Apple does provide compatibility of its operating systems to older hardware. — IANS
