It's called "Planned Obsolescence" and many companies do it. Apple is notorious for doing but they certainly aren't the only one.

that's not exactly evidence of anything. it's simply one person's rambling argument about why they believe this is the case. there's no real evidence given

No. That article is complete BS, based off of another article from the NYT. It's stupid, short-sighted thinking. iOS is slow because Catherine Rampell (the NYT columnist that penned the original article) she's running an iPhone 4! Need I remind you, the iPhone 4 was officially released on June 24, 2010 (US) with only 512MB RAM. It's been over 3 years since then. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S was released June 2010, also with 512MB RAM. Can you fathom a guess as to what the latest OS Samsung released for it was? It was Android 2.3. If it's even possible (haven't checked), try putting Android 4.3 on the device and then let me know just how "fast" it is.

 

In conclusion, there's no such thing as "planned obsolescence", just the fact that software requirements go up and older hardware (sometimes) cannot keep up.

This. This so much.

My VZW iPhone 4 is slowing down, but how do people not expect it? My 3G did the same thing eventually, too. People will find anything to pit against Apple.

Mine is slowing down also to the point where I just want it gone. Apple could make me happy by resigning 6 so I could go back.
