Petition to Apple: Fix old iOS devices!

Postby David Owen » Thu May 05, 2011 4:47 pm

Apple recently abandoned support for the iPhone 3G and other older iOS devices, including critical security updates and repair of the Location Services bug(s), in later versions of iOS 4.3, including iOS 4.3.3. These still-functional devices and their owners deserve access to the same security updates and critical bug fixes enjoyed by owners of the newer iOS devices.

With that in mind, I've created a petition to Apple, Inc., asking the all-things-i maker (thanks to Ken Ray for that one) to commit to providing critical security updates for iOS devices for a period of at least 5 years after the device is released, rather than their current practice of about 3 years.

Please consider signing it!

Provide iOS Security Updates for Older Devices.
