Breaking News : Your iPhone is expected to perform for a maximum of three years: Apple
Advertisement
#1
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.

According to a report on Forbes.com, iPhone’s productive life cycle will be up at the three-year mark, as will the Apple Watch while your OS X — a series of operating systems developed and marketed by Apple Inc. — and AppleTV devices will get an extra twelve months to reach the four-year mark.

“To model customer use, we measure the power consumed by a product while it is running in a simulated scenario,” Apple was quoted as saying.

“Daily usage patterns are specific to each product and are a mixture of actual and modelled 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,” the company added.

These numbers are in harmony with Apple’s strategy of rolling out operating system updates to older devices and the hardware offered to replace older units.

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.

No, your Apple iPhone won’t expire in 3 years

Apple had raised many eyebrows when it on its environmental policy’s QnA section revealed expected life cycle of its products. Surprisingly, Apple revealed that the life cycle for the iPhones and Apple Watch was up to three years whereas OSX and AppleTV devices had four years of life cycle. The revelation was widely interpreted that Apple’s devices did not have a long life. Now, Apple has clarified that it expects the first owner of an iPhone or Apple Watch to use the device for at least three years, and the device to last much longer.

“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,” Apple said in a statement.
 
“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,” it added.

This essentially means Apple used a certain metric to asses the life cycle of its products, and expects the first owner to use its devices for at least three years before it is handed down or traded in. It doesn’t mean the iPhones will just stop working or die after three years.

Apple also clarifies that this isn’t the first time it has made such disclosures. Apple in its new Environmental Responsibility Report 2016 details about its initiatives for green energy. The company said it that it has plans to set up over “4 gigawatts of new clean energy worldwide, including 2 gigawatts in China by 2020.”

The report coincides its Earth Day campaign under which it has teamed up with WWF to launch environment-focused apps on its App Store. Between April 15 and April 24, 100 percent of the proceeds from the purchase of a participating Apps for Earth app or an associated In-App Purchase, will go to WWF.
