I bought a new iPhone SE and life became better. The problem with Apple they have a built in feature that means that they will not update after a couple of years so they can push you into buying a new one.

I think that is incorrect, Den.  One of the reasons I'm tempted back to an iPhone is that it will continue to receive iOS updates for five years, whereas Samsung phones only receive three.  The iPhone 6S can still be updates to the latest iOS, as far as I am aware.  The only issue is that the older the hardware, the more it may struggle with newer software.

Presumably it would have whinged if she had to update it manually?

That's no way to talk about Mrs Clive.  I shall be submitting a report.   :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil:

I swapped to a Samsung Phone and the battery life was amazing and after that it went downhill. I would lose signal in places where I never lost it on a iPhone.

Mrs Den has an iPad that will no longer update but mine will all the while. I still love Microsoft though.

Mrs Clive's iPad seems to take care of itself as far as updates are concerned.  Presumably it would have whinged if she had to update it manually?

As it happens, without wishing to tempt fate, I've not had any problems with Windows Updates recently.  Since I've got my new laptop and desktop PCs, I hardly notice them. 

With regards phone updates, I can only relate to Android, and we usually get a security update every month (or perhaps two), and a major OS updated once yearly.  The security updates are not usually a problem, and take about 20 minutes all in all (including download time), but the annual OS revisions usually break something that worked perfectly well before.  As Android isn't quite the 'walled garden' Apple is, Google tend to make changes that mess up existing apps, which then take time to catch up.  It's not always an issue, but they've messed up the music apps and playlists over the last two upgrades, and they are still not really working as they should.  Since the latest upgrade there is now a delay with music apps updating with anything that is added to the SD card.  I would actually quite like to switch back to an iPhone but the thought of of having to replace all of my current apps is a bit of a nightmare.  Ten years ago I would have relished the prospect of a new toy, but these days I can't be arsed.

How many times a year do Apple have to update their software.

Yet another this morning that took ages to complete. If it was Microsoft Windows 10 it would be all over the forum.  o:)

Dave comes home from the pub, drunkest he's been in a long time, and collapses into bed next to his sleeping wife. Later, he's woken by a brilliant flash of light at the end of his bed, which his still sleeping wife seems oblivious to. St. Peter appears in all his glory, standing over the two of them.

"You have died my son, of alcohol poisoning" says St. Peter. Dave is obviously distraught and begs and pleads with the saint to be given another chance at life.

"Well..." says St. Peter, thumbing through his saintly handbook, "There is a little known rule which might help. Apparently you can be reincarnated in special circumstances if you wish, but only as a dog or as a chicken I'm afraid.." Dave, living next door to a chicken farm, agrees to be reincarnated as a chicken, at least so he can still see his wife.

BOOM, the man is suddenly now a chicken, pecking around the chicken farm. A rooster approaches him and says "Hey! You must be the new arrival here! How's everything going?" "Pretty good" says Dave, "though my stomach feels a bit funny.." "Well you're obviously about to lay an egg! Give it a try... push one out!" So Dave wriggles and squirms and wriggles and squirms and out pops a nice egg!

"That felt great!" thinks Dave, "I think I'll lay another one!" So again he wriggles and squirms and wriggles and squirms and then !!BANG!! His wife angrily slaps him on the back of his head and screams in a rage: "For Christ's sake David!! You've crapped the bed again!!!"   :crazy:
