Because frankly you don't know what you are talking about.

Considering the info available you have no way of knowing this. However if you follow releases of info to developers you would have realized long ago that Apple would be making greater use of the installed GPU in each new OS/X release. It isn't like Apple hides this stuff.
They are certainly making a choice, but that choice is to support hardware which will produce the best results for the OS.
Apple's business model is to force users to upgrade every 2-3 years. That is it in a nutshell.
This is total BS, no one has to upgrade their OS, nor their computer. My personal one is now 4 years old, it still runs even if it is slightly damaged.
I know a lot of you refuse to question Apple's actions because you own Apple stock or whatever.
That is a foolish statement to make.
