I already explained your answer many, many times.
1. You don't get security patches for the older versions of Android.
2. You don't get any OS bug fixes.
3. Some apps (such as Chrome) require newer versions of Android, so you can't run them.
4. Any time an Android OS version introduces new OS features, you don't get them.
So, which is it:
1. Android is perfect and never had a bug or security issue - plus the newer versions don't have anything that any user could ever want.
2. Inability to update Android devices to a newer version is a real problem.
No more dancing around. Answer the question.
I know the difference, I referenced the difference, but you seem to like to ignore parts of what people say.
1. I know that, I have referenced it before, you like to ignore certain things
2. I know that, I have referenced it before, you like to ignore certain things
3. Some apps? You have managed to list one (actually it wasn't you, I had to tell you that one)
4. Of course. And with Apple even if you get the iOS upgrade that doesn't mean you get the new features
Now for the big you don't seem to understand.
Apple only updates the core apps via an OS upgrade, there is no reason for this, they could be updated independently. Google updates them separately. I said you don't need an OS update just to update mail, you seem to ignore this fact. I have also said that you don't get general OS updates (which include OS bug fixes), but you like to pretend that I don't seem to know this. What is this?
