@allison @mewmew @n0btc Old iPhones still get updates and can be obtained for reasonable prices :). $150 will get you an iPhone 7 128 GB in almost mint condition, which is still plenty fast and has plenty of storage. But this is no longer arguing about OSes from a technical perspective. There’s Android phones that easily cost more than iPhones, too.
X200 is a nice notebook for Coreboot, though. I still have mine for exactly that reason.
@allison @mewmew @n0btc Battery can be changed (done that). Breaking them can easily be fixed yourself since cheap 3rd party replacement parts are easily available. Apps depends on what apps you need. Headphone jack: Starting iPhone 7 they come with an adapter cable, 6s still has a HPJ and is not much older. Most androids no longer have HPJ either.
@brad @allison @mewmew @n0btc The community is able to provide newer userland on the same old kernel. Security bugs in drivers are still not fixed. So far, every iPhone got updates for so many years that it basically fell apart before it no longer got updates. An iPhone that gets updates for 7 years is nothing unusual.
