I did receive security updates on it maybe as long as a month ago.
My 2005 Bonneville is the same as when I bought it and it still
works. You don't /need/ all supposed  /progress/ updates. They are
just there to keep you spending money on the most part.

But Apple provides the updates free...  So why not make use of the
extra features.  Sure, many of them aren't things I use, but there
are security and bug fix changes as well, so I always update.  Now if
GM would just install backup cameras, and blind-spot detection on my
2003 Impala....  Grin.

One, when an update breaks your existing Apps then the "free" part
seems more than a bit unwelcome and two, I do not believe even Apple
provides hardware upgrades for free.

IF it does, then you should have been warned of this ahead of time.  Not
something that happens often, at least not on the Apple ecosystem.

The iPad itself warned me that two of my apps would not work with the next major iOS version. It would have to be two of my favourites!
