TheManhatten, 10 Dec 2014iOS is closed source and only Apple owns code and only they providing updates unlike android, ... moreIt has nothing to do with open source or closed source.
Apple has enough power to tell the carriers that they themselves will handle updates. There are no carrier specific versions of iphones. (carriers have to agree to it because of the demand for iphones):
Apple pusges update -> all users
On android side.. Major updates go like this:
Google -> Manufacturers like samsung modify it for their devices (including carrier variants) -> send it to carriers who test it + add their bloat -> then carrier devices get the update.
Cariers themselves don't take the google sources and do stuff.. Samsung does.. And even when samsung is ready (non carrier device model get update) carriers are mostly lazy and delay the carrier device updates..
worst... after updating my Iphone4s with 8.1.2 its completely lazyyyy(slow)..compared to before update.please concentrate on this issue.....
harlekkin, 10 Dec 2014Apple doesn't rely on carriers, why does Android? Hehehe you are touching the core of the never ending fighting between iOS and android!
...let's putting in this way, Apple is the Sun and the carriers are the planets turning around it.... than Androids are the planets and the carriers are the little moons around them... That's what make Apple strong and expensive, they have ONE phone, ONE OS, that's it. They can focus all the resources to that make it always working good and the all carriers just focus on one update for ALL the customer that have iphone! With Android you have maybe the same number of customer and they have let's say 1000 different phone: htc, one, desire, galaxy 1,2,3,4,5,6.... Alpha,beta,gamma...:)....lg g1,2,3,4.... Much better way to go with Apple, one product well done and that's it! :)

The problem are the other manufacturers.. Like Samsung has this huge portfolio of devices ever year.. Most of them (except the flagships) will never see updates officially.. Sure there are custom roms and ports.
But well that comes with the way Google choose to handle Android ecosystem.. But there was no way android would have grown so fast if google had controlled it with an iron grip.
Just Bought an iPhone 5s 16 GB Gold for 62k from iCity 2 days Back in Pakistan. It's over heating and dies in less than 1 hour. It's Annoying. iCity Sucks! -_- All refurbished Apple in Pakistan. There Should be Official Apple Stores in Pakistan.
