    Since it's getting iOS 15, that's likely to be 7 years, at least.

    Pretty sure the average person has no idea they stopped getting security updates and even if you tell them they have no idea what that actually means for them.
    wait what? my motorola android doesnt get security updates? i bought this thing in december 2020.......

    Samsung has also started giving quaranteed updates for 5 years, but IIRC that is from the introduction of the phone, not from the time of sale, like apple does.

    Not sure they would honor the sale of an old out of production model that someone had in stock for years. They are still better than Android in that regard.

    Apple phones are not something I'll ever want.

    They define the sales as being from apple directly IIRC, might have also included authorized premium partners

    Well, I dont link any CC information (fuck app stores), and i do my banking via a dongle. But you are completely right, i am flying close to the sun and my eventual upgrade should take that into account.

    You will probably need a component replaced within 5 years. Whether it is battery or screen. At which point you will replace because Apple components cost, might as well buy a new phone. Apple is getting more and more restrictive on what you can replace, the new single unit face ID chip attached to the screen for instance. That makes service updates beyond 5 years pretty redundant.

    From Apfel themselves:

    Products are considered obsolete when Apple stopped distributing them for sale more than 7 years ago.
    My only comment is that apple care is inexpensive and well worth it for the $20 no questions asked screen replacements.

    Also:
    Monster-branded Beats products are considered obsolete regardless of when they were purchased
    meh

You could spot the Germans, "Fake news, all ships are in dry dock for repairs, and we definitely have no helicopters that could fly."

    You mean Belarus is sending migrants to the Polish border telling them "just tell the Poles that Germany will take them". With PiS propaganda against Germany, it doesn't look good according to Polish media. German media basically ignores the issue beyond "Belarus is fucking with Poland."

    I was actually referring to the Polish courts declaring supremacy over the EU courts but that works too.

    ...which isn't a sole German, but an EU problem.

    My personal opinion on that matter: I'm torn about it. In theory and generally speaking, I support the Polish stance. Otherwise - again generally speaking, EU regulation could overrule any national constitution. While country's might be willing to adjust their constitution to comply with EU regulations, But being forced to do so no matter what, isn't what I personally want. If we want that to be a thing, then actually follow through and create the United States of Europe - which I would support.

    Now, when it comes to Poland's particular ruling, this ofc continues Poland's "give me the money, fuck everything else"-stance the Polish government has shown since the PiS is the ruling party. I have no source to prove that, but I remember a Polish journalist claiming in a talk show ("Internationaler Frühschoppen") that Poland's populace still largely is pro-EU.

    A country usually declares its willingness to adjust their laws and /or constitution (or equivalent) when they sign the treaties to join the EU.

    The list of counties that the EU conquered, subjugated and forced to sign is on the short side.
