There have been several security updates for iOS 12 during the past year, including one last week. Those are usually issued because of newly discovered vulnerabilities.Are you aware of any security issues with the version you are using? It's been out for a year, I'd guess. It's been well tested for vulnerabilities by now.
Will you take the security risk or buy new phones? Perhaps you don't know yet......
I will consider upgrading to a refurbished 7 or 8. I guess it makes more sense to go with at least an 8.That's discouraging. I have a 6 Plus. My wife has a 6s. Though her 6s just makes the list, I guess we will have to look at newer phones. Not sure I want to pay the price for the new 11 models. Guess I need to start investigating. Thanks for the heads up.
Yup, no need to upgrade until you face obsolescence and no security patches like you and I do. And I'm still not jumping to the latest and greatest.The reader comments to this article are rather telling: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/17/technology/personaltech/iphone-11-review.html
