#1 "All iPhone users get the latest updates."
Many iPhone users are looking forward to iOS 7. Personally, one of the reasons I moved to Android was what I saw of iOS 7. You can read about that here: iOS 7: why I'm finally dumping my iPhone for an Android.
The assertion, "All iPhone users get the latest updates," like most other tech assertions, is somewhat true. All phones from the iPhone 4 and later will support iOS 7, but the old iPhone 3 and 3S won't be supported. Likewise, the original iPad won't upgrade to iOS 7 and is being effectively abandoned.
This problem occurs on the Android side of the house, of course. The Google-reference versions of phones and tablets get upgrades right away, but the devices made by other manufacturers may or may not ever get an upgrade. My year-plus old Nexus 7 got upgraded to Android 4.3, but my three-month-old Galaxy S4 is still running 4.2.x and there's no date for when that will upgrade.
Should Apple users feel better about themselves because of this? Sure, if you are a recent purchaser. Otherwise, you're in the same boat as the Android folks.
