why have iPhone software gone so choppy over the years?

Seems as tho last stable software was iOS 6.1.3 barely any glitches. Think iPhone slowly burning out like old Nokia's did back in the day. If Steve jobs was alive today think this wouldn't of happened… Read More

you don't need a iPhone every 6 months to get iOS 11 - all compatible phones will receive the update. I am however with EE on their 4GEE Max Plan so I will get a new iPhone every year anyway!

they spent a fortune removing the head phone jack, no money left for code monkeys.
no respecting code monkeys work for apple any ways, they prefer bananas to apples

CPU and battery tech is reaching its limits. With apple devices the UI is given priority over background tasks. Chuck a load of new features into the UI and it slows right down. Just the way it is unless you add extra cores and a more multithreaded OS.

You don't need a new iPhone to get/install the update. You just need a new iphone to be able to run the bloody thing efficiently!

It is best St. Jobs remains dead (was worried during easter that he might rise - just got lucky he didnt)

Also it will be best that Apple (as a company, dies soon) !

Pretty sure the latest iOS runs great, certainly on devices from the 5S onwards.

Nope, well not on my SE

I came back to Apple after years and years away, iOS is brilliant these days, back then it was very restrictive & I hated it. If anything out of the main 3 (Microsoft, Android & iOS) it seems to be the furthest away from a public beta OS. What issues are you having OP ?

Heard Apple updates obsolete phone. Especially as SE was released March 2016 old hardware getting new updates ? Never a good idea if anything lower the iOS faster the phone I've always thought

I think you've been given flawed advice - the SE has very capable hardware. Not really sure what Apple can do for you here, since on the one hand you're saying their software is choppy and your apps are crashing but on the other hand you're refusing to update the phone software to one that could well crush some of the bugs you are experiencing. The app crashes could be down to this outdated software.

Certainly I used an SE for a couple of months last year on the same software as you and it was incredibly fast and smooth. I don't recall any app crashes either.

You have to remember that as users' needs change the OS gets more and more packed with script, and these added complexities inevitably increase the likelihood of bugs VS software from many years ago (which didn't have all these features). I use both iOS and Android and have tried many iterations of devices on both platforms and I still think iOS is the smoother and more reliable operating system, even if Android still has certain features I prefer.

I'm not telling you to update if you like things as they are, and I can't guarantee it will fix your woes but I can't think of anything else you can try, and it's hard to be sure what's what if you're not even running the latest OS. The iPhone 4 came out many years before the OS update that made it rubbish. I like to think that Apple have learned from there mistake, but I don't think it was an intentional act on their part to make people upgrade. The iPhone SE should be more than capable of handling software updates for years to come, as it has more-or-less the same internals as the 6S.

Your other option is to do a full wipe and restore (assuming you've backed up to iCloud). There could be a rogue app or general software glitch causing your issues.

I don't think you can roll back once you update. What do you stand to lose if you update? The latest version of iOS added a new file system that led to my iPhone 7 Plus actually getting faster! Not sure what it does to the SE as I haven't used one recently but the specs are still good.

Yeah every company does this tho lol. Apple were sued over this back in 2015. I'm running a SE. So must be a software issue

Irrespective of any conspiracies about Apple software updates, the SE is just too new to fall foul of this as it was only released last year.
