    I tend to upgrade every year or once every two years. The iPhone is great at being futureproof, I'd say it can last a minimum of 3 years and a maximum of who knows how long.

    In Poland where iPhone is more expensive and earnings for the same work are one forth of this in US buying 1000 $ dollars phone every year would be regarded as a stupidity so people uses it for 2 years or longer. Quite often is also buying older models cause it is often much chipper with minor differences to a new model. Lifespan of iPhone is definitely much longer than Android making it a good deal even in such markets.

    And you can extend the life with a new battery, which is less expensive than a new phone.

    Are they breaking or are you just switching devices for the fun of it?

    My guess as well. Doesn’t really count as “lifespan”. More of an unhealthy relationship with iPhones.

    I've had quite the same situations with my Android phones but right know I'm like a monogamous iPhone user.

    I've tried Android phones and I don't mind them. I just prefer the iPhone and Apple's ecosystem.
