We've heard this riff being played before. Apple is about to release a new version of iOS and a new iPhone will follow. Folks download the update and discover that their previously OK iPhone is slowed down so they feel that they are being pushed towards an expensive upgrade by Apple as part of a program of planned obsolescence.
