I can't imagine why people keep saying that. It is not the typical way Apple operates.

However, WM6 -> WP7 -> WP8 is a rather extreme "forced obsolescence" to take an example regarding other portable units. And incidentally the last WM6 phone, the HTC HD2, were produced some months AFTER the iPhone 3GS in question. Also, i highly doubt many, if any, android phones from 2009 can run android 4 at all, let alone 4.2. And especially not by official means.

The only reason Apple seem to get that rep is because people want the latest and newest, which usually means the model launched once every year. However, most companies in this industry have at least a once a year release cycle, usually more often.
