We schedule the updates on all our devices to take place automatically so it really isn't an inconvenience. And they really are not quite that often: Since the past few years, Apple has consistently released major iOS Updates every year around September. They also release incremental updates with critical bug fixes and updates based upon the feedback every quarter (usually). As far as our smart phones go, we enjoy the fact we have our calendars, grocery lists, do it lists, diet programs, weather, maps, flashlight, compass, camera, photos, music, boarding passes, scan & go (for shopping), research tool (Google), wallet, shopping cards, and hearing aid controls all on small tool (smartphone) that fits snuggly in our pocket; and yes we use them as a phone also. Overall, the smart phone is an amazing device.
