@allison @mewmew @n0btc Old iPhones still get updates and can be obtained for reasonable prices :). $150 will get you an iPhone 7 128 GB in almost mint condition, which is still plenty fast and has plenty of storage. But this is no longer arguing about OSes from a technical perspective. There’s Android phones that easily cost more than iPhones, too.
X200 is a nice notebook for Coreboot, though. I still have mine for exactly that reason.
@allison @mewmew @n0btc Battery can be changed (done that). Breaking them can easily be fixed yourself since cheap 3rd party replacement parts are easily available. Apps depends on what apps you need. Headphone jack: Starting iPhone 7 they come with an adapter cable, 6s still has a HPJ and is not much older. Most androids no longer have HPJ either.
Apart from my browser (to keep up with Google changing the web standards) and youtube-dl (to keep up with Google changing how YouTube works), none of my software ever needs another update. In fact, I don't notice when I've forgotten to install them for months.
You'd discard an entire piece of hardware just because updates have stopped‽
