“There are a lot of different stories on the Internet: don’t update, something else ... But you know, if by chance Android and iOS want to ban operating systems and block them, not update, namely block them, someone will be saved, but if the bulk will fall out and be turned into a brick, then, unfortunately, there will be no salvation, ”he said.
