Older Smart Devices Dying A Slow Death, Starting With Sonos
With technology increasing rapidly, most of the older smart devices are bound to die. Sonos is among the first to get started on this.
When the company announced it would retire a slew of 10-year-old devices, like the original Play 5, the consumer backlash was swift.
This is something that every other company is also following to stay up to date with the ever-changing technology. All your old devices will still work but the manufacturer will slowly cut off the upgrades. You will be able to play around with the devices until it eventually dies.
Devices also end up in landfill when the company is bought over. For instance, Pebble, the smartwatch maker, was bought by Fitbit. All their old products stopped receiving updates, thereby ending up in a landfill.
Other major company giants like Sony, Microsoft, Logitech, and many more have followed the same tradition by retiring old devices. They make the announcements and cut off the updates and the support that the devices receive. After all, it is in the best interest for the consumers as well to stay updated with the latest technology.
