Ok well, this incident resulted in me upgrading my phone to a iPhone 5S because I could not downgrade to the old iOS version since Apple did not allow you to.
Now at about the time the iPhone 6 comes out, they have another iOS upgrade. I upgrade the iOS, now it does not connect to my car and a few other minor problems.

When the iOS 7.1 update came out, both my mother-in-law and brother-in-law had iPhone 4s's and when they upgraded it fried their wifi chips rendering their phones almost pointless. They contacted Apple and were both told that they needed to purchase new phones because their warranty was up. What kind of crap is that? I did some research online and I seen other folks with the same issues with no help from Apple. Mainly with the iPhone 4s
I had an iPhone 4 and luckily had not upgraded. I was scared too. I shouldn't be freaking scared to install a factory update like that. I promptly switched to a Galaxy Note 3 and have been happy ever since.
I agree 100% with your suspicions. I do feel as well that Apple is intentionally killing off a percentage of the older phones when new ones are released to further their sales. Just enough of them to stay under the radar and not rouse suspicions.
if that's the case then it means Apple has terrible hardware on their phones or that iOS isn't as great as they claim.
so if we go by that case hardware wise my phone should barely run the latest Android properly if at all it would be slow like the iPhone are experiencing.
Apple money grab at it's finest where people are afraid to upgrade to the latest OS version fearing it will screw up their devic.
