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.

And as for user error, how come my mom can do MORE on my 3+ year old HTC which still has the original battery in it than she does on her IPad which has to pretty much be perma plugged in because it will only run about 10 minutes while she reads in Kindle unplugged? She needs a device to read her books and magazines etc easily anymore which is why she let the salesperson talk her into the POS IPad because the screen was bigger... Le sigh

PCs are the same way, MacBooks, video games, you name it. Video Games are designed to push the limits of modern video cards thus necessitating hardware upgrades.
But seriously-- stop being old grannies. Windows 8.1 is awesome, Mac OS X Yosemite is awesome, the new iPhone 6 is gorgeous and works beautifully, as does the new Nexus 6 or Galaxy Note 4.

I don't think it's limited to Apple...
At the beginning of the year I was still using my Samsung Galaxy s2. Worked great. Then, 3 months before the launch of the Galaxy s5 my phone became sluggish, the battery lasted about 6 hours with little to no use (although the battery probably reached the end of its life in any case), random reboots and several other small but irritating problems.
I also reset all of my network settings and disconnected from iCloud by not accepting the terms and agreement.
