iPhone, iPad, Mac? Here's how long your Apple device will last

Knowing how long your device will last is important when weighing up whether to lay down hard-earned cash on a product.

Now you can do the calculation yourself following instructions from Asymco mobile analyst Horace Dediu, who has crunched the numbers on Apple sales and active devices to calculate the average lifespan of Apple devices.

The average lifespan of all Apple products, including iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, and iPod touch between 2013 and today is four years and three months, according to Dediu's calculation.

every Sony Vaio I have ever bought, so far 11 and counting, runs perfect, on linux or solaris, and I am a happy camper, since I have spent 20% of what my apple-friendly-friends have spent.
