What's New in Version 1.6.3
small bug fix
This app is ok
This app's main purpose is to keep you from buying a product just before the new model is released. It tells you how long the development cycle is on each Apple product. It doesn't tell how long the product lasts between repairs or how long the average user keeps the product. So the app's term "average lifespan" is a poor choice. It would be nice if it told you what time of year Apple usually releases each product so you don't have to do the math.
One of the other users seems to be in the dark with regard to the apps description of lifespan...I believe that the app identifies lifespan, by the the next product replacement or upgrade made by Apple. It's not meant to identify the failure rate or true life of the different devices.
The lifespan of the device is determined by its relevance in the tech world before becoming obsolete, not by it's longevity of functioning properly. Obviously a MacBook Pro will function longer than 166 days. Decent app.
