Why is everyone on MacRumors losing their minds today and acting like screaming toddlers? There is NOTHING normal about 2020 - you have to expect that the release schedule of Apple is completely upside down, due to you know - the global pandemic..

Give them a break... I recognize it wasn't everything everyone wanted in a perfect Apple world, but the world is upside and everyone is doing their best, including Apple.

That’s literally a huge FU to all the devs having to find out about this at 8 pm the day before. Like where is the GM? Is beta 8 supposed to be the GM? You can’t even upload a build with Xcode yet cuz there is no GM. What the actual F

Why bother? New OS with old iPhones is stupid. Its always a new iPhone to go with the new OS. Apple really screwed up this year.
No it is not. One of the main advantages of Apple is that you get at least 5 years of update support.

Having to buy a new phone just to run the new OS sounds like Android hell.

I love having the latest and greatest when the beta 2 of iOS hits months in advance.
