Electronic devices have a limited lifetime. Not so much because the electronics wear out, but because the technology ages. A typical example is a smartphone. People replace them because they seek the newest features, like communication speed, screen size, biometrics, and energy capacity. Due to the fast technological advancements, smartphones have an average lifespan of only 2.5 years. However, this parameter varies per product. TVs have a life expectancy of 6 years, and cars even survive 12 years.
