Ok, maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I'm able to deal with the idea that what I use isn't the latest, or the newest. There are 100,000 existing apps to choose from, and frankly as a user that's plenty. As a developer I can see the opportunity to make apps with better features, but as a user I'm not really that bothered because I don't feel I have to keep on the treadmill of newness.
If you are obsessed with getting the latest, you're going to end up buying a new phone every 6 months anyway. Relax. It's fine.
