No software update since 2017

Why hasn’t there been any new updates since 2017 does GoPro just stop once they release a new model and hope others will just buy a newer one . Many of us can’t afford too

Re: No software update since 2017

Unless there's some sort of serious flaw that requires a firmware update to fix, you're not going to see any more releases.  Other issues are usually fixed via an App update.  If there's a manufactuing defect with your camera a Firmware fix isn't going to do anything to correct it.  Plus the life expectancy of an action camera probably isn't above 24 months.
