I was told that the problem lies with Android . the version 4 can not be upgraded to the current  V6 now in use in the latest model cellphones

Frustrating when your hardware cannot keep pace with current software and you are forced to buy new hardware....

My ipad is running on ios 8, about five years behind and a lot of apps I wish to install require the latest software..

Built in redundancy ? I guess . I believe the latest phones from Apple now operate on Androit 8 ..
