Because Apple uses it’s own iOS operating system on all iPhones, it is the company responsible for creating and releasing software updates, meaning everyone gets them at the same time. The Z3, on the other hand, uses Sony’s modified version of Google’s Android. Android updates regularly, but it is down to the individual phone companies to adapt those updates for the handsets they released that do not run the vanilla version of the OS.
