Apple may end support for eight iOS and iPadOS devices next year. These devices include the iPhone 6s, the first iPhone SE, the iPad Mini 4, and the iPad Pro tablets. This is a French iPhone website claims.
It depends on the French site iPhonesoft According to internal sources at Apple. The program will run on all iPhones from the iPhone 7, which was released in September 2016. This means that iOS 16 requires an Apple A10 chip or later. This means that support for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will expire. These two phones appeared in September 2015.
iPhone 6s models will continue to receive iOS 15 updates until iOS 16 is released. This will likely happen in the second half of 2022. This means that these devices have received seven years of updates during their lifespan. According to iPhonesoft, the first iPhone SE will also not get an upgrade to iOS 16. This phone was released in March 2016. The current iPhone SE from 2020 is still supported. IPadOS 16 will also drop support for the iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7″ and 12.9″ from 2015, and the fifth generation iPad. All newer iPad models are still supported.
iPhonesoft has correctly predicted in the past iPhone devices that are no longer supported by new iOS versions. like him Website reported early that iOS 14 will work on all iPhones that support iOS 13. However, last year the website incorrectly reported that the iPhone 6s would not be supported by iOS 15. The previous year, iPhonesoft was partially correct in its predictions for iOS 13. The site reported After that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s will not be supported in iOS 13, that’s right. However, the website also incorrectly wrote that the 2016 iPhone SE will not get iOS 13.
There are no specifics about iOS 16 and iPadOS yet. For example, it is not known what new features will be introduced in this version of operating systems. Apple will likely announce upcoming versions of iOS and iPadOS at its WDDC developer event. This event is supposed to take place in June; This has been the case for the past fifteen years.
