Apple unveiled iOS 16 on Monday, among other things. However, older devices run out of power. You can find out which ones are here. […]
Last Monday, the Apple developer conference was held in Cupertino, California. Even if hardware is sometimes presented there, the software – especially Apple’s operating systems – is in the foreground. As expected, a new iOS version for the iPhone was presented, iOS 16. Apple is known for supplying its devices with software updates for a very long time. Nevertheless, every now and then a device falls out of the support program due to age.
This year there were more devices than expected. While it was expected that the now 7-year-old iPhone 6s would probably no longer be taken into account, other decisions by Apple have caused astonishment: for example, there is no longer iOS 16 for the following devices.
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone SE (Gen. 1, 2016)
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
- iPod touch (Gen. 7, 2019)
However, the iPod of the seventh generation of 2019 will not be put on the siding due to age, as Apple says, but because the iPods are generally no longer manufactured, since today music is streamed mainly from the smartphone anyway. The concern that iPhones at this age will no longer receive updates is therefore unfounded – you can safely assume that they are currently 5 years old.
