Apple in the US will release the iOS 16 update for its iPhones next year. According to a post, iOS 16 will be leaving two of Apple’s older smartphones, so those phones won’t be able to update with this update.
With every major iOS update, Apple in Cupertino, USA sometimes abandons some old smartphones. This time it could be the iPhone 6s.
This is according to an iPhonesoft.fr post from France. According to this post, with iOS 16, the Cupertino company, US, will abandon the iPhone 6s smartphones, as well as the first generation iPhone SE.
The 6s was originally launched in 2015, which means that it is quite old and can be considered obsolete by smartphone standards. Over the years, Apple in the US has provided major updates to this phone, while Android phones typically benefit from 2-3 years of major updates and up to 5 years of security updates.
Keep in mind that just because Apple’s iPhone 6s cannot be upgraded in the US to iOS 16, it doesn’t mean that this smartphone won’t work. Only owners of this phone will have access to the latest improvements introduced by the new update.
Also, since the 6s is quite old, it’s possible that iOS 16 will not work on this smartphone anyway. If you still have 6s, anyone’s recommendation would be to buy a newer model to get access to the new update.
What do you think about the fact that Apple will abandon the first-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone SE smartphones with the iOS 16 update? Do you think it’s high time or could Apple have released at least one last major update for those phones?
