The bad news of the day for iPhone users: what phones will be out of date in 2022


iOS 16 gives up support for the first generation iPhone 6S, 7 and SE. Apple will also be saying goodbye to iPads, older Macs and the Apple Watch Series 3.

As is tradition, Apple will leave behind some of its older devices when it launches the latest operating systems. When iOS 16 arrives this fall, it will be available for iPhone 8 and later models – in other words, all the phones Apple has released since 2017. That means iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and iPhone SE users (first generation ) will not be able to upgrade to iOS 16, writes Engadget.

When it comes to the iPadOS 16, Apple will drop support for several devices, the iPad Mini 4 and iPad Air 2. Given that the Mini 4 debuted in 2015 and the Air 2 is from 2014, it’s safe to say that it “looks age”. In any case, it’s a testament to their resilience that Apple has backed them up to the iPadOS 15.
