- A new report claims iOS 15 won't support the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE (1st generation), iPad (5th generation), iPad mini 4, or iPad Air 2.
- iOS 14 supported all of the same devices as iOS 13, but reports suggest that iOS 15 will no longer offer support to any devices with A9 chips or earlier.
- Apple might occasionally update iOS 14 in the future to keep unsupported devices secure.
Apple does as good a job as any smartphone maker when it comes to supporting its devices years post-launch, but it can't support every iPhone in perpetuity. Therefore, each new iOS release typically ends support for at least one older iPhone model, and it looks like two might be on the chopping block in 2021.
This week, French site iPhoneSoft reported that a developer at Apple shared the list of devices that will be supported by the iOS 15 beta when it arrives next June at WWDC 2021. If the information iPhoneSoft received is correct, Apple will be dropping support for every device that uses an A9 chip or earlier, which includes the iPhone 6s. Although the iPhone 6s is over six years old, it's still one of the best-selling devices on resale markets.
