If there is something that Apple gets right, it would be with their software updates. This is because the company tends to support its devices for as long as possible, versus Android in which your mileage may vary from brand to brand, but typically you get about two years worth of updates.
With the announcement of iOS 13, we’re sure some are probably wondering if their iPhone is compatible with the update. According to Apple, as long as you have the iPhone SE or newer, then you should be able to update to iOS 13 when the update is released later in the year, possibly alongside the 2019 iPhones.
This includes the iPhone SE, iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 8, 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and the XS Max. Notably absent from the list is the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, although it doesn’t really come as a surprise as last we heard, iOS 13 was rumored to finally drop support for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and it turns out that they were right.
As some have pointed out, the list of support devices is smaller compared to previous iOS updates, but we reckon that support devices as old as the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is still pretty good.
