These iPhones will not get the latest iOS updates: Check the list to know if your mobile is one of them
Tech giant Apple is ready to launch another new update for the iPhone models. The iOS 16 software updates will be introduced by the company soon.
From a recent report, we can say that the old model of iPhones will not get the latest update. That means the iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and first-generation model of the iPhone SE will not get the iOS 16 upgrades. For the older models of the Apple iPhone, iOS 15 will be the last update.
iPhones which will get the iOS 16 updates-
Starting from iPhone 8, models that have launched after 2016, will be able to get the latest update. Let’s look at the full list of the possible models –
1. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 (2017)
2. iPhone X (2017), iPhone XR (2018)
3. iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max (2018)
4. iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max (2019)
5. iPhone 12,iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max (2020)

Why Apple will not give further updates to the older models-
There are many reasons available for not giving the iOS 16 upgrades to the older models. Most of the old variants have launched before 2017, and the interface is not that strong to consume the high upgrades.
The newer updates of iOS have not been made for the older variants. If the old models get the recent updates, then they will become the easy target points of the hackers.
Battery draining –
While upgrading a device to a newer version, the battery drains very quickly. Older models of the iPhones will work very slow if they get the latest high capacity update.
Like every other brand, Apple wants to sell more models. The fancy updates of iOS 16, will not work properly in the models like iPhone 6s.
