Rumor: Apple to drop support for iPhone 6s and original iPhone SE with iOS 15 next year

This comes after Apple preserved compatibility with all those devices this season with iOS 14.

The report comes from The Verifier, which has a mixed track record in regards to Apple rumors. With that said, it’d correctly report the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 wouldn’t get upgrades past iOS 12. It also correctly reported that iOS 14 would encourage all of the same iPhones as iOS 13.

This could mean that iOS 15 would run on the following iPhones:

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were initially introduced in September of 2015, followed by the iPhone SE in March of 2016. The devices were incredibly popular and have received over four decades of software updates from Apple.

With the iPhone 12 miniature as well as the second-generation iPhone SE, Apple now sells two modern devices that fit the form part of the iPhone 6s design. The second-generation iPhone SE is actually almost identical to the iPhone 6s concerning layout, but with the modern A13 processor indoors. The iPhone 12 mini is smaller, but offers a larger display because of its edge-to-edge design, alongside the A14 chip and an improved camera system.

As for what to expect in iOS 15, we haven’t heard any rumors regarding new features or modifications coming with the update. We don’t expect Apple to officially announce iOS 15 until WWDC 2021. Do you’ve got anything on your wish list? Let us all know down in the comments!
