As you know, in June of this year, during the WWDC 2021 conference, the American corporation Apple will present its new operating system for smartphones and tablets to the public. It will turn out to be such, of course, iOS 15, and they are credited with a whole lot of various various features with which it is guaranteed to definitely please all users, because it actually has something to pleasantly surprise everyone. Even if the new OS has not yet been officially presented, but it is already known from reliable sources that it will receive a certain redesign, which will be executed by analogy with the macOS Big Sur 11 platform available now, that is, iPhone and iPad users will have to get used to the changed interface and appearance of applications.
Nevertheless, as expected, not all models of Apple mobile devices will be updated to the new operating system in the form of iOS 15, but only the most modern models. Apple is gradually phasing out support for older iPhones and iPads, which means that all of these users are deprived of access to the latest software. In all this, of course, there is nothing good, and it cannot be, but it is understandable, because tens of millions of people still use old phone models, having no opportunity or desire to buy new ones. As it turned out, such models of smartphones as iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE (2016) will not be updated to the latest operating system.
All these mobile devices, as well as any older ones, will be outdated in the summer of 2021, so their owners will not be able to access the iOS 15 operating system in any way. The last OS for all of these phones will be iOS 14, which is now available for download and installation on these electronic devices. Smartphones, which Apple has decided to drop support, are based on the A9 processor, which is already quite outdated in recent years. All these phones came out more than five years ago, and during such an impressive period of time their technical equipment is largely outdated, so the new platform on these models is not able to start and work.
To the delight of many people, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be updated to iOS 15, but this update will be the last for these mobile devices, which should definitely be taken into account by all their owners. The 7th generation iPod Touch based on the Apple A10 chip will also be updated to the new platform. As for tablets, the new OS will not be available for iPad mini 4 (2015), iPad Air 2 (2014) and iPad 5th generation (2017) based on A8, A8X and A9 processors. In practice, all this means that many users using outdated Apple technology, one way or another, are guaranteed to be left without fresh software, but at the same time it will still be possible to use smartphones and tablets without any restrictions.
Earlier it was reported that the video game Grand Theft Auto V was released for free for smartphones running Android and iOS.
