    iOS 13 likely to drop support for a lot of older iPhone hardware

    Snippet taken from ZDnet.com

    iOS 11 and 12 have been kind to those running older iPhones and iPads, not only giving older devices extra time but also a performance boost. But a report suggests that iOS 13 will drop support for a number of older iPhones and iPads

    But it looks like iOS 13 will be the end of the line for the iPhone 5S, along with a handful of other devices. According to a report by The Verifier, the following iPhones will not be supported by iOS 13:

    iPhone 5s
    iPhone SE
    iPhone 6/6 Plus

    This means that the supported iPhone list will be as follows:

    iPhone XS/XS Max
    iPhone XR
    iPhone X
    iPhone 8/8 Plus
    iPhone 7/7 Plus
    iPhone 6S/6S Plus

    If you are running an older iPhone, it’s probably a good time to start thinking about what you are going to do between now and iOS 13 landing later this year.

    Expect an iOS 13 beta to land soon after the WWDC 2019 keynote, scheduled for June 3. The final release will most likely land in September.
