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 6/6 Plus
This means that the supported iPhone list will be as follows:
iPhone XS/XS Max
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.
