A new report made the rounds on the internet as it concerns the fact that Apple will apparently discontinue its software assistance for the famous iPhone 6 and also iPhone 6 Plus. This news comes as a surprise for iPhone users. A French-language website, iPhonesoft, published an article which states that iOS 13 will no longer support the iPhone5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The assistance will also be cut for iPad mini 2 and iPad Air 2013. The reported cut of support will happen later this year when Apple will release the iOS 13.
The four models are among Apple’s most renowned former generation of iPhones. Both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were released by Apple in the year 2014, and the two devices are accounted as the number-one-selling iPhones even until now. However, what is best to do with these kinds of reports is to take them with a wholesome dash of salt.
iOS 13 won’t be compatible with iPhone5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus
If the statement is actually correct, just like 9to5Mac says, it would imply that Apple will have provided an extra year of software assistance for the iPhone 5s, instead of more recent iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It appears to be a pretty weird method for the tech giant’s most loved and renowned iPhone they developed.
Again, if the report proves to be accurate, it would mean that the aforementioned devices would have to stuck with iOS12, being deprived of Apple’s newest operating system, soon to be launched.
The article’s apparent source also disclosed the fact that Apple has been working on the performance level this year, and they could increase the speed of some of its devices up to 40 percent. The source also states that the iOS 12 has already been greatly improved up to this point. Regardless of the cause, the first stage (beta) of the iOS 13 will be launched at WWDC annual event on June the 3rd, followed with an official release sometime in the third quarter of the year, when Apple will launch the new generation of iPhones.
