Whether we have an Android phone or an iPhone, you have been able to check how regularly we receive system updates. In the case of Apple, the truth is that we are used to update the iPhone software versions once a year. In the coming months, the new version of iOS will be released and this has resulted in some improvements and features being filtered over the past few weeks and days. Now, like every time an update of this type arrives, there are certain iPhone models that will stay on the road and not receive that update.
A report published by a French media specializing in Apple devices and systems has revealed the phone models that will no longer receive the new version of iOS, that is, the models that are not compatible with iOS 15.
This means that they will no longer receive the new version of Apple’s operating system and everything associated with it. In other words, they won’t be able to access the new features and enhancements that will come with the new version, which is expected to happen in the middle of the year, around the month of June.
IPhone and iPad models not getting iOS 15
The models that are not compatible with iOS 15 are models with a lower processor than Apple’s A10. This means that models from 5 or 6 years ago would no longer receive this update. Taking this into account, we would say that the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and the first iPhone SE, models released in 2015 and 2016 respectively, will not be compatible with iOS 15 as they have the A9 chip.
And it is all that indicates that the requirement to ensure sufficient performance for streaming, video games and the interface in general of the new version of Apple’s operating system, the device should be equipped with the Apple A10 chip.
In addition to the above mentioned iPhone models, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE from 2016, this also affects other devices from the company, the iPads. In this case, the three models that would remain without the update are the iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2 and iPad 5 as they have an A8, A8X and A9 chip respectively.
While the source that published this list is fairly reliable, there is still some hope in iOS 15 if you have one of these iPhone or iPad models until officially confirmed by Apple.
