What types of iPhones can’t be supported by iOS 16 this year?

Reporting from Notebook Check, Saturday (23/4/2022), Tipster LeaksApple Pro details some of the features that will be included in the latest operating system.

However, they also said that there are 3 types or types of iPhones that are said to be abandoned by iOS 16.

The three types of iPhone, namely:

  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE (first generation 2016)

It is stated that Apple does not provide the latest iOS support for older iPhones because the hardware used is outdated.

Also, these old phones don’t have enough performance or storage space to run the latest version of the operating system.

Keep in mind, this information is still just a rumor that has not been confirmed directly by Apple. Even so, the information submitted by LeaksApplePro is quite accurate.

An overview of the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE

Quoted from Kompas.com, (21/9/2021), a list of older iPhones that are 6 years old, such as the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE (first generation) can still get the iOS 15 system update.

Despite being a few months younger, the hardware capabilities of the iPhone SE are similar to those of the iPhone 6s. Both are equipped with the Apple A9 System-on-Chip (SoC).

When they were first introduced, the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE were still running iOS 9.

This means that the OS on these three phones has been updated for 6 generations.

Since it can still be updated to iOS 15, there are some new features that are not compatible with the iPhone 6s.

For example, the Visual Lookup feature is similar to the Google Lens feature, then the Live Text feature in photos, portrait mode in Face Time, and better Maps.

These features cannot be used on the iPhone 6s because it requires a more capable SoC, at least the Apple A12 Bionic chip.

Other features such as widgets will also be difficult to use on a phone with a 4.7-inch screen.

Features on iOS 16

In addition, a feature called “Quick Action” is said to be embedded in the latest iOS.

This feature is capable of sending shortcuts via system notifications that appear to be accessible via the lock screen.

There are also customization changes to the Files, Reminders, and Mail apps.

Apart from that, the LeaksApplePro team also said that there will be a feature called Apple Classical that might offer a subscription service to those who like their music to be a more formal tradition.
