iOS 16 update compatible phone

If you are reading this article on an older iPhone, you may have to look for a successor next year. Because according to rumors, Apple will discontinue update support for some popular models in 2022. The update to iOS 16 should no longer find its way into the affected models.


  • Rumor has it that the iPhone 6s and iPhone SE (1st generation) will not receive any updates from 2022
  • The A9 and A9X chips, from which Apple is withdrawing support, are critical here
  • Some iPad models are also not included in the update cycle

A French tech blog claims to have received information about the devices that get the update to iOS 16. Apple’s next major operating system update is expected in October 2022 – at least if Apple maintains the update cycle of iOS 15 According to rumors, you will have problems in less than a year if you use one of the following iPhone models:

  • Apple iPhone 6s
  • Apple iPhone 6s Plus
  • Apple iPhone SE (1st generation)

The previous iPhone models were no longer included in the update to iOS 15. The 9to5Mac side assumes that the end of the update supply for the models mentioned is the end of support for the A9 SoC used. From this we can also deduce some iPad models that should therefore no longer receive an update.

Some iPad models are also likely to stay on iOS 15

Apple not only uses its powerful mobile processors in its own smartphones. For example, the latest iPad mini offers a similar performance to the latest iPad Pro and more computing power than the 9th generation iPad, which is equipped with Apple’s A13 Bionic. By excluding the processors of the A9 generation, the following iPad models would not have to get an update to iPadOS 16:

  • Apple iPad Mini 4
  • Apple iPad Air 2
  • Apple iPad 5
  • Apple iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9 from 2015

Before you start looking for a new iPhone or iPad: The information given is rumor. So they are to be viewed with reservation until the official listing of the software support on the part of Apple. We will probably find out about this at WWDC 2022. Apple’s developer conference traditionally takes place on July 7th. In addition, the end of support does not mean that the affected models will be unsafe.

Because as 9to5Mac explains, Apple has presented plans to guarantee security updates for a longer period of time. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus would still receive security patches for iOS 15 in the next few years.

Do you use one of the models mentioned? And how do you feel about the supposed end of support for older iPhones and iPads? Write me in the comments!
