One of the big conflicts around technology is updates. Specifically, when from one moment to the next your device becomes outdated because the operating system has been updated.
The company based in Cupertino, California (USA) launches a new iPhone year after year, at a higher price each year. In this way, they get millions of users around the world to buy the new device, even though last year they would have chosen to buy another one.
However, it is no longer only with the iPhone that Apple convinces users to renew their terminal, but another of the launches they make each year is in the software, which in turn is another reason for obsolescence . of iPhones.
Although iOS 17 was released a few months before the iPhone 15 , it was announced at the time that several older iPhone models would not be compatible with this operating system. As a result, these devices would lose essential functions, including cybersecurity tools. For this reason, upgrading to a newer phone was suggested, with the iPhone 11 being the oldest model compatible with iOS 17.
Which are the iPhones that stop updating in 2024
Currently, although it is still a few months away, Apple is in the process of developing iOS 18, scheduled for release in 2024. This implies that, once again, certain models of the company’s devices will become incompatible with the new operating system, which will result in the discontinuation of updates for these devices.
