At its annual WWDC 2023 conference, Apple has given the green light for the next generation of iOS, the heart and soul of its iconic iPhones. The tech giant confirmed that iOS 17, packed with unprecedented features, will land on a selection of iPhones later this year.
However, in every evolutionary step, there’s a need to leave some legacy behind. This is true for the iPhone 8 series, the groundbreaking iPhone X, and the original iPhone SE, which won’t receive the much-anticipated update. These models have faithfully run six iterations of iOS, a testament to Apple’s commitment to longevity in their devices, but now their journey with iOS ends at version 16.
On the brighter side, Apple users eager to experience the dynamism of iOS 17 will find solace in the compatibility of newer models. From the compact powerhouses in the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini, through to the cutting-edge technology of the iPhone 14 series, all are invited to this new party.
