iOS 13: Will Apple Stop Supporting Older Devices?

The soon-to-hit-the-market iOS 13 comes with big promises for your iOS device, and it might just be enough to solve the sales problems from the past.

You’re probably wondering about features. We’re here to tell you that you’ll get basically everything that iOS 12 and iOS 12.2 didn’t get – we’re talking about stability. This means app and user interface redesigns.

The rumors didn’t get enough time to settle in yet, we’ve heard most of the rumors from last year. But there are some others that are new, and we are here to present you those.

When is the release date?

Based on what we’ve seen in the past, on the 3rd of June, WWDC 2019 will take place. The iOS 13 for beta users will be launched for the paid Apple Developers, probably a few days after the WWDC. Then, the public beta will launch for all the other testers. This is a more refined version, that won’t include all the features that will appear in the final version of the operating system.  In September, the new operating system may come, together with the new 2019 iPhones.


Apple still continues to support the iPhone 5S, which is the first phone to come with a 64-bit chipset. This chipset has seen six versions of iOS.

The coming of iOS 13 might mean that Apple will stop supporting older devices. The oldest from the list might be iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and iPod Touch.

Apple might also require the devices to have an A8 chipset or even newer in order to get iOS 13. However, it’s in Apple’s best interest to upgrade your hardware, too. We’ve all heard of the battery replacement service from 2018.
