According to revelations made in a French publication, iOS 13 will take out several generations of iPhone from the list of supported devices.
At the launch of iOS 12, Apple announced compatibility with all the devices that could run the previous version of iOS 11. This time, it seems that the iOS 13 upgrade comes with increased demands on processing power and memory resources, iPhone models launched until 2014 are not properly equipped.
Thus, the iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus series will no longer be found on the list of iOS 13 compatible devices.
If the rumors are confirmed, a large number of iPhone users will be left without access to the latest version of iOS, expected to launch in September.
And there are two exclusions from the tablet range – the iPad Mini 2 and iPad Air, launched in 2013. For the official list of compatible devices, we can still wait until June 3rd to see the iOS 13 release at the WWDC conference.
