No more software support for older Apple devices in iOS 17?

As iOS 17 approaches, it appears that support for earlier Apple devices will disappear. Apple has built a reputation for providing long-term software support for its devices, making its products more future-proof compared to other smartphones. However, even iPhones eventually lose software support, including the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, according to a recent leak


MacRumors, which has a good track record of accurately predicting upcoming software updates, reported the news. Similarly, some iPads are also on the chopping block, including the first-generation 12.9” iPad Pro, the first-generation 9.7” iPad Pro, and the fifth-generation vanilla iPad, which were all released between 2015 and 2017.

It is worth noting that iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 are expected to be launched at WWDC 2023, together with Apple’s AR/VR headset. It is possible that Apple will continue to implement more sophisticated multitasking features to make its high-end ‘Pro’ iPads even more appealing to customers.

Apple enthusiasts should take note of this news and plan accordingly, especially if they rely on their iPhones or iPads for their daily activities. Additionally, it will be interesting to see what features Apple will introduce with iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, and how they will be received by the public.
