    I saw this article too. It’s pretty sad. For us people who have a iPhone 6 or less.

    It’s about time. Considering that the iPhone 6 is turning 5 years old. In technology terms, that’s ancient.

    My toaster oven doesn’t even last that long. Let’s be honest.

    It’s not really that old considering that I got mine brand new in 2018 at Christmas. And also it just got iOS 12.3.

    A lot of people are still sporting a 5S, SE, or 6 and they are still quite capable phones.

    In my opinion the 6 is still a good phone. I don’t see why ios13 would not be supported.

    The most likely reason why the iPhone 6 will not receive iOS 13 is that the hardware will not support the features iOS 13 offers.
