A dubious rumor claims that iOS 13 would not be compatible with the iPhone 5s, 6, 6s and SE — 2022

There are still almost 6 months left for Apple to present us iOS 13 at WWDC 2019 however we have already had news of yourpresence on the net. Also some media are launched to give their forecasts about what this new version of the iPhone, iPad and iPod system will be. Some like the Israeli The Verifier they assure that This version would leave several teams that did update to iOS 12 on the way. In this post we tell you all the details of this rumor that seems quite unlikely.

The iPhone 7 would be the oldest device to be updated to iOS 13 according to dubious information

The Verifier states that the devices compatible with iOS 13 would be the iPhone 7/7 Plus, 8/8 Plus, X, XS/XS Max and XR. Therefore, other older devices such as iPhone 5s, 6/6 Plus, 6s/6s Plus and the SE would be left out of the new update despite having been updated to iOS 12 last year. Also iPod touch 6th generation and all iPad mini and Air they would no longer be updated to iOS 13.

This information is quite strange due to several factors. The first of them is that the Israeli media does not cite what its sources are or their bases to be able to affirm this information. Another reason why this move by Apple would be strange is that would totally break the update lines which has been maintained in recent years.

The iPhone 5s, for example, came with iOS 7, which was revolutionary since it was the famous operating system that completely changed the design of the interface. After this terminal has been updated until reaching iOS 12. This means that 5 years then the terminal has continued to update. Well, if the aforementioned rumor is true, it would be very rare for a terminal like the 5s to have been updated for so long and others like the 6s to 'only' be updated for 3 years.

It should be noted that there is a reason why the iPhone 5s and its processors have been able to support new versions is thanks to the 64 bit processor that they incorporate. Logically this will not make them eternal but yes it gives them a greater margin of update than the one that could have older devices like the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4s.

It would also be risky for Apple to carry out a maneuver like this considering that they have always tried to differentiate themselves from the competition with features such as the update period of their devices.

We do not know if this will finally become a reality, the personal commitment fromThe bitten appleis that in case of 'disappearing' a generation in iOS 13 will be that of the iPhone 5s and at most that of the iPhone 6 but we believe that devices like the iPhone 6s and even the SE still have time to update to new versions. be that as it may We will have to wait for the next Apple developer conference to find out.

Do you think this rumor will end up being true? Which devices do you think will get updated to iOS 13? Leave your opinion in the comments.
