Your iPhone 5 Is About to Become Obsolete


Apple’s pulling the cord on its iOS guillotine a little early this year. The next operating system update will reportedly only be available for the iPhone 5S and newer devices. That means if you have an iPhone 5 or an iPhone 5C, your expensive slab of aluminum and glass is about to become obsolete. (See the update below: you iPhone 5 might survive just a little longer.) 

Regardless, as the tipster points out, it’s widely understood that Apple will stop supporting the iPhone 5 and 5C with the release of iOS 11, so if you’re using one of these phones, you might want to get used to iOS 10 and brace for bugs in the not too distant future.

Update 4:35pm- A person familiar with the situation says that iOS 10.3.2 will support the iPhone 5 and 5C, corroborating our tipster’s claim.
