iOS 17 will be introduced by Apple with the arrival of the new iPhone 15 series, but some of the company’s older models will not receive the update, which will contain new features and improvements. Which iPhone models will not get the iOS 17 update? Below you will learn this.
Apple will release a beta version of iOS 17 in June this year, as it does every year. The industry giant will discuss future improvements at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
The company is showing off the new features at this conference while providing beta access for supported devices.
On the other hand, with the release of iOS 17, Apple will stop supporting some older iPhone models. The company, which has a history of offering long software support for its products, will stop offering software support for devices equipped with the A11 Bionic chipset. iPhone models that use the A11 Bionic chip will not receive iOS 17: These are: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
Bloomberg Apple expert Mark Gurman said that it would be wrong to expect any significant changes in the new iOS 17 because, according to Gurman, the tech giant is working hard and concentrating a lot on virtual reality this year.
Apple Pay Later is the most anticipated feature that will be present in iOS 17. Every purchase made through Apple Pay Later will be spread over four installments, with a six-week repayment period without accruing interest. Thus, iPhone users will get a secure and more convenient mechanism for deferred payments. End-to-end encryption for iMessage is another feature expected to arrive in the upcoming iOS release.
