What Devices Will Upgrade To Ios 13
Apple can rightfully be considered the leader in the market for mobile devices by the duration of support, offering software updates for 4-5 years. The company intentionally tries to release updates of branded gadgets as long as possible, because this not only increases user loyalty, but also ensures their protection from all kinds of exploits and other evil spirits, not to mention the fact that it also simply prolongs the relevance of the device. The real record holder for the breadth of coverage was iOS 12, which extended the life of the already old iPhone 5s for another year. But with the release of iOS 14, it seems Apple will go even further.
iOS 14 will support a huge number of devices, including quite old ones

According to the French resource iPhonesoft, which has a reputation as a provider of reliable rumors and leaks, iOS 14 will support all iPhones that received iOS 13. This means that iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and iPhone SE, which, given their outdated hardware, in 2020 year was to go on a well-deserved rest and remain without an update, still get it. Why Apple decided to change the traditional practice of updating, there is no definite answer, but I have a rather folding version that fits perfectly with the existing conditions.

In my opinion, the reason why Cupertino extended the terms for updating the devices from the list above is because the company simply had no other choice. Well, see for yourself. In early 2017, Apple released the new iPad 5, which received the old case and hardware in 2015. Despite the fact that the A9 processor, which made up its hardware base, still shows its best side, has already grown old. However, it would be a complete disrespect for the consumer to stop supporting the device, which has just turned three years old, which means that it needs to be extended a little more.

And if so, then it would be wrong to not extend the support for the iPhone, to which Apple has always given priority, as well. Therefore, they took in Cupertino and decided to release an update also for smartphones. After all, the A9 processor today is able to stretch out, perhaps, any game or application from the App Store. The same Photoshop works even on the iPad 2017, which means that it still has nothing iron. just one year is still enough.

As you can see, the list of devices that will receive an upgrade to iOS 14 is quite extensive. But a year later, when iOS 15 is released, the situation will worsen even more. The fact is that Apple is driving itself into a trap, releasing new devices based on old processors, the potential of which is not unlimited. For example, last year the company released the iPad 7 (2019), equipping it with an A10 chip. It’s not that it was bad, but it was used back in 2016 and has since appeared in iPad 6 (2018). Therefore, even if Cupertino decides to extend its support until 2022, it turns out that a relatively new tablet will remain relevant for only three years against 4-5 years for the flagship iPhone models.
Well, it will be ok if se is updated again. In fact, he will be provided with another 2-3 years of relevance.
I think there are two reasons in the first place:
1. They earn more and more from services, so support for older devices is becoming increasingly important for them.
2. Even in Apple recognized that the 13th iOS was extremely unsuccessful. They promise that they will be corrected in the 14th. Therefore, it would be a little dishonest to leave someone on an unsuccessful version.
