Apple would like to support all devices that also run iOS 13 with iOS 14. That’s what an Israeli rumor site claims. That happened before, when iOS 12 could run on all devices that had iOS 11.
The iPhone 6s from 2015 and iPhone SE from 2016 would receive support for another year, reports The Verifier. The site previously correctly reported that Apple would be dropping support for the iPhone 5s and 6 with iOS 13, but otherwise has a mixed track record of Apple rumors.
If the rumor is true, the iPhone 6s would be the first iPhone to support six years of iOS upgrades. Older devices that no longer receive iOS upgrades will occasionally receive updates. For example, iOS 12.4.7 recently came out with bug fixes along with iOS 13.5 for newer devices. Furthermore, with an upgrade, Apple does not always support all functions of iOS in every device.
Apple has not responded to the rumor. The manufacturer will hold its virtual version of WWDC developer conference in three weeks, where it will likely announce new versions of its operating systems.
