iOS 15 likely won’t support iPhone 6s, SE (2016) & 3 older iPads

The rumor: iOS 15 won’t support a number of Apple’s older devices, according to iPhone Soft (not yet rated).


  • On the chopping block for iPhone: iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE (2016)
  • And for the iPads not getting iOS 15: iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2 and iPad 5

Our take: While it was impressive that iOS 14 supported the same devices as iOS 13, there is only so much that Apple can do with old hardware. Most of these devices saw 5+ years of support, which is respectable.
