iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 series will be missing out on iOS 14 support this year.
iOS 14 and other Apple operating systems have been unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2020. These new updates not only bring in new features and some tweaks in the design but also focus on providing smooth software support for compatible devices.
Apple is known for offering software support to its older iPhones. The iPhone-maker has set a standard of releasing iOS 12.4.7 in May 2020 to the likes of iPhone 5s launched in 2013.
This year too, Apple will provide support for much older iPhones, even the ones launched in September 2015. The company has confirmed that the iPhone 6s and newer will get the iOS 14 update in the winter season.
