If you have an iPhone 6s or original iPhone SE, it may be time to consider upgrading to a newer device. There have been rumors swirling for a while that Apple was planning on dropping support for these devices with the release of iOS 15, and now there are some reports backing this up.
iPhoneSoft, a French publication, recently shared a list of Apple devices that will host iOS 15 beta in June and the iPhone 6s and SE are both missing from the list. Experts are guessing this means that Apple is dropping support for iPhones with A9 chips and earlier. The iPhone 6s was released in September 2015 and the iPhone SE came out in March 2016, which means there are still a lot of these devices floating around out there—and their owners are not likely to be pleased about their phones being on track for planned obsolescence.
