Apple Embarrasses Google and Samsung - Old iPhones Get Updates

Apple has announced that it will upgrade its iOS system to version 14 for 16 device models. Updates will be available for smartphones even from 2015 - e.g. iPhone 6S.

Apple continues to support its older products.

At WWDC 2020, Apple announced the iOS update to version 14 for a large group of devices. Among them we can find smartphones from 2015 (iPhone 6S /6S Plus). It is worth noting that the update will also be available for the original version of iPhone SE (first generation) despite the recent release of its newer model.

List of devices that will receive iOS 14

  1. iPhone 11
  2. iPhone 11 Pro
  3. iPhone 11 Pro Max
  4. iPhone Xs
  5. iPhone Xs Max
  6. iPhone Xr
  7. iPhone X
  8. iPhone 8
  9. iPhone 8 Plus
  10. iPhone 7
  11. iPhone 7 Plus
  12. iPhone 6s
  13. iPhone 6s Plus
  14. iPhone SE (1st generation)
  15. iPhone SE (2nd generation)
  16. iPod touch (7th generation)

In the case of smartphones running on the system from Google, we'd better give up on a smartphone released in 2015 receiving and official update to Android version 11. Apple has been supporting its devices OS-wise for much longer than Google. With smartphones running on Android, we can't expect a device from 2015 to get an official update to Android version 11. Apple also provides updates in a much shorter time - with Android, users often having to wait really long.

iOS 14 will offer several new solutions such as CarKey, a feature that enables us to open selected car models with a smartphone. In addition, we will see changes in Maps, the Messages application and the well-known voice assistant Siri. Update will significantly affect the appearance of the home screen on smartphones, for example by introducing widgets.

The update will be officially released within the next few months. The release date is scheduled for September this year. Eager users will be able to take part in the development of the system by participating in beta-tests, which should start next month.
