One of the benefits of owning an iPhone is the exceptional support you get from Apple. Software updates, in particular, are typically delivered for at least five years after an iPhone model goes on sale — arguably an industry-leading figure.
Unfortunately, there comes a time when an iPhone can no longer handle the latest iOS version. With today’s announcement at WWDC, many people must be wondering: Will my iPhone get iOS 16?
The answer to the question, of course, depends on which iPhone model you have. Here is the official iOS compatibility information provided by Apple itself:
Which iPhones will get the iOS 16 update?
- All iPhone 13 models
- All iPhone 12 models
- All iPhone 11 models
- iPhone XS and XS Max
- iPhone X
- iPhone XR
- iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
- iPhone SE 2020
- iPhone SE 2022
This is the official list of iPhones that are compatible with iOS 16, provided by Apple. The two oldest iPhone models are the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Both were released in 2017 and it’s cool to see even a 5 year old iPhone getting the latest software from Apple.
