Though it's still a couple of days away, leaks and rumors have already taken over the internet. While the new iOS update is likely to bring a bunch of new exciting features, It is expected to drop support from a few older iPhone models. However, anything would be confirmed only after its launch. Till then you can check out the list of iPhone models that are likely to get iOS 16 support here.

iOS 16 supported iPhones

Apple tries to support most of the iPhone models in every new iOS update but there are a few older models every year that couldn't make it to the list. iOS 15 which was released in 2015 had dropped support from the iPhones older than iPhone 6S. Apple drops iOS update support from older models due to the hardware limitations of the camera, or the chip inside certain iPhone models. Now an early leak suggests that the iPhone 6S along with the iPhone 6S Plus and original iPhone SE won't get iOS 16. This means the new iOS update will bring everything from the iPhone 7 onwards i.e, iPhone 7 series, iPhone 8 series, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13, iPhone SE 3 and others.
