Why some iPhone users can not download iOS 17

iPhone users must know that iOS 17 will only be available for iPhones released after 2017 therefore, models launched before the mentioned year will not be compatible with the new OS update. Users with iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X and other previous models will not get the iOS 17 update and they will run on iOS 15 or iOS 16 update only.

These smartphones will also not receive any new iOS 17 features or updates provided by Apple. They will, however, be able to use the iPhone properly and without problem. Additionally, iPhones that do not receive OS updates will receive frequent security updates.

If you want to explore the iOS 17 new features, then pre-order the new iPhone 15 models. The latest Apple iPhone was launched this month with new upgrades and it will also come with the pre-installed iOS 17 update. The sale of the iPhone 15 lineup will begin on September 22, 2023.
