iOS 15

Everyone knows that the biggest difference between smart phones and feature phones is that smart phones can be upgraded and updated to get the latest functional experience. Now the smart phone operating system is the world of Apple’s iOS system and Google’s Android system, especially Apple’s iOS system is known for its smoothness and safety. .

iOS 15

When it comes to system support for old mobile phones, Apple may say that it is the second child, but no one dares to call it the boss. Usually an Apple mobile phone and tablet computer can get at least four years of system support. Like the iPhone 6S many years ago, it can now be updated to iOS 14. Apple even provides a small upgrade to iOS 12 for older devices.

However, it is impossible for a device to update the system endlessly. For example, the old iPhone 5 cannot support iOS 14. Therefore, when Apple continues to launch iOS 15 this year, a batch of Apple devices cannot be upgraded to this version. Basically these Tablets and mobile phones are obsolete.

I believe that there are fans who have been following Mingmei Infinite to this day. It should be clear that after iOS 14 was released in mid-September 2020, Apple has intentionally or unintentionally disclosed to the industry that it will make major updates and changes in iOS 15, which requires ownership. iPhone users are prepared, because it is very likely that the update will be stopped due to not supporting iOS 15. Therefore, Mingmei Wuxian looked for some information and made some conclusions to see which iPhone models are supported by iOS 15. If your model is not in the list, it is recommended to replace or buy a new iPhone as soon as possible.


It’s not that iOS 14 hasn’t been released yet, but iOS 15 has new news. In accordance with Apple’s practice of changing every year in the past, the new iOS 15 system will be released at the WWDC conference in June this year. According to a report from the French website iPhoneSoft, the latest iOS 15 system will no longer support upgrades to devices with A9 processors such as the iPhone 6s series and the first-generation iPhone SE series.

Considering that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are both models released in 2015, they have a history of more than 5 years. The first-generation iPhone SE was a model released in the spring of 2016, and it has been nearly five years since it did not support the update of iOS 15 seems to be expected.

The iPhone 6S series can be regarded as a classic. The most well-known version of this series was the rose gold color version. This version immediately became the target of reference and plagiarism from the Android camp, and various Android brands launched models with similar color schemes. What’s interesting is that since the iPhone 6S series, Apple has lost its advantage in color matching, and the Android camp has begun to lead in color matching. For example: the most famous gradient colors, the mirror of the sky, and AG glass craftsmanship, etc. Of course, Apple is not completely abandoned for models over five years old. Only if the major version of iOS is not updated, security patches will still be issued.

As for iPad, iPadOS 15 may give up support for iPad mini 4 (2015), iPad Air 2 (2014) and iPad 5 (2017) because these devices are equipped with A8, A8X and A9 chips, respectively.

iPhone 6

In addition, iOS 15 will run on iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and all newly released iPhones or compatible with A10 chip devices. In addition, the seventh-generation iPod touch uses A10 chip and can also run iOS 15.

Previously, when the ios 13 system was updated, models equipped with the A8 processor iphone 6, iphone6p, iphone 6, and iphone 5s were eliminated.

So Mingmei infinitely summarizes the list of iOS 15 upgrade models: iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone SE 2020, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS , IPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7.

List of iPadOS 15 upgraded models: iPad Pro 2021 (5G), 12.9-inch iPad Pro (since 2015), 10.5-inch iPad Pro, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, 11-inch iPad Pro (since 2018), iPad Air 3 iPad Air 4, iPad 6, iPad 7, iPad 8, iPad Mini 5, etc.

In addition, it is worth mentioning today that according to previous news, the new iOS 15 will support functions such as split screen, off-screen display, and replacement of voice assistants.

So today, Mingmei Wuxian will also stop by and share it with the fans who follow me.

It is reported that this iOS 15 system will also bring us a more comprehensive Siri. This time siri will also have the ability to answer continuously, and will become more intelligent, and the tone of voice will be like a normal life transition. This is that Apple will continue to update its map function. The iPhone in hand may be even better in navigation. Of course, some domestic map software is also very good. For the built-in map function of the iPhone, I believe that domestic users are basically It is not used on it.

In addition, the iOS 15 system will also increase the voice translation function this time. The emui 11 system that Huawei launched some time ago adds a function that can translate in real time while watching movies, which is also loved by many netizens. This is an iOS bug that will also bring a special voice translation function. When you hear the voice, it will translate at the same time. Of course, I don’t know how effective it is. I believe Apple will optimize it well, otherwise it will not be launched. , And more importantly, IOS 15 will support the mutual translation of seven languages ​​from the beginning, which is very convenient for some people to go abroad.

In addition, this time there will be a smart recommendation function. This function can be said that the current domestic Android customization system has already existed. It is a bit similar to the AI ​​scene of the domestic mobile phone system. It can recommend you according to your preferences. Suitable music, clothes, transportation, etc. However, after these functions are launched by Apple, it is very likely that third-party apps on mobile phones will be prohibited for these functions. Of course, this means that Apple will have more privacy for users, and privacy should also be Will become a problem that many consumers worry about.

Finally, as usual, Apple will release the iOS 15 system at WWDC in the middle of this year, and will launch the official version in September.

In the end, what Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: Honestly speaking, for Apple, it is an invincible brand in the industry that it can be able to update the latest system after five years of release. You can count the fact that each brand in the Android camp can support the new system for three years is considered a conscience. Even some models of some brands have abandoned security patches for two years. This has happened a few days ago, so I won’t name them here, so as not to say which brand is black. Apple’s five-year-old model is still being updated. That’s because the iPhone itself does not play the mobile phone tactics, and the highly unified update of iOS is simpler than the Android camp. But the Android camp is different. Each brand releases too many models every year, and each model is based on different hardware. It is indeed much more difficult to update later.

There is only so much news about iOS 15 from Mingmei Wuxue. The specific content has to wait for official news, let us look forward to it!
