According to the latest report, the California-based Cupertino tech giant will stop supporting the iPhone 6s range and original iPhone SE after rolling out iOS 15, which is expected to arrive this autumn.
The report was issued by the French site iPhoneSoft (via 9to5Mac). The report assures the set of 2015 and 2016 iPhones are on the chopping block because the iPhone manufacturer reduces the number of devices entitled to get the latest updates.
The website further stated that they got the information from a “developer friend”. And seemed to indicate it is handsets with the A9 processor, which are being progressively eliminated. Moreover, the latest and most advanced iPhones now come with an A14 Bionic processor.

The things that make the iPhone 6s an exceptional handset are its enhanced 12-megapixel camera, with a better Touch ID sensor. Although the device’s design was the same as the iPhone 6, it has enhanced sustainability over complaints the former generation was simple to bend. Furthermore, it is still quite a famous smartphone, especially on the secondary market. The reason behind its popularity is, it still receives iOS updates yearly.
Now talking about the iPhone SE, which was rolled out in March 2016. And saw a return to a smaller form factor for those looking for a pocket-sized handset. Extremely famous was the handset; Apple followers demanded a sequel until the iPhone SE 2 ultimately reached last spring.
