The American company “Apple” issued a warning to iPhone users, as it prepares to release its new system, “iOS 17”.
30 day deadline
The British newspaper "Metro" said:
If you own an iPhone 8 or X, it's time to ditch them, because they won't support the upcoming iOS 17 update.
These two phones were released in 2017, and Apple usually stops supporting older iPhone models after six years.
iPhone 8 and iPhone X owners will not be able to get the latest software or feature updates.
They will also miss out on all new security updates, which makes phones more vulnerable to threats like malware and viruses.
iOS 17 is expected to be released in mid-September 2023, which means that users have a period of about 30 days.
The replacement value in good condition for the iPhone X is currently about $190, the iPhone 8 is $90 and the iPhone 8 Plus is $152.
iPhone phones will support the new system
iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.
iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
