These Apple iPhones and iPads may not get iOS 17 software update
Apple has announced that it will host its annual developer conference in June. At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event, the Cupertino-based company is expected to announce iOS17 software update along with other gadget launches.
As per a report by MacRumours, Apple may drop the iOS 17 update for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The report cites a source which says that first-generation iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch, or the fifth-generation iPad may also not get the update.
Why, you must be wondering? Simple reason is that these devices are now years old. The listed devices launched between 2015 to 2017.
Meanwhile, Apple iOS 17 is rumoured to come with new features like support for sideloading of app and third-party apps. The iPhone maker is also expected to offer support for multiple displays for carPlay, add widgets and more.
Obvious to say but iOS 17 is also rumoured to offer increased efficiency and stability on iPhones. However, the software update may not bring major visual changes to the iPhoens.
