Which devices support iOS 16?

As we head towards the WWDC 2022 event, iOS geeks are eager to test the upcoming iOS 16 beta update. With the latest iOS 15 and iOS 14 updates, Apple has changed a lot for iPhone users as the company has added Live Text, Screen Share, App customization and more fruitful features. However, the tech giant is also dropping the old iPhone model to receive the new iOS update. So the main question of this year is which iPhones will support the iOS 16 update.

Last year, Apple excluded support for iPhone 6 from the iOS 15 update. However, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus users were lucky enough to get the new iOS 15 update. Since Apple has removed support for iPhone 6 from iOS 15, people are assuming that Apple will remove iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus from support for iOS 16 updates. If you have a question like “can iPhone 6S get iOS 16?” or “will the iPhone 7 get iOS 16?” or something else, we have listed every iPhone that is compatible with iOS 16 update.
