iOS 11 Is Coming - Will Your Device Become Obsolete?by

Technology certainly has a habit of marching onwards – and Apple, of course, are at the forefront of making sure that their devices and operating systems are ready to provide users with the best possible experience and tight enough security for them to safely use their products anywhere in the world, and for any purpose. Anyone who owns an Apple product will likely already be well aware that it needs updating a fair amount – and while several patches and updates may occur during any given run of one particular version of iOS, the release of an entirely new update is usually regarded as something of an event in and of itself. iOS 11 – the latest to hit iPads, iPhones and more – will launch worldwide this summer, and with it, a number of older devices could be left behind in the sand. Therefore, it’s worth bearing in mind whether or not your device and/or apps could face obsolescence.

It’s thought that iOS 11 will redesign much of the interface and will bring about an entirely new App Store – and that older devices operating on the previous 32-bit engine will no longer receive security updates or otherwise. A number of popular apps, too, may no longer be compatible with the updated operating system – and many that are downloaded anew in recent weeks have come with warnings to suggest that certain games and programs may no longer be supported once the new system is rolled out.

Users of iPhone 5 and 5C, along with those who own pre-2013 iPads, may find that Apple will no longer roll out updates for their hardware once this summer’s new update comes along. This means that it may be time to consider an upgrade – or to see whether or not you can continue running your devices without such support. While it isn’t advisable to run any devices without security support where possible, it may be likely that many users continue to use their phones and tablets without opting to purchase a newer model.

Devices just four years old – at youngest – are facing obsolescence with Apple’s latest update. This may not seem like a long time to some, but technology really has advanced in this period – and with Apple facing a stronger, more competitive market than ever, and in the face of criticism over the similar nature of their most recent iPhone range, it’s not surprising that the firm are opting for a completely new approach this summer.
