With the release of iOS 17, three iPhone models will no longer be compatible with Apple’s latest mobile operating system. These models are the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. Additionally, since the release of iOS 16 last year, Apple has stopped providing feature upgrades for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 series. However, these older models can still run iOS 15.

Compatibility List Exclusions

If your iPhone is not listed above, it won’t support iOS 17, and you won’t receive a notification to download the newest software. For example, iPhone X and iPhone 8 can only use iOS 16 as the latest software version.

Even though older iPhones won’t support the latest iOS version or receive new features, they should still function properly for a while. They will also continue to receive security updates for iOS 16. Apple recently released the latest security update for iOS 15 in July 2023 and will continue to provide iOS 16 security updates for the foreseeable future.

So, if you’re eagerly anticipating the exciting features of iOS 17, make sure to check if your iPhone is on the compatibility list. If not, you might want to consider upgrading to one of the newer iPhone models to enjoy all the benefits of Apple’s latest mobile operating system.
