These are the iPhone models that won't get support for iOS 13

Apple's annual developer event, WWDC 2019, is upon us. This time around, we expect to see the launch of the first beta release for iOS 13. Apple is reportedly taking a tough decision for older iPhone users this year. It is expected to drop support for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, and all older models, with iOS 13. iOS 13 will also not support iPad Mini 2 and iPad Air.

This may come as a shocker especially for the Indian market, where the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE are the top-selling variants. Both of them are also currently made in India, giving them the additional price cut benefit.

This decision is contrary to what Apple did with iOS 12 a year back. That update supported even older models like iPhone 5S, mostly because of the optimisations it offered.

It also hints towards Apple's decision to push the newer iPhone variants, as more and more customers are extending their refresh cycles because of lack of innovation in the global smartphone market. Shelving the older models could act as a motivator for users who fear obseletion to buy the newer models.
