The iPhone 12 series will obviously receive the latest iOS update, as well as the rumored low-cost iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9. The site also touched on the possibility that the Cupertino-based company may drop support for the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s depending on the next several months of development.
There’s more. The rumoured report on the site also released the iPad lineup which would receive the next iPadOS update. As per the report, not all iPadOS 13 devices will receive the next update. The report suggests that Apple will drop support for the iPad mini 4 and the iPad Air 2, introduced in 2015 and 2014, receptively. Both the devices are powered by the A8 and A8X chips.
