Is my iPhone compatible with iOS 15This is an important question for all iPhone owners that haven’t recently upgraded to a newer model. Almost every time a new iOS is released, less iPhones are supported, because more features require additional resources and very old iPhone models simply don’t have the hardware to cope with the changes.

What about iOS 15? Which iPhone models are supported? We’ll find out for sure on June 7, during the WWDC 21 keynote. However, Apple has set a pattern in recent years and this makes it easy to predict which iPhone model will be dropped from the compatibility list!
