If you own an iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE 2016, iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad 5, iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9 inches (2015), this is bad news for you. Kindly read!

The iOS 16 seems to have ended support for the listed iPhone versions above when it comes to upgrading to the latest version. This means that iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, or the iPhone SE 2016 (first-generation iPhones) owners will have to upgrade to newer devices that are compatible with iOS 16.

According to iPhonesoft.fr, up to 8 iPhone and iPad devices will not be compatible with iOS 16.
