Admittedly, Apple’s update cycle makes a fool of all Android manufacturers, Google itself being the one who manages to get a little closer with the Pixels. To give you a clearer idea, while most Android manufacturers update the OS for two years (sometimes not even that), Apple is capable of updating phones that are up to 6 years old.

Therefore, if you have an old iPhone, you will probably receive the next update: iOS 16. The bad news is that not all old equipment will be able to update . Recently, information was leaked on the models in which Apple is working to adapt its new version of the system, both for mobile phones and tablets. Do you want to know them?

I wish old Android phones got the same attention

It is very difficult to match the update cycle that Apple maintains. In the case of Android, we are talking about hundreds of mobiles from various manufacturers with different components and configurations. Therefore, it is not profitable for an Android manufacturer to update so many mobiles for a long time. Simply, the expense that it would represent makes it unfeasible.

But … this does not mean that it is impossible. Currently, Samsung has been working to extend the update cycle of its models, at least in the high-end. And more importantly, Google has worked hard on its own line of mobiles (Pixel 6) and now with its own chips, the Tensor, it could be able to mimic Apple’s update cycle in no time.
