Reporting Mac Rumors, Apple has decided not to release iOS 16 for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have been criticized. Apple’s iOS 16 includes changes to the lock screen and additional iMessage features such as deleting and restoring messages that improve the user experience of iPhone phones.

Unfortunately, many of the new features of iOS 16 are not available for some older phones in the iPhone family. The most newsworthy issue is that, contrary to initial expectations and even contrary to the claims of whistleblowers, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus do not support iOS 16.

Apple launched iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in 2016. The iPhone 7 Plus was the first Apple phone to use a dual camera, and Apple changed the home button mechanism for the first time in these phones, replacing it with a haptic feedback model. Also, the iPhone 7 was the end of the presence of the headphone jack in the phones of the iPhone family; Therefore, the mentioned phones have a special place in the iPhone family.

Apple released iOS 15 last year for old phones like Released iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The end of support for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with the release of iOS 16 was not a long-awaited event; But we were surprised when Apple announced that this operating system will be released for iPhone 8 and newer models.

A10 Fusion, is not powerful enough to run iOS 16 and its various features well; But this argument doesn’t seem very correct.

6th and 7th generation iPads, both of which are equipped with the same A10 Fusion processor, will receive iPadOS 16 operating system. Also, the fifth generation iPad with a weaker processor (A9) can also run the new version of iPadOS. iOS and iPadOS are two separate operating systems; But they generally have similar capabilities and a common technology has been used for their development.

  • iOS 16 introduced with new features for iPhone 8 and later
  • Apple releases iOS 16 and macOS Ventura security updates independently of the new operating system version
  • Apple iPhone 7 Plus Review

In theory, Apple could decide to release iOS 16 for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and remove some of its features. iPhone 7 owners could definitely do without some of the new features. Not providing a number of new iOS features for older iPhones is not a new issue; Because Apple has been limiting some features to newer models for years to encourage users to replace their iPhones with newer models. For example, Face ID with a mask doesn’t even work on the iPhone 11 and only works for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 . Some features of iOS 16 are exclusive to iPhones equipped with A12 Bionic processor and newer models.

MacRumors said last month that due to the iPhone 7 Plus benefiting from more RAM, this phone may receive iOS 16 and software support for the iPhone 7 will end. Apple has probably decided to end support for both phones in order to avoid user confusion.

Apple iOS 16, in addition to the redesign of the lock screen, has new features such as Rapid Security Response to It is possible to install security updates independently of the operating system. The new version of iOS also has features such as Safety Check and makes it possible to use Face ID in landscape mode.
