Apple will hold its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California next month. The annual event is a chance that the company will give developers a talk on upcoming operating system updates and (sometimes) hardware.
Apple usually launches the week-long conference with an all-singing, all-dancing keynote, presenting a number of key consumer-friendly changes coming to the next iteration of iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS. That means we get a glimpse of iOS 13, macOS 10.15, tvOS 13 and watchOS 6.
But those who own an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPhone 5S or iPhone SE shouldn't get also is excited about what they see on stage during the event, since Apple is widely rumored to be supporting these aging phones with the next software update.
It is not really so much of a surprise to see the iPhone 5S again ̵
As such, it is a pity to see newer hardware, such as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, being dropped from future software update plans before reaching the same 6-year lifetime enjoyed by the Iphone 5s. According to ZDnet, the complete list of iPhone models that do not support iOS will be as follows …
If the report is correct, Apple has removed all devices with a four-inch display – potentially paving the way for design tweaks and features that utilize a larger screen. With a home screen promotion supposedly scheduled for the upcoming release of IOS, the choice can only support 4.7-inch screens and higher path paths for some interesting new user interface elements.
Unfortunately, not only is the iPhone boot, with older iPad models apparently being shown the door as well. More specifically, the iPad Mini 2 and the original iPad Air – not restarting the same name were launched earlier this year.
Apart from the newly developed home screen on the iPhone and iPad, iOS 13 is also rumored to bring a dark mode throughout the system, which inverts the ubiquitous, white backgrounds across the user interface, to black – saving precious battery life on iPhone models Equipped with OLED monitors, such as iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
 CarPlay is also the tip for getting a visual overhaul as well as the multi-tasking interface. A newly upgraded Find My iPhone app that merges existing Find My iPhone and Find My Friends apps, as well as Updates to Reminders and Mail apps, is also expected.
Apple markets WWDC 2019 with tagline: "Write code. Blow minds". The conference runs between June 3 and 7, 2019. As always, T3 will have all the latest news from San Jose as soon as it breaks, so stay up to date.
