According to the French edition of iPhoneSoft, citing insiders, it is assumed that Apple plans to drop support for iOS 15 in the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, the first generation iPhone SE, as well as some iPad models.

It is likely that Apple is planning to drop support for iPhones with A9 and earlier chips. While this may not seem like a big deal to many users in 2021, the iPhone 6s remains a hugely popular aftermarket smartphone.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were launched in September 2015, and the iPhone SE was launched in March 2016. These devices have been very popular and have received over four years of Apple software updates.
