Apple said that a series of devices from iPhone X and earlier will not be supported to upgrade to the latest operating system iOS 17.
As usual, after the launch of the new generation operating systems iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, Apple also announced a series of devices that no longer receive software updates, which are models launched before November 11.
Accordingly, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X will not be able to install iOS 17. Similarly, older iPad versions such as the 5th generation iPad mini, the first generation iPad Pro were not upgraded to iPadOS 17. Even if the new operating system is not installed, these devices will still be updated with important security patches.

Last year, when launching iOS 16, iPadOS 16, Apple also listed a series of devices that are no longer supported, notably the iPhone 7. The company was reacted by many users when the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus could not install iOS 16, causing them to buy new devices. At the time, some developers and users said the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus configurations were fully responsive to the new operating system, but Apple ignored them.
Ios 17 were introduced at WWDC’s 2023 Worldwide Developer Conference, taking place June 5-9 in California. This year, Apple spent much of the event describing the many changes in the operating system for the iPhone. However, most of these changes focus on improving an existing feature rather than creating an entirely new one.
The beta version of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 for software developers launched today and will then expand to users in July, before the official launch in September alongside the iPhone 7 series.
