Nonsense, but the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 are still being updated. When will it end?

Fortunately, not very soon. There are reasons.
Immediately after the release of iOS 13, when it became known that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 are “in flight,” we predicted a further update to smartphones. And so it happened. iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 are still, so many months after the completion of official support, receive updates that can not but rejoice users. How long it will be going on?
How long will the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 be updated?
It is understandable why Apple continues to regularly update iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. The company brings bug fixes to smartphones, fixes the latest critical bugs, and completes optimization for a reason. Apple does this because millions of people still use the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6.
There are no official data on the number of active iPhone 5s and iPhone 6, Apple does not publish this. But there are unofficial statistics. According to data compiled by David Smith, the developer of the Audiobooks app series, about 2% of users remain on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. And this is still a very rough calculation.
Do you think that 2% is not enough? In the world right now there are about a billion (!) Active iPhones, Apple said this at the end of the year. Thus, about 20 million users remain among the legendary smartphones iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. Again, these statistics are unofficial – they can be either more or less. However, given the efforts of Apple, we can confidently assume that there are still more.
Apple is well aware of those who still remain on these older models. These are those people who do not want or are not able to purchase a new iPhone model. Due to the high cost of the new iPhone, it is highly likely that some of them will go to the camp of users of Android smartphones, having bought some modern, but cheap model of Huawei, Samsung or Xiaomi.
Of course, Apple does not want this. So the company is showing them – see how long your old iPhones get updates? The same iPhone 5s will soon receive new firmware for seven whole years! A phenomenal indicator, unattainable for any Android-smartphone, from among those that live to such a venerable age.
So, how much longer will Apple update the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6? This will happen until the number of users of these smartphones is reduced to a minimum. This can happen within a year, thanks to the efforts of Apple. Recall that the upcoming iPhone SE 2020 smartphone, which will be the cheapest in the Apple lineup, is aimed precisely at the owners of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6/6 Plus.
We bet that over the year the number of iPhone 5s / 6 users will noticeably decrease and smartphone updates will stop. At least as frequent updates as they are currently happening.
