In a week marked by the problems of Android updates , a data emerges that suggests that Manzana He plans to include the Iphone 5s as a compatible model of the next big update of the platform. We refer to i OS 12 , a firmware that would reach a phone with six years in the market, something unheard of in the sector.

During the last years, each new version of iOS it was preceded by bad news for some of the users of the Apple platform. And is that the road was always left a model, the oldest by the tail. The last victim of iOS 11 was the iPhone 5 , in addition to the “experiment” in the form of Iphone 5c . By extension, the arrival of iOS 12 should end with support for the iPhone 5s. However, there are indications that Apple will create a new precedent.

iPhone 5s with iOS 12

Apple would have already started the development of iOS 12, as expected. However, what we did not expect is that, through a compilation of WebKit , the name of the iPhone 5s has been detected in the code.

A hint which suggests that Apple seeks to increase the compatibility of its operating system with the largest number of iPhones possible, despite the longevity of some of these. Not in vain, the company already advanced months ago that with iOS 12 would focus more on the optimization that in introducing an outstanding volume of novelties in order to avoid the exponential increase in errors and instability found in the last large iOS updates .

Updates for a model with six years

If it finally happens and the iPhone 5s receives the update with iOS 12 It will be a feat. And is that when the new update is released, it will be six years since the iPhone 5s was put on sale. A milestone in a market in which, especially on the Android platform, the updates have become a problem due to its fast “programmed” obsolescence.

Of course, there is no certainty that the model can support all the functions integrated in the future iOS 12 version. However, the inclusion of the Apple A7 processor in the iPhone 5s could well be the determining factor given that it was the first that the Americans launched with 64 bit architecture .
