The question of supporting old Apple devices becomes especially relevant when several months remain before the release of the new version of the operating system.
Many readers ask us: will iOS 13 work on the same devices as iOS 12? So far it all comes down to the fact that the list of supported devices will still be smaller. A full list of supported iOS 13 devices can be found below. As you can see, there was no space for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and the fourth-generation iPad, as is the case with iOS 12. All devices that are running iOS 11, at one time were able to upgrade to iOS 12. But with iOS 13 everything will be different

With the update, Apple plans to improve the performance of old devices. Therefore, applications run 40% faster, the keyboard works 50% faster, the camera - 70% faster. And all this on older devices. The company has significantly worked on optimization, so even older processors will be able to deliver maximum performance.
Apple tends to keep old devices as long as possible. Both iOS 12 and iOS 11 offered support for iPhone 5s and newer, iPad mini 2 and newer, as well as iPad Air and newer.
At the time of launch of iOS 12, some of these devices were five years old. Therefore, the failure scenario from several generations of smartphones at once seems unlikely. True, the iPhone 5s and iPhone SE are still unlikely to receive an update.
