After months of speculation iOS 15 has been announced for real. Here are all the iPhones that are actually compatible with it.

Back in January PhoneSoft theorised that iOS 15 would not support the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus or the original iPhone SE.

And this made sense. Generally iOS will only support an iPhone for around five years. The above devices all came out in 2015 and have an older A9 chipset.
But the rumour turned out not to be true. The‌ iPhone‌ 6s, iPhone‌ 6s Plus‌, iPhone SE‌ (1st generation)‌, iPhone SE‌ (2nd generation) and iPod touch (7th generation) will all live to see another year of support.

This is the second year in a row that older iPhones have not had support dropped. You simply love to see it. 2019 was the last time we saw a removal, with the original iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s not being compatible with iOS 13.
