Does my old iPhone support iOS 16?

Can I install iOS 16 on my iPhone? What devices can run iOS 16?

iPhone SE 2016

iOS 16 continues to bring higher efficiency and improved features to Apple mobile devices. Due to older hardware limitations, some iPhone models do not support iOS 16. These iPhones cannot install iOS 16 and will only get security updates for the previous version of iOS.

The following iPhone models do not support iOS 16:

  • iPhone SE (2016) 1st generation
  • iPhone 6s (2015) and earlier
  • iPhone 6s Plus (2015) and earlier

This means the iPhone 7 (2016) and iPhone 7 Plus (2016) and later models support iOS 16. Some features of iOS 16 may not be available on some devices due to hardware limitations.
