    I would like to have iOS 11 running on my iPhone 5c. As far as I know that phone is not supported for iOS 11 by apple but I am wondering if anyone made a patch tool for the iPhone like there is to get macOS High Sierra running on unsupported laptops like my mid 2009 13 inch MacBook pro which now runs High Sierra perfect. If there is can someone point me to it?

    There’s never been any program that can enable a newer iOS version than Apple allow.

    iOS 11 is 64bit only and the 5c has a 32bit processor so it’s even more impossible with this particular combination than it ever was.

    that would be impossible to make a 64 bit os run on 32 bit processors.... well that kinda sucks but it is what it is

    You aren't really loosing anything IMHO. There are many folks, including myself, that wish we hadn't upgraded to 11, much less to 10.2.1.
    What would you have gained upgrading to 11?
    And if it helps, the SE is a pretty good unit all by itself and it does run iOS 11.

    kinda like the emojis that iOS 11 has especially on the iPhone x..... been thinking about upgrading to the iPhone x but not sure if I like the price of it.

    Animoji aside, the iPhone 8 is an excellent alternative to the iPhone X. Has more "normal" pricing and is virtually the same speed, has wireless charging, and has a bigger ecosystem of cases and accessories since it shares the same configuration as the iPhone 7.

    that may be an option. I am really liking macOS High Sierra that I was able to install on my unsupported mid 2009 MacBook pro and was hoping for something like that for the phone too but seeing as one is a 32 bit processor and iOS 11 is 64 bit that is impossible to do.

    Based on how it's running on a friend's 5S (which is double the speed of the 5/5c), it runs pretty poorly. Im keeping mine on 10.3.3 and it's pretty fast

    If you like the form factor of the 5c the SE is a good upgrade. Some may disagree but my SE runs perfectly fine on iOS 11.

    It's not even just that. With iOS it's virtually impossible to run any version of iOS other than the ones Apple officially releases. You can't install iOS 10 on a 4 or 4s. 9 on a 4 etc. Regardless it would be pretty slow anyway.
