Do you think the 5/5C iPhones will get iOS 11?

    Running iOS 10 on my iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2. Both are fine except for a few odd bugs every blue moon. Weird though, I don't think I seen anyone with the older devices struggling with iOS 10 like the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 did with iOS 7-9.

    Couldn't agree with you more. But an iPhone 6plus will be the worst of all the phones running iOS 11 and up.. that phone was struggling the day it was released

    I find it quite likely that iOS 11 will be 64-bit only. I think 5s might stick around not just next year but even year after that. It was and still is pretty powerful device.

    Hopefully not the 5! I can still run iOS 10, but newer apps are a struggle. Facebook's continual updates just get worse and worse, and Pokemon Go is a struggle compared to my fiancé's 6s.

    Yes, compared to my 6s and 7 my 6 Plus doesn't perform that great, even for very general things

    I have a 5S and most of the "issues" I have are probably from not doing a clean install since I first got my 5S (since iOS 9 days.) so no complaints here!

    I think this is actually more of a concern than people are recognising. It seems the OTA update service really isn't very good and doesn't clean up after itself very well. Years of OTA updates are only going to slow a device. Apple should recommend an iTunes update be done every other update, or at least when a whole new version comes out.

    That seems like somewhat of a generalization given that there are plenty of people that only do OTA updates and their devices are just fine.

    Even through iTunes, anything but a clean install can create residual issues. Not to mention that these issues aren't particular to one generation of devices, as this has happened since the beginning.

    IOS 11 will slow down the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6, iPad Air 1 , mini 2 , mini 3 , iPod touch 6. Because these devices only have 1 gb of ram .

    So basically "could" or perhaps "would" rather than "will".

    In a way I hope iOS 11 doesn't include iPod Touch 6th Gen-it's not too bad in iOS 10 however when you're using an iPad with 2GB of RAM & iPhone with 3GB of RAM you notice the speed differences.

    Is that information coming from Apple or has been confirmed somehow?

    Do you think that Apple will support 32 bit devices this year ???? I think it won't

    So that's basically to say you think that that would be the case, no that it "will" be the case.

    Anyway your claim was all 64 bit devices would be supported, not that ONLY 64 bit devices would be supported

    Yeah, that's not how it works, as you yourself have clarified.

    Actually anything but a clean install AND creating a new iCloud account can create residual issues, as iCloud syncing could cause an issue. But really, I'm aiming to point out the extremity of this line of thinking...

    I don't think that line of thinking is as extreme as you think. My point was that every iteration of the iPhone has always had issues with iOS platforms, every time a new device comes out it tends to have issues with iOS software. Unless it is as mentioned a clean install.

    The good thing is it won't be four months for those devices to get dropped. Only for the announcement as such. It will be September/October by the time iOS 11 ships and those devices officially get dropped. Gives plenty of time for users to make that final upgrade and for the last few developers to update their apps.

    In addition running an iPhone 5 or iPad 4 on iOS 10 for another year won't be a big deal. Generally I think the transition will go well.
