Agreed. I think it is highly unlikely the 4s will get iOS 9.Possibly, but not likely. It could be part of the S models getting another year of iOS updates over the preceding non-S models. The discontinuation of iOS updated for an S model has only happened once, because of this it is not possible to define a trend.
Well said.Always the case. Never install the third major update from the version of iOS that your phone ships with.
Personally I would never go past the second, from painful experience.
Why not? The rumour is iOS 9 will be a performance based update os if it runs the same or better than iOS 8, then they should support it. Especially as it shares the internals with the iPod Touch 5 which is for sale now which I would assume will receive iOS 9 (as besides one time, Apple has always provided updates for devices , a year after they are discontinued). The 4S has similar internals to the iPad 2, iPad Mini 1 and iPad 3, which hold around 60 percent of the iPad market share.I'd have thought it highly unlikely.
Seeing as the iPhone 4S will be four years old this year I can't imagine Apple would wish to continue updating it.
Not only that if iOS 8 performs badly on the device, what's to say iOS 9 will be any different?
He never did. The general assumption is that iOS 9 will mainly focus on performance improvements and bug fixes, based on several rumours.When did Tim Cook describe this? Source?
History also indicates that apple changes iPhone support cycles..If history is any indication, then no ):
It is hard to say.It's more likely to get iOS 9 than iPhone 4 was ever going to get iOS 8, but it's still hard to say.
