    How is it with iOS 9.2 ? My mom is thinking of getting a iPhone 5s and wanted to make sure it is not to laggy with iOS 9.2

    How much longer do you think it will support iOS for ? Do you think iOS 10 will work fine on it?

    If your mom doesnt care about OS speed, apps being a little slow etc (for the most part), then the 5S is fine.
    If you actually care about enough to think about iOS 10 on it (!!!), then I would suggest looking at the 6/6S.

    Ok thanks!

    Do you have to update iOS on a iPhone ?

    I have the 5s and it has iOS 9.2. Runs just fine. Not as fast as my 6s plus, but she will not be disappointed. Some people are OCD about lag, but I have not noticed this.

    When I got the 5s, I was given the chance to update. It went smoothly

    You don't have to update, but you will start to get app incompatibilities as time goes on and apps get updated for newer versions of iOS. My brother has a Mini 2, which has the same specs as the 5s and it has no issues with performance. I would recommend getting at least an iPhone 6 or newer though if it were me.

    As stated by Flow39, you do not have to update so she could theoretically stay on her current iOS version. If you are getting a great deal, go for it!
