June 5, 2017 at WWDC Apple will unveil iOS 11, the final version of which will debut in the fall. Unfortunately, the owners of smartphones iPhone 5, iPad mini 2, and iPad 3 and iPod touch 6G will not be able to count on the upgrade to the new OS.
Major release of iOS 11 is designed for smartphones and tablets with processors of the latest generation. Attempts to make this version compatible with older iPhone and iPad will inevitably lead to problems.
