Less than Samsung and Google. Apple has determined how long its iPhones will last

Historically, Apple has not provided users with a minimum warranty for their iPhone software. Now the company has finally committed to define a minimum support period.

Since the iPhone — are products that support access to the Internet, Apple is required to comply with the UK's PSTI regulation, which came into force in April. The company recently released a statement about the compatibility of its iPhone 15 Pro Max, which states that the specified period of support is “a minimum of five years from the date of first delivery”. The first delivery date is September 22, 2023, the day the iPhone 15 series goes on sale.

Apple is thus confirming to the UK government that it will release security updates for at least n’ years from the launch date of the iPhone 15. In other words, the iPhone 15 is officially guaranteed to receive security updates until September 22, 2028. This term does not necessarily mean that the iPhone will fail in 5 years, and the company may continue to support the device after this minimum period.

Samsung and Google guarantee users seven years not just security updates, but also Android OS updates for their respective flagship devices, which is two years longer than Apple guarantees. However, in some cases, iPhones have received security updates six or more years after their initial release, which is much longer than the vast majority of Android devices.
