iPhone 4 will not have iOS 8 support

Sorry, iPhone 4 users. Your beloved smartphone is technically obsolete as Apple will not provide iOS 8 support to its four-year-old handset. The new mobile operating system from Apple, which is expected to be available later this year, can support devices as old as the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2.

The iPhone 4’s road to extinction has already been written on the wall. Apple stopped selling the device last year and while it supported iOS 7, users complained about its slow performance. The company has since dropped older handsets from upgrades, such as when it did not provide support for iPhone 3GS when iOS 6 was launched.

The iPhone 4 was first introduced during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on June 2010. It went on sale later that month. It was the first to sport Apple’s Retina display (a 3.5-inch screen with 960×640 resolution), as well as a 5-megapixel camera and A4 processor. At the time of its launched, it was hailed as the “thinnest smartphone in the world.” Apple sold 1.7 million iPhone 4 units within the first three days of its launch.
