Millions of iPhone users have been warned their mobile devices could become “dangerous” this week.

It may be time for an upgrade as older iPhones will be cut off from the latest software updates.

The rate at which Apple brings out new versions of its devices and technology means it can be hard to keep up with the latest model, but it can also mean older models can become obsolete after a number of years.

Although missing out on new features might not sounds like such a bad thing, it also means your device will miss out on important security updates.

Apple iOS 16 update rolled out on Monday, September 12 with the latest security features, and not being able to update could make your phone ‘dangerous’, reports The Sun.
