Sorry, But Your Old iPhone 4 Just Became Obsolete

By Adam Clark Estes on at

At Monday's WWDC keynote, Apple announced a flurry of fun new features. With OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, your Mac and iPhone are closer than ever, opening the door to the Future of Computing. Too bad iPhone 4 users won't get to enjoy any of it—and neither will anyone with an even older phone.

The oldest phone that will run iOS 8 is the iPhone 4S. And based on how poorly iOS 7 performed on older iPhones, you can expect some lag running iOS 8 on a 4S. Regardless, it won't work on an iPhone 4 at all. Of course, if you're running iOS 7 on a 4, you were already way behind. And after all, this is how tech works. Welcome to the upgrade StairMaster. So RIP iPhone 4. It was a good run.
