Since iOS 10 has been in use for nearly two years, it does not affect recently purchased devices, but depending on the operating system version, support for older iPhones and iPads will be discontinued. This includes iPhone 4s, iPad 2, 3rd gen iPad, original iPad mini, and 5th gen iPod touch.
Customers who want to upgrade to new hardware to ensure continuous updates need to avoid iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and 4th iPad dropped on iOS 11. Twitter will continue to release updates for these devices' apps, but apps that require iOS 11 and iOS 12 immediately will not work with these products.
