New iPhone? No thanks. Older-model owners don’t need or want

Apple may be set to introduce new models of iPhones, but Bill Hudgins has no interest.

He’s got himself an iPhone 5S, the phone that Apple stopped supporting in September 2018 with software updates, bug fixes and the like.

“I haven’t noticed a problem,” says the retired Nashville area writer. “I’m happy with it. It works perfectly fine for me.”

He’s not alone. When we reached out on social media to hear from people who still use older, non-supported iPhones, we were deluged from people all over the world.

“The new phones are too big,” says Anna Komok from Russia, who swears by her iPhone 5 with a 4-inch screen. “I’m a small person.”

More recent iPhones have 4.7-inch, 5.5-inch and 6.5-inch screens.
