When the iPhone 7 was released in 2016, it was a revolutionary device that offered features like never before. However, now that it's 2023, it's time to take a step back and look at the iPhone 7 and assess whether it is still the best choice for your business.

Why You Need to Make the Switch Now

Apple continued to issue security updates for the iPhone 7 until 2022, though they were based on iOS 15 only. But after September 12th last year, the iPhone 7 no longer received updates from Apple at all. This means that even though the phone may still be functional, it will be vulnerable to attack and eventually unable to access updated apps and App Store.  The risks associated with using an unsupported device far outweigh any potential benefits.

Is my phone useless if it stops receiving updates?

It depends on how much an individual values security and functionality. If having the latest updates and security patches is important to you, then a phone that no longer receives updates can be considered “useless” as it may become increasingly vulnerable to new threats or bugs. Outdated, unsupported devices are also unable to take advantage of the latest

However, this will not affect its functioning. Using the device with no further updates will still allow you to make calls, play games, access the web and run apps without any disruption. As long as there are no hardware failures or critical bugs present, it is still possible to use your device in this manner. It is important to keep in mind that you may be vulnerable to security risks
