There’s a huge day for Apple fans tomorrow with the firm set to release its next big software updates.

The yearly WWDC Developers Conference gets underway from 6pm BST with a swathe of new features and upgrades expected to be revealed for the MacBook, iPad and Apple Watch.

However, the news that most people will be watching for is the next big upgrade to the iPhone.

iOS 13 will almost certainly be revealed to the world at this major keynote which is taking place in San Jose, California.

Rumours suggest that Apple will bring a whole host of upgrades to its smartphone range including the possible inclusion of a Dark Mode, improved camera settings and more easy access to W-Fi and Bluetooth settings.

New Animojis could also be revealed and there’s bound to be some upgrades to the health and screen time settings.

We’ll find out the full set of features on Monday afternoon but there could be some bad news for owners of older iPhone devices such as the iPhone SE and iPhone 6.

According to a report from iPhonesoft.fr, Apple may decide that it’s time to stop the updates for these ageing smartphones.

There’s no confirmation that this is true but SE owners could rightly be upset considering this device is only three years old.

HERE’S THE LIST OF COMPATIBILITY ACCORDING TO THE REPORT

Getting iOS 13 • iPhone XS Max – iPhone XS – iPhone XR – iPhone X – iPhone 8 Plus – iPhone 8 – iPhone 7 Plus – iPhone 7 – iPhone 6S – iPhone 6S Plus

NOT getting iOS 13 • iPhone 5s – iPhone 6 – iPhone 6 Plus (the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE would be in balance also according to iPhonesoft’s source).

Along with some older iPhones losing support for the latest OS, it’s also being reported that iPad mini 2 and the early iPad Air will not be able to install iOS 13.

It’s worth noting that all current iOS 12 features will continue to work and the new operating system is unlikely to launch much before September so there’s plenty of time to consider an upgrade if the news becomes a reality.

Express.co.uk will be bringing you all the news and gossip live from WWDC tomorrow.
