Good news for Apple users | Apple has provided a significant assurance to iPhone users with its latest announcement regarding software updates. The company has confirmed that the iPhone 15 series,  including the flagship iPhone 15 Pro Max, will receive software updates and security patches for at least five years and will receive software updates for a minimum of 5 years. 

However, Apple may extend support beyond this period. This decision comes in response to new regulations in the UK.


Apple has been known for providing long-term updates for its devices. With this new policy, users of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro Max can expect regular updates and security patches for at least five years.

According to reports, new regulations in the UK have prompted Apple to clarify its support policies. This regulatory pressure led Apple to announce a minimum of five years of support for the iPhone 15 series.

Android users get up to 7 years of software updates

In comparison, Apple’s competitors like Samsung and Google are still leading in this area, offering a minimum of seven years of software support for their flagship devices, such as the Pixel and Galaxy S24 Ultra.

It's important to note that Samsung's 7-year update policy applies only to its flagship models.

While Apple has consistently provided extended updates in the past, many Android manufacturers had not been as transparent about their support timelines until recently. The trend has shifted, and now more Android brands are clarifying their update policies.

Although Apple's minimum five-year support for the iPhone 15 series may appear shorter compared to the seven-year promises from Google and Samsung, it's important to understand that Apple's commitment is a baseline guarantee. Given Apple's history of extending support beyond its minimum commitments, iPhone users can expect to receive updates and new features for many years.
