Separately, last week, a report surfaced online claiming that Apple will not offer to upgrade a substantial number of iOS devices that received iOS 12, to iOS 13. The report also claimed that the company might also drop support for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone SE, which further means these smartphones might not be getting the latest iOS 13. There could be a possibility that the newest iOS 13 might not be released for the older iPhone 5s, iPad mini 2, and iPad Air.
Besides, in March 2019, the iPhone maker distributed WWDC tickets to developers by random selection. The cited source also reported that Apple also offered 350 scholarships to students and STEM organization members. This includes a “free ticket to WWDC 2019 as well as free lodging at San Jose State University.”
