Older device section

Not sure how this would work, just throwing idea out there of an older device section/subforum. iPad mini no longer cutting edge.

Would my iPhone 6 fall into this category? I feel like it's getting a bit old.

Probably not.

I think it's iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad mini 1 which is now official last-gen.

I've always considered iDevices as "old" when it's no longer safe to update to the newest version of iOS. iPhone 4 didn't run well with iOS 7, 5s and 5c don't run well with iOS 9 and likely iPhone 6 and 6+ will not run well with iOS 10. Hopefully that doesn't happen but we will see.

It seems that I'm always gonna be on the "doesnt run well with" line.
