Apple released its latest round of yearly updates for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. You can learn more about these updates at the following links:
MacOS 14: Sonoma
Check out the tables below to see if your device can update to the latest version.
For devices left out of the updates, Apple typically provides security updates for the prior version of the Mac operating system (in this case, MacOS Monterey) for 2 years after the operating system is discontinued.
The outlook for out-of-date iOS devices is less clear, but Apple often provides basic security updates for older iOS devices for 1 additional year. This means that iPhone X and iPhone 8 owners might still receive 1 year of security updates for iOS 16.
For users of even older phones like the iPhone 7 (which is stuck on iOS 15), it's unclear whether they will continue getting any further security updates, and some apps like 1Password have discontinued providing ongoing updates for iOS 15.
