“Apple quietly spelt the end of two of its most popular devices at its Worldwide Developer’s Conference on Monday night,” Cara McGoogan reports for The Telegraph.

“The company announced the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 11, at the annual event, introducing a new phone-to-phone payment method and a safe driving mode,” McGoogan reports. “It also features a tweaked design for the iPad that looks more like the Mac operating system.”

“But iOS 11 comes with a caveat. It only works on 64-bit devices, meaning that older Apple products will not be able to upgrade to the new system, rendering them obsolete,” McGoogan reports. “Affected devices include the iPhone 5, released in 2012, and the iPhone 5c, released in 2013… The iPad 4, released in 2012, is also excluded from the list of devices that can upgrade.”
