will iPhone 8 get iOS 17.3.1? Here’s an Answer

In this article, I’ll share my thoughts on Is the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus still worth buying in 2023? how long will the iPhone 8 be supported and should you buy iPhone 8 in 2023? At first, I’d like to remind you that Apple announced the iPhone 8 in September 2017 alongside the major iOS 11 update, which is roughly two years. And with the release of the new iPhone and iPad, Apple cuts out the list of the latest iOS supporting device, like when iOS 13 was released, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5S lose the support of iOS 13, this is how Apple’s criteria works.

Many of you already know about this and also made predictions on whether the iPhone 8 will support the iOS 17 (current year’s version of 2023) or say the latest iOS or the latest iOS compatibility list. Apple iPhone nerds always want to explore the newest features of iOS, so before making any decision on whether should I purchase iPhone (7, 8, XR, X) or gather a few bucks and wait for the latest iPhone launching this fall.

When will Apple Stop Supporting iPhone 8?

Another reason many users prefer to buy iPhones is that Apple provides the latest update support for almost five years on average, which is ridiculous compared to Android phones. If we look at the old records, then your iPhone 8 will support the latest iOS for up to 5 years, which means, starting from 2017 to 2022. Apple iOS 16 is the last operating system update for iPhone 8 series.

Can I Use iPhone 8 in 2023?

As I said according to predictions based on past year patterns of supporting iPhone by Apple, the iPhone 8 did not get iOS 17 update. So, it’s just a one or two-year game, if you don’t have more money currently and don’t need advanced features and camera quality like the iPhone 11 lineup or iPhone XS/XR have, then stay with the iPhone 8.

If I compare the price of the iPhone 8 with other models, then iPhone 8 costs around $449, iPhone XR is $599 and the latest iPhone 11 is $699, around there is a $100 difference between all the iPhone models.

Now it’s up to you whether to buy the iPhone 8 in 2023 or spend more money on the latest iPhone 11 or XR and enjoy the latest iOS for one more year.

I’ve also compared the iPhone 11 and iPhone XR, you should probably read that article too, it will help make you a better decision.
