Twitter is stopping working on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus after its last update, as confirmed some users who still use one of these two smartphones on a regular basis. The new version of the app available on the App Store now requires a device with iOS 14 or higher to work, while the aforementioned models can only receive iOS 13.6.1.
It’s unclear why Twitter has stopped supporting the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However, this is probably due to the low number of users still using these models. In fact, and according to Apple data, only 7% of iPhone users have a device with iOS 13. Twitter also stopped supporting its app on iOS 12 and earlier versions last year due to the low number of users with this version.
The latest version of Twitter is also likely to have features not supported in iOS 13. Still, and according to Apple Insider, the Cupertino company allows developers to adapt their applications to older operating systems. This is precisely something that Twitter has been doing so far.
Users who have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and try to access Twitter through the app can still navigate the interface or access their profiles, but tweets are not displayed and some of the main functions are inspirational. On the other hand, those users with an iPhone 6s or a higher model with iOS 13, can update the system to a new version to avoid losing support.
The iPhone 6 runs out of Twitter, what about the iPhone 6s?
The iPhone 6, model in which Twitter is no longer supported, it was launched in 2014 to refresh the iPhone 5s. It also came with a Plus model, being the first time that the company announces two versions of the same smartphone. These differed mainly in screen size. The iPhone 6 featured a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus had a 5.5-inch screen. In both cases, with an HD resolution and a pixel density adapted to the size of the panel.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus also came with a new look, betting on more rounded corners and macros and a front where the glass was slightly curved. Months later, Apple renewed them for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, models that stood out for the arrival of 3D Touch, a more powerful processor and improvements in the photographic section. Fortunately, these last two models can update to iOS 15 or receive iOS 14 security updates. Therefore, Twitter can work normally.
