iPhone 7 didn’t have to lose iOS support, all you had to do was limit some of the lockscreen customizations and then the iPhone 7 could run iOS 16.

The iPhone 7 is ancient in phone years but that shouldn’t matter as long as its chip is capable of supporting iOS 16
Apple could have disabled some resource-intensive iOS 16 features on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. That would have let iPhone 7 users enjoy some long due features as well as take advantage of security patches and bug fixes. Apple may still continue to offer some security updates for the phones though, as it has done with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6.
Having said that, the iPhone 7 received around six years of software support, which is very impressive, especially when compared to what Android phones that were released during the same time period got.
While iPhone 7 users are helpless in the face of the new requirements and they can only get a taste of iOS 16 by buying a supported model, there is no stopping them from voicing their frustration and many of them took to Twitter to call out Apple for this.
Apple not supporting ios 16 on iPhone 7 might be most weird thing i ever saw
Worst part is
Ipads that are LESS powerful than iphone 7 wilk get the new ios
What kind of logic is that apple?
