Twitter no longer works on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

Twitter no longer works on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
iPhone 6 users are reporting that the Twitter app no longer works on their phones (via 9to5Mac).

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were released in 2014 and discontinued nearly two years later in most markets. The phones ceased getting software updates in 2019 with the launch of iOS 13.

Although Twitter dropped support for iOS 12 in early 2021, iPhone 6 users were still able to use an older version of the app. The Twitter app was updated this week and it now does not support iOS 13 either. The latest version of the app requires at least iOS 14. 

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users are saying that while they can still view some tweets on the timeline, most other features don't work anymore and the app is barely useable.

Only a few people will be affected though, as only 2 percent of iPhone users are on iOS 13 or older version of Apple's smartphone operating system. So, if you have the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, or an older iPhone, you can only use Twitter through the Safari browser. 

The iPhone 6 was one of the most popular iPhones. The iPhone 6 Plus was added to Apple's vintage and obsolete products list in February and the regular model will apparently be added to the list in 2023. 

The handsets are powered by the 20nm A8 chip and have 1GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Apple recently released its first mid-tier iPhone with 5G connectivity, which might be worth considering if you want to upgrade without breaking the bank.
