According to the story by 9to5Mac, they were also surprised to find out that Captain America Chris Evans was still using the iPhone 6 in 2022. With the iPhone 14 almost coming out, they were shocked to find out that the actor was still using an older Apple device model.

The Captain America actor noted that he won’t miss the nightly battle of trying to charge the device or the grainy pictures. He also said that he won’t miss the battery suddenly dropping from 100% down to 15% and then completely drained in just a number of minutes.
RIP iPhone 6s
We had a good run. I’ll miss your home button.
I won’t miss the nightly battle of trying to get you to charge. Or your grainy pictures. Or your sudden drops from 100% battery, to 15%, to completely dead all within minutes.
It was a wild ride. Rest easy, pal.

Captain America Actor Decides to Upgrade to an iPhone 13
The actor then noted that using the iPhone 6s “was a wide ride. Rest easy, pal.” Luckily, although the iPhone 6s is quite old, it still runs the latest version of Apple’s iOS but this could change with the iPhone 16 come September.
Come September, Apple will be dropping the first-gen iPhone SE, the iPhone 6s, and even the iPhone 7 from software support this coming fall. Luckily, Chris Evans has decided to upgrade to a more modern iPhone 13.

Why Apple Drops Support for Older iPhone Models
9to5Mac notes that due to the purchase habits of the actor, he might not be phased when he upgrades to the iPhone 13 despite the iPhone 14 coming out soon. The actor posted on Instagram with the same description as his post on Twitter.
A lot of buyers are waiting for the iPhone 14 and this has influenced their decision to hold off on purchasing the iPhone 13 in order to wait for the newest Apple device. Since Apple constantly comes out with new iPhones, there’s really no telling when the company will stop with new models.
In order to make room for the newer models, older models usually become obsolete so that Apple can focus its resources on upgrading the software of the new ones. This is why most of the older models stop getting operating system updates after a certain period of time.
