    In terms of iOS updates, will the iPhone 5s be compatible with iOS 9, 10, 11, etc.? I understand that it will be compatible with iOS 8 and get the majority of software features that the iPhone 6 will be getting, but since the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 are still being supported with iOS 8, I'm just curious as to how long the iPhone 5s will be compatible with future iOS updates.

    It should get updates to IOS 10 if apple follows their update pattern they've had since the 3GS.

    The 5s should be compatible with iOS 9, 10 and maybe 11.

    Those who answered above could very well be correct, but dude, no one can say for certain....

    The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior... expect the 5S to be supported similarly to prior devices - until Apple specifies otherwise.

    Depending on what all apple adds in future versions, it will easily make it to IOS10 unless apple decides they want to kill it off before then. The 64bit chip still has a way to go before it is truly taxed by the OS.

    I foresee ram being the biggest bottleneck. If we assume the iPhone's ram doubles every 2 years, the iphone 7 may very well come with 4gb ram. Any OS optimized for that ram likely won't run very well on a phone with 1gb of ram.

    iPhones have tended to get three updates so I'd say that the 5S will get 8, 9 and 10.
