    I think yes, because iphone 5 and 5c can't upgrade to iOS 11 and iPhone 5s can, it mean this OS is the ultimate for 5s and can't upgrade to iOS 12 or later.

    Ultimate? I don’t agree.
    Final? It sure is!

    <pedantic>Many people think that best definition for ultimate is "best", but "final" is a better one word definition. (People make a similar mistake for penultimate, which means "second from the end of a series".)

    So, if you think that iOS 11 is the final version of iOS for the 5s, then you think that it is the ultimate version.</pedantic>

    I do agree that IOS 10 or lower is probably better for the iPhone 5s but never say never about future upgrades. If we look at previous update history it does look like the 5s will be going but apparently Apple only dropped the 5 and 5c because they ran on 32-bit processors and they want only 64bit going forward. 😃

    So maybe, just maybe, because the 5s has 64bit. It might be kept around for another! I'll have a quick chat with Tim to make sure it stays haha.

    This would be the 4th upgrade, so I would think that is par for the course for the final.
