    My husband is now thinking of transitioning from his work-issued iPhone 7 to my old iPhone 8+. He's wanting to know how long the iPhone 8 line will be viable. My guess is 1-2 years. Thoughts?

    1-2 years seems to be the smart bet. Especially since all the rumors point to the 6S Plus being discontinued in IOS 15.

    That would my expectation as well. The iPhone 6s is still supported, so it would be surprising they would cut support for iPhone 7, 8 and X in the next year.

    My guess is at least 2 more years for the 8 and 8 Plus. Most likely until iOS 17. Even then, it will still be a good iPhone with iOS 16, as long as the battery is good.

    The iPhone 8 released the same year as the iPhone X. So, probably as long as the iPhone X.
