In the market for a second-hand phone? Check it's still supported by the vendor – almost a third sold are not

With iPhones: The iPhone 6s is the oldest one that gets new OS versions (iOS 13). But older phones with iOS 12 are still getting security updates.

And generally, it's nice if you get updates, but if money is tight, an older phone that isn't "supported" will usually still be working just fine.
