Apple Seeds Third Beta of macOS Big Sur 11.5 to Developers
Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Big Sur 11.5 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming two weeks after the release of the second macOS Big Sur 11.5 beta.
Developers can download the macOS Big Sur 11.5 beta using the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after installing the proper profile from the Apple Developer Center.
macOS Big Sur 11.5 may be a more minor update focusing on under-the-hood performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS Big Sur 11.4 update. No new features were found in the first two betas.

Meaning the iPhone 6S, that I bought in September 2015, will be updated until September 2022. A whopping 7 years.
Sorry but I fail to see where the planned obsolescence is.
Given that the monterey x86 kernel schedules threads properly on the mid 2012 cpu cores, the graphics card kext still loads, what technical reason is there to have completely abandoned support? You can’t tell me planned obsolescence isn’t part of it. The only thing that doesn’t work out of the box is Wi-Fi, and I didn’t check to see if Bluetooth works or not.
The fact that Monterey booted just fine on my mid 2012 kinda pissed me off to be honest. not clear why it’s not supported, even if it doesn’t get all the bells and whistles like universal control or side car or whatever.
