These Macs and iOS devices will receive macOS Sierra and iOS 10 upgrades

Apple had some big announcements today at WWDC 2016, with macOS Sierra and iOS 10. After a long time, the list of supported devices for Apple’s popular desktop and mobile operating systems has received an update. This means that some old devices will not receive any more updates. Considering that Apple has been supporting 5-year-old devices with iOS, it seems about time to move ahead.
