Sony Ends Support for A Few Older Smartphones, Includes Xperia S, Xperia ion, and Xperia go

Smartphone manufacturers can’t support phones forever, a fact that Sony made clear today when it announced a number of its older devices would no longer receive software updates.

These are mostly older devices; every handset falls outside the 18-month update window Google and other Android phone makers generally follow. However, that doesn’t make the news any less sad.

Here’s Sony’s complete list of EoL devices:

  • Xperia arc S
  • Xperia S
  • Xperia SL
  • Xperia ion
  • Xperia acro S
  • Xperia go
  • Xperia P
  • Xperia J
  • Xperia micro
  • Xperia sola
  • Xperia tipo
  • Xperia U

If you’re the owner of any of these smartphones, you may want to consider an upgrade.
