iOS 11 signaled the end of support for 32-bit platforms like iPhone 5C. There are now a plethora of used or refurbished iPhone 5C's on eBay and elsewhere online at very good prices, so the idea of buying one is attractive.
If I bought an iPhone 5C what can I practically expect to be able to use it for?
The phone can still run iOS 10. Does Apple provide downloads for iOS 10? If I get a phone that has iOS 9 running on it, will I be able to upgrade it to iOS 10?
Can I sync an iPhone 5C with iTunes on my iMac so I can play music and podcasts on it?
Do most major apps like Lyft, Facebook, and Google provide 32-bit versions of their apps that I can download from the App Store? Could it even provide access to older games and apps that never got upgraded to 64-bit versions?
Can it make phone calls?
Could I still connect to my iCloud account for use in iMessage, Find My Friends, etc?
