Hello, That is true. If you don’t have cellular service on the old iPhone you will need to have a wireless connection via a router or cellular hotspot. If you don’t have any of those you will be unable to use SIRI or internet radio. I hope this helps. Ed Worrell > On Apr 27, 2016, at 7:11

The claims in this article are absurd. If Apple is going to remove the head phone jack, and make us use the lightning connector for audio they will include lightning headphones. Blue-tooth audio is only bad during phone calls, music comes through loud and clear. So what if you need another
