A third of the iPhones now in use are three or more years old, an app analytics vendor said a day before Apple unveils the new iPhone 7.

According to Boston-based Localytics, 32% of all iPhones used in August were models that debuted in 2013 or earlier, with that year’s iPhone 5S the third-most popular device at 17%. Others, including 2012’s iPhone 5 and 2011’s iPhone 4S, accounted for single digit shares.

Localytics measured share by tallying the models among more than 100 million iPhones that reported data to the app developers that use its analytics tools.
