    This is simple fix for Apple. Next iOS 13 update, drop all hardware below A11 cpu. Also remove all code for older CPU support.
    Force developer to update their apps.
    Update all AppleTV, iPad, iPhone minimum A11 and above. Rest of previous model, flash sale before lunch.
    They could use a Carrot instead say offer 25% app store rate for apps that upate to the new OS within a couple of months of release.

    If they wanted to bloster services revenue they could always tie upgrades pass a point to a fee, and say include it it the package for customers with a subscription service. iCloud paid tiers, Music or ... what every the next one is.

    Better still they could have 2 tiers of OS a core OS that focuses on speed, security and compatablity. Then have the feature release for specific devices.

    Tens of millions of iPhone 5/5s/5c/SE users won't upgrade their phones until there's another compact iPhone in the lineup again.
    Wrong... millions would at least upgrade to 6s and millions of others would upgrade to XR.  There isn’t much of a size increase.  Yes, there are some that want as small a form factor as possible, but it comes with a compromise in screen size as well... this is true for all brands of phones at this time.  
    I think you mean the Xs.  The XR is the same footprint as the 6/7/8 Plus models.
    ... tho you may be thinking that one would prefer to upgrade from 5 to an XS.  I’m not arguing with that.  But I’m assuming these guys with 5/5SE iPhones aren’t willing to spend money for X or XS.  There are many ways to look at it.  But basically the X/XR/XS aren’t really thaaaaat much larger than the older phones.  
    The X and Xs are 140% the size by volume of an iPhone 5/5s/se that is a huge difference. Even the iPhone 6 was 120% the volume of the 5. Both you have add camera bump of and a case as all the current iPhone are too fragile to be used. 

    It isnt at all all about price if it was about price I could pick up a freakishly large second hand iPhone in good condition cheaper than an SE.
