About LineageOS –

Lineage OS rose from the ashes of the CyanoenOS, the once popular custom ROM, that eventually became so popular that manufacturers used to come preloaded into the devices. It had an active development community. It had a massive fanbase. The success was mostly owing to the fact that CyanogenOS came with a ton of built-in features and offered great customization options along with default root access to the device. Despite the initial steps due to some major setbacks, Cyanogen Inc. closed the doors in 2016. LineageOS was a fork of the CyanogenMod with the first version being the LineageOS 14.1 and included active participation from a large community of developers, most of which who had worked on CyanogenMod also.

So, time to move in from this history lesson.

About Lineage OS 16

The current official version of LineageOS is the 15.1 and it is built atop Android 8.1 Oreo and comes with a bunch of devices also. But, if you have been living under a rock, you might be knowing that most of the android OEM’s provide OS updates for 2 years only. So, it may well be the case with LineageOS also, as the LineageOS 16 would be its third iteration, meaning that the support for some old devices may end.
