I am using a very old 4S with its iOS v9.3.5 that I got for free in
2015. It's slow and outdated, but I care not! ;)

As long as it does what you need it to do, who cares how old/new it is??

Exactly. Too bad I don't get security updates for its iOS though. :(

You can hope no one is going to spend time trying to access such an old device. 90% of cell phone security consists of maintaining physical control of the device at all time as most serious hacks require the hacker to get physical access to the device to install a substitute OS, and monitoring software. The rest is just common sense about what to allow others access to.
