This is not the case. I'm using a 6s on 13.1.

If your iPhone can't update any more, it will stop receiving updates anyway.

I was lead to believe that any phone lower than a 7 would not update to IOS 13. Is this not the case?

It'll probably be good for any 13.X updates, but I wouldn't hold my breath for next year's 14 iOS.
That aside, it should still work perfectly fine even after Apple stops providing iOS updates for it. No different than Win 7 for example where its lifecycle came to an end, but that didn't mean that suddenly the OS was no longer functional.
I have an SE as my second business cell and I plan on using that bad boy until the wheels fall off.
Most likely, you may find that certain apps once iOS 14 come out may start giving you problems or run slower or simply not have all the features available than newer versions, but as far as the phone not working? Not true.

I was told that my iPhone 6S will not be able to receive any updates after the 13.1 update that is scheduled for this month. Does anyone know if this is true? Also, pardon my ignorance but will the phone still be useable once they stop supporting it? I literally bought it new from Consumer Cellular less than two weeks ago and was hoping it would last me a couple years. I don't use the phone often, mainly for text messages and the occasional voice call. Thanks for any info in advance!
