Will my iPhone and iPad be compatible with iOS 14?

Minsk, Belarus - October, 26, 2019: New Space Gray Iphone 11 Pro Max

We’re just weeks away from Apple’s official unveiling of iOS 14 at its upcoming virtual WWDC, and whilst we don’t know exactly what will be included in the new operating system, new details have emerged to suggest that all devices compatible with iOS 13 will run iOS 14.

According to a report from The Verifier, a leaked version of iOS 14 has revealed the compatibility of the new operating system, meaning it’ll be the biggest available launch to date, covering the latest iPhone SE and iPhone 11, all the way to the original iPhone SE of 2016 and the 7th-generation iPod touch.

A full breakdown of iOS 14 compatibility is as follows:

  • 2020 iPhone SE
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • 2016 iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • 7th-gen iPod touch

According to the insider, iOS 14 will be the last version of iOS that will support the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s Plus, and the 2016 iPhone SE, which makes sense, as Apple offers software updates for four to five years before putting those devices into obsolescence.

We don’t know for sure what iPadOS will look like this year but assume that all iPads that can operate iPadOS 13 will be able to use the new software. Right now, the iPad Air 2, iPad Air (third-generation), iPad mini 4, iPad mini 5, fifth-generation iPad, sixth-generation iPad, seventh-generation iPad, and all iPad Pro models can run iPadOS 13.

Apple will share more news on iPadOS 14 and iOS 14 at its WWDC event on June 22.
