iOS 13 and iPadOS: Will your iPhone or iPad run it?

Will your iPhone or iPad be made obsolete by iOS 13?

Here is a list of iOS 13 compatible devices, along with those that will see support dropped.

Must read: iOS 13’s killer feature will make your battery last longer… but there are downsides

On the iOS 13 front, here are the devices that will receive the update:

  • iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6S and 6S Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPod touch 7th-generation

All iPhones older than the iPhone 6S won’t receive iOS 13. This means that the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5s will remain stuck on iOS 12 forever, and begin accumulating unfixed bugs and security issues from the point iOS 13 is released. 

As for iPod touch users, it’s the end of the line for the 6th-generation iPod touch, with only the newly-released 7th-generation iPod touch getting iOS 13.

When it comes to iPadOS (the new name for iOS for the iPad), here is the compatibility list:

  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • 11-inch iPad Pro
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
  • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • iPad (6th-generation)
  • iPad (5th-generation)
  • iPad mini (5th-generation)
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad Air (3rd-generation)
  • iPad Air 2

This means that the iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, and iPad Air won’t get the iPadOS update.

For Apple Watch users, watchOS 6 has the same compatibility list as watchOS 5, covering:

  • Apple Watch Series 1
  • Apple Watch Series 2
  • Apple Watch Series 3
  • Apple Watch Series 4

Note however that not all features will be available across all devices, although Apple hasn’t broken down the features list for the different models.

One change however is that the iPhone hardware requirement moves up from an iPhone 5S to an iPhone 6S or later.
