iOS 14 & iPadOS 14: Which iPhone and iPads Will Get The Update?

Apple is expected to announce a new version of its mobile operating system – iOS 14 – in June, during the annual Worldwide Developers Conference. Of course, we all know somw older iPhones might not make the list of compatible devices with the latest version of the Cupertino operating system. However, this year, the Californian giant will not leave out any of the iPhones already compatible with iOS 13.

According to the French website iPhoneSoft which cites an internal source to Apple, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE (the oldest to have received iOS 13) will also receive the update to iOS 14 which will debut onboard the next iPhone generation in September.

The list below is not official, which is why things could change in a few months. There’s possibility of the iPhone SE being excluded and that would be even more logical if its much-talked-about successor were really to arrive in March, as has long been rumored.

iOS 14: Compatible Devices Are

  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone XS
  • IPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone‌ X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8‌ Plus
  • IPhone 7
  • iPhone‌ 7 Plus
  • iPhone‌ 6s
  • iPhone‌ 6s Plus
  • iPhone‌ SE
  • iPod touch (7th generation)

As per iPads, the source claims that Apple will abandon support for ‌iPad‌ mini 4, released in September 2015, and ‌iPad‌ Air 2, arrived in October 2014. Consequently, the devices that will support the new version of iPadOS should be:

  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro‌

Again, kindly note that this is not an official list and that for this reason, it could be subject to variations.


Apple is likely to prioritize access to services in iOS 14, with Apple Arcade, Apple TV+, Apple News and Apple Music becoming ever more important revenue streams for the company, so it would make sense for Apple’s mobile software to continue supporting a wide range of devices
