Image result for iOS 13 and iPadOS: Will your iPhone or iPad run it?Here is a list of compatible devices, along with those that will see support dropped.

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

  • iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6 and 6 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 on iOS 12. For iPod touch users, the 6th-generation iPod touch also won’t get the update, only the newly-released 7th-generation iPod touch.

When it comes to iPadOS, there is the new 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.
