This raises the question of iOS 13 device compatibility though. Which iPhones and iPads will support iOS 13?
iPhone 6 and 5S will not be supported
Last year’s iOS 12 was a terrific release, dramatically improving system performance for a huge range of iPhones – from the brand new iPhone X, all the way up to the venerable iPhone 5S. This year, however, Apple is finally dropping support for the two oldest generations: iPhone 5S and iPhone 6.
With iOS 13, the oldest supported iPhone will be the iPhone 6S, which has the A9 chipset and 2GB of RAM – double the capacity of the iPhone 6. And yes, that means the iPhone SE gets also iOS 13, as it shares the same specs as the iPhone 6S. Apple has yet to say if there are any specific iOS 13 features that won’t be available on these iPhones, so hopefully users of these models will indeed get the full and proper version.
And now, here is a complete list with all iPhone and iPad models that will receive iOS 13 (or in the case of iPads – iPadOS) this fall:
