Apple Inc. is one of the leading manufacturers of mobile phones, likes to up their game every year. They are going to soon launch iOS 14 in the WWDC event in June 2020. This is indeed big news for all the Apple users. In this event, the company will reveal the new features of the latest mobile operating system. Along with that, the company has also decided to show us some of the previews.
In the last two years, Apple’s performance was questionable. This may have convinced the developers to come up with something new and different. According to sources, this time Apple is working on something unique. If the sources are to be believed, their innovation is going to blow our minds. The developers are making something that is beyond our imagination.
Taking this opportunity, we are going to discuss the iDevices that will be compatible with the latest iOS 14. So if you are an Apple user and interested, then you should give this article a read.
iPhone 6S Will Not Receive iOS 14
With every new iOS system, Apple introduces a lot of new upgrades. So we are hoping that iOS 14 will not be an exception. In case, you didn’t know Apple ditched several iPhones and iPads when iOS 13 was released.
Now the question is what the company will do with the upcoming iOS 14. Whether they will carry on with their ditching trend or do something else, is not at the moment.
According to reports, iOS 14 will be available only to the devices that are released from 2016 onward. This means the entire iPhone 6 series is excluded from receiving the iOS 14 upgrade.
Will iPhone SE Receive iOS 14?
Now you must be wondering, whether iPhone SE will get iOS 14 or not. As per our analysis, the iPhone SE belongs to the complex category. Although it has the same features as iPhone 6, it was launched after the iPhone 6 series. We believe, that even iPhone SE will be excluded from the list of compatible devices with iOS 14 upgrades.
So, if you own iPhone 6, 6S, or SE, then you will not receive the new update from Apple. This also means that you will miss out on all the new things that will come with the new upgrade unless you get a new iPhone for yourself.
List of All iOS 14 Compatible Devices
Now that you know the devices that will be excluded from receiving iOS 14, it’s time that we get to know the devices that will be compatible with it.
As far as, we know, iPhone 7 series and all the models above that will be compatible with the new iOS 14. So if you own any of the iPhone models from this category, then it’s good news for you. We have made our assumption based on our logical guess. We arrived at this conclusion after analyzing the patterns of previous iOS releases.
To give you a clear picture of all the devices compatible with iOS 14, we have laid down a list below. Go through the list and see whether your phone is supported by the new upgrade.
- iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and iPhone SE (first generation)
- iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max
- iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max
- iPhone SE (2020)
We would also like you to know that the previous iOS 13 is only compatible with just one iPod and that belongs to the latest iPod Touch 7th gen. This makes us believe that even the new iPod Touch 7th gen will get the iOS 14 support as well.
After reading this post, hopefully, you have got some idea of the devices that will receive the new iOS 14. However, nothing is final. Unless the company itself releases an official notice, we cannot be sure of anything. The information we have provided in this post can either turn out to be true or false.
If you are desperate to get the new iOS 14, then we will suggest you visit your nearby Apple Store and upgrade your iPhone model. This is only for users who are not using the aforementioned devices in the list above. You can also get your new iPhone from an online marketplace.
As of now, Apple has not announced anything officially with regards to iOS 14 compatibility. Once we get the updates, we will surely let you know. Till then, stay tuned.
