iOS 14 Supported Devices. Apple is also releasing a fresh version of the mobile operating system iOS this year. 2020 is the release of iOS 14. But which devices get the new update? (iOS 14 Beta)
So far, iPhones and iPads have been supplied with the latest iOS version for around four years. This year, however, you seem to want to take a different path.
iOS 14 should come for all iPhones with iOS 13 – also for iPhone 6s and SE
There is especially good news for owners of older iOS models. IPhone Soft reports that this year no iPhone will be left behind. You rely on insider circles. All devices that have already been supplied with iOS 13 should therefore also receive iOS 14. These include the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s. The latter celebrates its sixth birthday this year, the iPhone SE was released in spring 2016. The following models are said to run with iOS 14 supported devices:
The not yet released iPhone models 2020
- iPhone 2020
- 11 Pro/11 Pro Max/11
- XS Max/XS
- 8 Plus/8
- 7 Plus/7
- 6s/6s Plus
- iPod touch (7th generation)
This is how it looks with iPadOS 14
Only the iPads could not be supplied with some models with the new iPadOS update. Both the iPad mini 4 (launched in September 2015) and the iPad Air 2 (October 2014) should not go beyond iPadOS 13. This is what the reported update list for the iPad models looks like:
- iPad Pro (2020)
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2016 and 2017)
- 11 inch iPad Pro (2020)
- 10.5 inch iPad Pro
- 9.7-inch iPad Pro
- (7th generation)
- (6th generation)
- (5th generation)
- mini (5th generation)
- Air (3rd generation)
There is no information about new features in the new operating system version. Optimizations for Apple services such as Apple Arcade or the in-house streaming service AppleTV + should be in the foreground.
However, it is already clear that the 2020 update will go through a tougher review process. Most recently, the major update to iOS 13 was replenished with many smaller patches. Some mistakes crept in during the first big throw. In addition, not all the desired features were delivered with the first update to iOS 13.
The list of devices that should get iOS 14 can still be used with caution. iPhone Soft predicted the update stop for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 last year. There is still no confirmation from Apple. The official announcement of iOS 14 is expected for the WWDC developer conference next June.
