Obviously iOS 7 looks incredible enough that virtually every single iPhone, iPad, and iPod owner on the planet is going to want to run the amazing new iOS on their devices… leading to the big question on everyones minds being, what devices does iOS 7 support? And what new features work on which device? The full lists are below, but it’s safe to assume that basically any semi-new iOS device has full support, though not all devices compatible with iOS 7 will get every single feature (like AirDrop).
Here is what we know so far, courtesy of Apple:
iOS 7 Supported Devices
These are the officially supported iOS 7 devices:
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 5
- iPad 2
- iPad 3
- iPad 4
- iPad Mini
- iPod touch 5th gen
Of course, any new and unannounced iOS devices released this fall (likely alongside iOS 7) will also support the major update.
