These Apple devices won’t receive iOS 10

apple ios 10

Apple is ready to roll out iOS 10 tomorrow (13 September), bringing an array of features to the table.

There’s a rich notification system, lift to wake, proactive map suggestions and an Allo-style take on iMessage. Add invisible ink, expanded 3D Touch support, iMessage apps and web-based Apple Pay and you’ve got a pretty chunky update.

Unfortunately, some devices will be left out of the lurch…

Which devices won’t make the cut for iOS 10?

In the iPhone department, the new update is supported by the iPhone 5/5c and above. In other words, those with the iPhone 4s will be left on iOS 9.

As for the iPod Touch, iOS 10 only supports 6th generation models, as opposed to the last update, which supported 5th and 6th generation devices.

Moving over to the iPad, iOS 10 supports the iPad 4 and above, iPad Mini 2 and above, iPad Air and above and the iPad Pro range. By comparison, iOS 9 supported the iPad 2 and above and iPad Mini 1 and above.

Still, you have to commend Apple for supporting devices like the iPad 2 and iPhone 4s for as long as they did, both having been released in 2011. Try finding an Android device from 2011 that still receives official support…
