iOS 14 arriving later this year will be compatible with all iPhone and iPod Touch models on which iOS 13 can currently be installed. This news arrives like a bomb that can only catch on Apple users who have always chosen their iPhones even for a longer and longer device life thanks to the compatibility with the operating system. Those who were worried that their iPhone, perhaps a little dated, could be left on the pole with iOS, will be happy to discover that iOS 14 will also arrive on it, at least according to rumors of the last hour.
iOS 14: compatible with all iPhones
So what will be the iPhones that could actually support iOS 14? As said all those who currently have iOS 13 installed or otherwise already support this operating system. In this case, according to rumors, Apple would bring the new iOS 14 to everyone, guaranteeing its operation even on older devices, a symptom of a remarkable optimization.
But here is the list of devices compatible with iOS 14:
- iPhone SE (2020)
- iPhone 11
- iPhone 11 Pro
- iPhone 11 Pro Max
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone XR
- iPhone X
- iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
- iPhone SE (2016)
- iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
- iPod touch (7th-generation)
At this point the iPhones excluded from the update should be the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 which integrate the Apple A7 and A8 chips respectively and therefore may not be able to obtain the pass to iOS 14. For iPads the question does not seem to be easy to understand yet since there is now iPadOS in the middle and that there are no precise indications in indiscretions.
Which iPads will support iPadOS 14? Here are some hypotheses:
- iPad Pro 12.9 ″ 2016 and 2017
- iPad Pro 10.5 ″
- iPad Pro 9.7 ″
- iPad Pro 11 ″ 2018
- iPad Air 3
- iPad 5
- iPad 6
- iPad 7
- iPad Mini 5
IPad Mini 4 and iPad Air 2 are also excluded who have good but dated chipsets and therefore could be excluded from the release of the new Apple operating system.
iOS 14: what will change?
We don’t know much about what will change in the new iOS 14. Graphically, the Apple operating system does not undergo a ” restoration ” from many versions even if everything is in line with what the Cupertino company has done in recent years, also to standardize it with macOS. Certainly what is rumored most is the possibility that the company can introduce widgets for the first time in iOS 14. On Androidwidgets are elements ready to be placed on the smartphone homepage to quickly view information from an app.
On iOS they may be mobile, and it is probable that on the new Apple operating system they could be set on the whole page or perhaps even only in part with a resizing that can make more or less information readable. He thought about a possible idea of the widgetsAleksey Bondarev, taken from the usualBen Geskin, thatcreated a small video where you can see what widgets could look like on iOS 14.Clearly ” fantasizing ” since nothing or little leaked from Apple’s code.
More iOS 14 functionality could rigurdere the presence of a new API,PencilKit, specific to the capacitive pen supported by some products, updates to the internal messaging service,Messages, onenew home screen, the ability to test third-party apps by scanning a QR code, a iCloude keychain review and more.
