All the iPhones, iPads That supports Apple’s iOS 13 and iPadOS; Apple today properly revealed iOS 13, adding new features such as Dark Mode, an all-new Photos app, new privacy protections, and more. Apple details device compatibility for iOS 13 on its website.
With the arrival this fall of iOS 13 and iPadOS, there’s some bad news for those relying on iPhones that debuted in 2013 and 2014 and some of Apple’s older iPads.
When it revealed iOS 13 and iPadOS last month, Apple had terrible news for those relying on iPhones that debuted in 2013 and 2014 and brushed off customers with an iPad Mini from the same years or a 2013 original iPad Air.
According to Apple, iOS 13 – likely shot out of Cupertino in September – will be supported on these devices:
1. iPhone XS, XS Max, XR 
2. iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus 
3. iPhone 7 and 7 Plus 
4. iPhone 6S and 6S Plus 
5. iPhone SE 
6. iPod Touch, 7th generation 
7. [iOS 13 will also be pre-installed on the new iPhone(s) Apple introduces this fall.
At times, Apple has held the iOS support line for a year – it did just that in 2018 when the list was identical to the 2017’s. But more often, the company strikes the oldest devices, belatedly acknowledging what many users had concluded earlier: that the hardware couldn’t execute the new OS and run recent apps without shifting into tortoise mode.

This year’s cull was much like 2017’s, when that fall’s iOS 11 declined to run on the then-aged iPhone 5 , iPhone 5C  and 4th generation iPad .
iPadOS dismisses a few tablets
The new spin-off from iOS that Apple’s billed as “[built on] the same foundation as iOS, adding powerful new capabilities and intuitive features specific to the large display and versatility of iPad,” has its list of supported tablets, grouped from the once-master line-up of all mobile devices.
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2015-2018
- 11-inch iPad Pro 2018
- 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2017
- 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2016
- iPad, 5th and 6th generations 2017-2018
- iPad mini, 5th generation 2019
- iPad mini 4-2015
- iPad Air, 3rd generation 2019
- iPad Air 2- 2014
As on the iOS-iPhone side of Apple, this year’s iPad-iPad platform had a few no-shows that were on the 2018 list, although the latter retained 2015’s devices. These models have been winnowed:
iPad Mini 2 and Mini 3 (2013-2014)
iPad Air (original, 2013)
Apple also listed the Mac models that will run the upcoming macOS 10.15, aka Catalina, when it delivers that upgrade. For its computer line, Apple will retain the prior year’s models on the new version’s support list.
iOS 13 and iPadOS will be offered as a free over-the-air upgrade when they launch this fall.
