Yesterday Apple sent out invitations to the presentation of iOS 13. Despite the fact that the company has not stated this directly, it is obvious that an update of the mobile OS should be the headliner of the whole event. That’s just the access to it, unfortunately, will not all. presents to your attention a collection of devices whose owners can install iOS 13, and those for whom this possibility might not get it.

iOS 13 promises to be one of the most ambitious updates to the operating system since iOS 7. Despite the fact that to expect from the OS is significant redesign is not necessary, the planned innovations will be extremely resource intensive. As a result, this can lead to the fact that some devices, unfortunately, will be excluded from the list of compatible.

Devices that will get iOS 13

If you believe the rumors, iOS 13 will not get the following devices:

  • iPhone 5s
  • iPhone 6 / 6 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPad Air / Air 2
  • iPad mini 2/3/4

This information is unconfirmed, and so relying on it 100% not worth it. However, we assume that Apple may stop supporting all these devices. Especially possible rejection from further service for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which have only 1 GB of RAM.

Devices that support iOS 13

  • iPhone 6s / 6s Plus
  • iPhone 7 / 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8 / 8 Plus
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone XS / XS Max
  • iPad 2017
  • iPad 2018
  • iPad Air 3
  • iPad mini 5
  • iPad Pro 9.7 / 12.9 (2016)

  • iPad Pro 2018 11 / 12.9 (2018)

Among the most notable innovations 13 iOS include support for mice on an iPad, common apps with the macOS system night theme, and advanced security function for health.

When will iOS 13

It is noteworthy that the release of iOS 13, for the first time over the last few years – could take place in the winter. According to the developer Steven Troughton-Smith, he found out that the code name for iOS 13 – 2019WinterSeed, which can be translated as “the Release in the winter of 2019”. All anything, but the name iOS 12.3, which was released a few weeks ago, was called 2019SpringSeed, which translates as “the Release in the spring of 2019”. Thus, there is a definite pattern, since in iOS 13 we expect the General application of macOS to the test in which Apple may need more time.
