Ready for iOS 15: These iPhones are still compatible

The cat is out of the bag: iOS 15 will be available for free download on September 20th. The manufacturer has already revealed which iPhones and iPads are compatible with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Contrary to previous fears, users of older devices are also allowed to install the update.

Update from September 16, 2021: In the course of the release of iOS 15 on September 20, it should be remembered that, according to Apple, iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 are actually compatible with all iPhones and iPads that are already running with iOS 14 . Also means an iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, an original iPhone SE and an iPad Air 2 do not cause any problems - wonderful.

The video shows the new FaceTime features of iOS 15:

The following iPhones are specifically compatible with iOS 15:

iPhone 12 iPhone 12 mini iPhone 12 Pro iPhone 12 Pro Max iPhone 11 iPhone 11 Pro iPhone 11 Pro Max iPhone XS iPhone XS Max iPhone XR iPhone X iPhone 8 iPhone 8 Plus iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus iPhone 6s iPhone 6s Plus iPhone SE (1st Generation) iPhone SE (2nd generation) iPod touch (7th generation)

And the following iPads for iPadOS 15:

12.9 "iPad Pro (5th generation) 11" iPad Pro (3rd generation) 12.9 "iPad Pro (4th generation) 11" iPad Pro (2nd generation) 12.9 "iPad Pro (3rd generation ) 11 "iPad Pro (1st generation) 12.9" iPad Pro (2nd generation) 12.9 "iPad Pro (1st generation) 10.5" iPad Pro 9.7 "iPad Pro iPad (8th generation) iPad (7th generation) iPad (6th generation) iPad (5th generation) iPad mini (5th generation) iPad mini 4 iPad Air (4th generation) iPad Air (3rd generation) iPad Air 2

The new devices shown at the Apple event (iPhone 13, iPad mini 6 and iPad of the 9th generation) will be delivered with iOS 15 or iPadOS 15.

Original article:

The rumor was already circulating in November, now there are again reports about the "sacking" of various iPhone models - read on the French website iPhoneSoft, which recently announced a new Netflix feature for Apple users. Said iPhones will then no longer be able to install the upcoming update to iOS 15 in autumn 2021.

Apple draws a line: iOS 15 no longer for iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus

Accordingly, the original iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus will no longer be compatible with iOS 15, iOS 14.x is over. All Apple cell phones from the iPhone 7 and up will work with iOS 15. This suggests that at least an Apple A10 is a prerequisite for iOS 15. This fact then also allows predictions about the compatibility of the iPads and also the iPod touch. The latter should still run with iOS 15, as there is an A10 in the case.

For the 3 iPhone models mentioned, the path ends here:

These iPads have to do without

And what about the Apple tablets? Consequently, the iPad mini from 2015, the iPad Air 2 from 2014 and the iPad 5 from 2017 would have to do without iPadOS 15. They each use an Apple A8, A8X and an A9. Ergo: All newer iPads would have no problem with supporting iPadOS 15.

But even if Apple denies access to iOS 15 to all of the devices mentioned, there will probably be some support in the future. For example, the US manufacturer unexpectedly released another update for iOS 12 for the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models that were already "left behind" in December last year. Background: The integration of the COVID-19 encounter messages with regard to the upcoming support of the Corona app. It can therefore be assumed that the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus will also receive smaller service updates in this regard in the future. But there are no more new functions.
