The iOS 14 expected to support all the devices currently on iOS 13 – rumours


Apple is releasing the newer version of iOS, the upcoming iOS 14 in June and a recent rumour claims that the new iOS version will be available on all the phones currently running iOS 13. However, iPadOS 14 is likely to trim the list of the supported devices. 

The iOS 14 is likely to make it to the iPhone SE, iPhone 6S and even the iPhone 6S Plus. Any other device launched after that will have access to the new iOS 14. The list of the iPhones that will offer support for the upcoming iOS 14 has been rumoured to include the following models – 

  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone 11
  • 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
  • iPod touch (7th generation)

The new version of the iOS is coming in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference being held in June. However, the rumours also suggest that the  ‌iPhone‌ SE and ‌iPhone‌ 6s can get bumped off from the list. This has more to do with the possibility of the launch of iPhone 12 models – due in September. The iPhone 9 and iPhone SE-2 are also expected to launch in March 2020. 

Apple is likely to launch several new features on iOS 14. Some of them would include a prioritisation of the services like Apple Arcade, Apple TV+, Apple News and Apple Music and also laser-powered time-of-flight 3D rear camera. 

There are a few hardware capabilities that are likely to receive huge improvements. That would mean Apple needs to give a thought to which devices would actually benefit with the launch of iOS 14. However, until the facts come out and we would have to think that the rumours will continue to hold good enough.
