For every iOS update, users with an iPhone and an iPad will ask if their model will be compatible with the new release. Unlike Android, Apple has a slightly longer update policy, but as always, the support for a certain model is bound to end. In this regard, the alleged minimum requirements related to the installation of iOS 13 has emerged on the network.
Taking a slight step back, iOS 12 was available only on Apple iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPod Touch (6th generation), iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Air and iPad Air 2 and of course for the latest models.
According to a report by the editorial staff of The Verifier, it seems that all iOS devices released before 2016 will not receive iOS 13 when it will be released later this year. We should see the new version of iOS introduced during WWDC, which should take place in June.
If the report is correct, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will not receive iOS 13. This means that the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and later will support the update. On the iPad front, the report indicates that iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Air and iPad Air 2 will not be updated .
It must be said, however, that the same report indicates that support for iOS 13 for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE and iPad 4 mini is now “questionable”. We should officially know which models will support iOS 13 and its Dark Mode at WWDC 2019.
