iOS 14: which iPhones will get the update?

Apple is expected to announce iOS 14 in June, during the annual Worldwide Developers Conference. As we all know, older iPhones often remain off the list of compatible devices with the latest version of the Cupertino operating system. Apparently, this year, the Californian giant will not leave out any of the iPhones already compatible with iOS 13.

According to the French website iPhoneSoft which cites an internal source to Apple, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE (the oldest to have received iOS 13) will also receive the update to iOS 14 which will debut onboard the next iPhone generation in September. The list – which we have below – is not official, which is why things could change in a few months. The possible exclusion of the iPhone SE would be even more logical if its much-talked-about successor were really to arrive in March, as has long been rumored.

IOS 14 compatible devices would be:

  • 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)

iOS 12.4

We repeat that this is not an official list and that for this reason, it could be subject to variations.

Apple is likely to prioritize access to services in iOS 14, with Apple Arcade, Apple TV+, Apple News and Apple Music becoming ever more important revenue streams for the company, so it would make sense for Apple’s mobile software to continue supporting a wide range of devices.
