List of iPhone, iPad and iPhod Touch models supporting iOS 11

September 19, after many months of beta testing, Apple will release a public version of iOS 11. Updating the mobile operating system promises not only a lot of new features but, like every new major version of iOS, the termination of support for some older devices.

If you want to know if your iPhone or iPad is compatible with iOS 11, this article will satisfy your curiosity.

Devices not supported by iOS 11

With the release of iOS 11, Apple will refuse to support 32-bit applications. This means that models of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, based on 32-bit chipsets, will also not be supported. Therefore, the following devices will not be able to install the new version of iOS:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 5c
  • iPad 3
  • iPad 4

IOS 11 compatible devices

All other devices on iOS that were supported on iOS 10 are compatible with iOS 11. Among them:

  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 5s
  • 6th generation iPod Touch

iPad:

  • New 9.7-inch iPad
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2
  • iPad 5

The new system of electronic payments Apple Pay Cash will be supported only by the following devices in the US:

  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPad 5
  • iPad Pro
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad mini 3

Ending support for 32-bit devices goes without saying, given the abandonment of 32-bit applications for iOS.

One of the biggest innovations in iOS 11, the ARKit Augmented Reality toolkit, will be available only on the iPhone and iPad with the A9 or A10 chipset.

  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPad Pro (All three variants and models)
  • New 9.7-inch iPad (2017)

Older iPhone and iPad models based on A8 and other chipsets will not support ARKit, so their owners will not be able to enjoy the delights of augmented reality. Perhaps it’s worth upgrading your device for the sake of ARKit applications?
