iOS 14 system requirements iPhone and iPod touch device compatibility list

Want to know whether your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch meets the hardware requirements necessary to run the iOS 14 or the iPadOS 14 software update? If so, then be sure to consult this Apple-sanctioned device compatibility list for the iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 software updates.

About iOS and iPadOS 14 updates

Apple previewed the first developer-only betas of iOS and iPadOS 14 during the WWDC 2020 keynote held on Monday, June 22, 2020. Even though both updates won’t release publicly before the fall, the Cupertino tech giant officially confirmed this list of supported devices.

iOS 14 is supported by all the same iPhone and iPod touch models as iOS 13. At the same time, iPadOS 14 was rumored to be trimming its compatible devices list by removing support for the ‌iPad‌ mini 4 and the ‌iPad‌ Air 2 tablets (which were released in September 2015 and October 2014, respectively), but that quite thankfully hasn’t happened.

You can find additional information about the iOS 14 features at apple.com/ios/ios-14-preview/features and about the iPadOS 14 ones at apple.com/ipados/ipados-preview/features.
