Earlier today, Apple officially unveiled the next major software updates for its platforms at this year’s WWDC. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a large range of Apple’s devices support updating to the upcoming updates. So you can find a list below of the supported devices that will be updated later this year.
Apple is proud of the fact that so many of its older devices get new software whenever it arrives. It’s certainly one of the things that helps iOS stand out against the leading competition in Android. This year is not any different. Apple officially unveiled iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and macOS 12 Monterey. And, at the same time, confirmed which devices will be eligible for the new software when it launches this fall.
The trend is simple enough: if your device was able to be upgraded to iOS 14, you’ll be able to upgrade to iOS 15. But, the full list of compatible devices for each platform is below.
