New speculation from the French website, iPhonesoft, states that iOS 14 will be compatible with the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and the regular iPhone SE. The site has previously unveiled the rumored compatibility lists fro prior versions of iOS.
The claim also states that the forthcoming variant of iPadOS will allegedly remove support for the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4. Apple is expected to release the new versions of their well-known operating systems at WWDC in June of this year. Therefore, if you are still using an iPhone from 2015, you might get to breathe easy.
As per the report, every iPhone that’s been launched in 2015 or later will be compatible with iOS 14. This contains the iPhone as mentioned earlier devices, as well as newer mobile phones such as the iPhone 7 lineup, the iPhone series, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone 11 lineup. Most definitely, the upcoming iPhone 12 will also be compatible with the iOS 14.
iOS 14 Will Be Compatible With iPhone SE and iPhone 6S Lineup, Among Other Models
Know that this is nothing but a rumor; however, it may come as a breath of fresh air for older iPhones owners if it ends up being correct. Taking into consideration the fact that the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and the original iPhone SE were the last Apple smartphones to feature a headphone jack, many users have decided to keep them for as long as possible.
On the other hand, as per the report, iPadOS is removing support for some older tablets. The 2020 launch of iPadOS will not power the iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 4 anymore, but newer devices will still be allowed to install the latest version for at least one more year, the rumor claims.
Apple usually announces new software at its WWDC conference that takes place every year in June. Therefore, we can expect to see iOS 14 and the latest version of the iPadOS launch at that event. As soon as the operating systems are officially revealed, we will have confirmation as to whether this speculation is correct or not.
