iOS 14: These iPhones could still support Apple’s latest update

We all know that Apple’s smartphones aren’t exactly the most bang-for-buck options, especially on paper. But ask any fanboy, and they’ll tell you that iPhones generally last longer, with better software support and everything that comes with it. And there’s a degree of truth to that, if a recent rumour is to be believed. According a report, iOS 14 is set to be compatible with all iPhones that support iOS 13—which is certainly good news for those of you who use older iPhones.

That includes the iPhone SE and the iPhone 6s, along with newer iPhones, while the iPod Touch 7th generation is also included. However, it’s worth noting that the iPhone SE and the iPhone 6s might still be removed from the compatible list due to the next generation of iPhones. At the moment, the potential list is as follows:

  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • 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)

Meanwhile, the report also alleges that the iPad Mini 4 won’t support iOS 14, along with the iPad Air 2. iPadOS could be supported by the following:

  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2018)
  • 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ (2018)
  • 10.5-inch ‌iPad Pro‌
  • 9.7-inch ‌iPad Pro‌
  • ‌iPad‌ (7th generation)
  • ‌iPad‌ (6th generation)
  • ‌iPad‌ (5th generation)
  • ‌iPad‌ mini (5th generation)
  • iPad Air (3rd generation)

While iOS 14 is bound to be supported by the majority of newer devices in the lists above, it’s worth noting that (the source) has “leaked” predictions on iOS compatibility before—inaccurately. Previously, the site claimed that the iPhone SE wouldn’t support the upgrade to iOS 13, which was incorrect.

As of now, however, it’s still a beacon of hope for current iPhone SE users that Apple will roll out one last major update for the smartphone—first released almost 4 years ago. However, there is a rumoured “iPhone SE 2” that is set to be released, that could feature a similarly compact size (and display), while being powered by a flagship-class iPhone 11 processor.
