The first information about the future operating systems Apple iOS 14 beta and iPadOS 14 appeared on the Web. The French site iPhoneSoft.fr has published a list of devices compatible with the new Apple OS.
According to rumors, the next version of iOS will support the same iPhone models as iOS 13, while some tablets that have received iPadOS 13 will be left without iPadOS 14.
According to iPhoneSoft.fr, iOS 14 beta will be available on the following devices:
- iPhone 11/11 Pro / 11 Pro Max;
- XS / XS Max;
- 8 / 8 Plus;
- 7/7 Plus;
- 6s / 6s Plus;
- iPod touch (7th generation).
At the same time, the source notes that the list is not final, because Apple may refuse to release updates for iPhone SE and iPhone 6s after the announcement of iPhone 9, which will be held in March.
IPhoneSoft.fr believes that iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 will not receive iPadOS 14. The list of compatible tablets includes:
- 12.9-inch iPad Pros
- 11-inch iPad Pro;
- 10.5-inch iPad Pro;
- 9.7-inch iPad Pro;
- 10.2-inch iPad (7th generation);
- 9.7-inch iPad (6th generation);
- 9.7-inch iPad (5th generation);
- 7.9-inch iPad mini (5th generation);
- 10.5-inch iPad Air (3rd generation).
It is worth noting that in early 2019, the iPhoneSoft.fr website made a mistake in forecasts regarding the compatibility of devices with iOS 13. Then the publication said that iPhone SE will not receive iOS 13.
Apple is expected to introduce iOS 14 beta devices, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, watchOS 7, and macOS 10.16 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June 2020.
