iOS 11 Compatibility: The first name that comes to our mind whenever we think of smartphones and other electronic gadgets is Apple. The US-based brand has become a household name for more than almost a decade now since its first inception into the market by its founder. And since then it has taken giants towards establishing itself as one of the leading brands in the world of electronic gadgets.
These days more often not we find Apple on the headlines of the news related to the world of technology. And here we are once again back with all the probabilities and possibilities regarding the latest operating system that is going to come out around sometime during the year 2017.
It involves the upcoming iOS 11 which the experts believe is going to be incredible as far as its features are concerned. The event kicked off on June 5 and lasted until June 9, but it was on the opening day itself on which Apple announced the iOS 11 and all its features. But what people across the world are concerned with is which Apple device is going to be compatible with the new operating system. So here is our full list of iOS 11 Compatible devices.
iOS 11 Compatibility for iPhones
The latest update of the software being rolled for in the month of September this year, it will take a while for the iOS 11 to come out. The new iOS 11 is not due to come out before September, and it might even be brought out alongside the upcoming iPhone 8. However, it is the older models that we are mostly worried about. As always, not all previous Apple devices will be compatible with the new operating system. So while the iOS 11 will be downloadable on multiple Apple devices besides the anniversary edition iPhone (which will launch with the latest OS itself), only a select few models will be able to support the new platform.The problem is that at this moment, we do not quite know for sure which previous iOS-based devices will be avail the iOS 11 download. But one can always speculate, and based on that, we have made a few deductions.
The users could update their gadgets to iOS without much of a problem. But many of the users, particularly those who are using Apple iPhone versions lower than that of the Apple iPhone 5S will definitely face a bit of trouble while updating because their smartphones might not be compatible with the upcoming software update from Apple. The Apple iOS 11 operating system will probably be made available to the users of iPhone 5S and its successors. The list of Apple iPhones which will be compatible with the iOS 11 is as follows:
iPhone 6 Plus
iPhone 6S Plus
iPhone 7 Plus
iOS 11 Compatibility for iPads
All the users of the Apple iPads will also not be able to update their tabs to the latest upcoming software update from Apple. As of now it is predicted that both the 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch versions of the Apple iPad Pro are going to be compatible with the iOS 11. The upcoming Apple iPad Pro 2 will also be among those devices which can be upgraded to iOS 11 along with other devices like the iPad Mini 3 and 4, iPad Air and Air 2. Here is the list of all the iPads that will be compatible with the iOS 11 software update. So these are the devices which would pass the iOS 11 Compatibility Test with flying colors
iPad Mini 3
iPad Mini 4
iPad 4th Generation
iPad Air 2
iPad Pro 2
The Apple iOS 10 update was only available to the iPod 6th Generation. And the way things stand now, it is highly unlikely that the trend will change and the iPod 6th Generation is going to be the only iPod that will be compatible with the latest iOS 11 update of the operating system.
So this is how it stands for the time being. Alongside this, we are expecting the upcoming iPhone devices and the iPads will come with the iOS 11 operating system right out of the box. The Apple iPhone 8 is definitely going to be one of those. However, it remains to be seen whether the upcoming version of the iPhones will come with iOS 11 compatibility or not because of the fact that the release of the iPhone 8 might take place ahead of the official release of the iOS 11 operating system. But other than that the list of devices provided above is going to be the one that will be compatible with the iOS 11 operating system
