French blog iPhoneSoft today reported that they have obtained an exclusive list of devices that will be running iOS 14. According to the blog post, this list was given to the site by an Apple developer that works on the Apple Maps app at Apple.
According to the list published by iPhoneSoft, the following iPhone models are the models that will be supported by iOS 14:
- iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max
- iPhone SE 2 (or iPhone 9)
- iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max
- iPhone XR, XS, XS Max
- iPhone X
- iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
- iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
- iPhone 6S and 6S Plus
- iPhone SE
Although all the iPhones that are running iOS 13 will be using iOS 14, two iPad models will not supported by iPadOS 14, meaning that iPadOS 13 will be the last major update that these models will be receiving.
According to the report, the two models that will be exempt from iPadOS 14 will be the iPad mini 4 and the iPad Air 2, both of which run on the A8 chip from 2014.
However, the following iPad models are the models that will be supported by iPadOS 14.
- iPad Pro 2020
- iPad Pro 11” and 12.9” 2018
- iPad Pro 9.7”, 10.5”, 12.9” (2016 and 2017)
- iPad Air 3
- iPad (7th Generation)
- iPad (6th Generation)
- iPad (5th Generation)
- iPad mini 5
That is all the information that iPhoneSoft shared regarding iOS 14, but it is interesting that Apple are not dropping support for any iPhones with iOS 14. People (including me) were pretty sure that the iPhone SE and the iPhone 6S would be losing support, but clearly Apple are not ready to drop support for those devices just yet.
As will all leaks, take this report with a grain of salt. Apple change their plans all the time, so while these devices may or may not be supported by iOS/iPadOS 14 at the moment, when it comes to the actual release, Apple may have dropped/added support for devices.
