A Complete List of All The iOS 12 Supported Devices Based on What We Know So Far

Posted by on

Now that the wait for the iOS 11 is officially over, and around the world, customers are waxing eloquent on the great features of the latest flagship operating system from Apple. Indeed, now that the wait is over, the wait for the iOS 12 starts. Which is why we decided to make this list of the iOS 12 supported devices, also known as the iOS 12 compatible devices.

iOS 12 Supported Devices

Why do we need a list of iOS 12 supported devices?

Well, to begin, it must be remembered that a company like Apple has equally efficient software and hardware teams, which means that they are constantly locked in a race against time and with each other as well. Sometimes, the software team goes ahead and sometimes the hardware team excels. This is because technology is forever moving forward and it does not stop for any force or man.

Second, Apple runs a company. The sole operating reason for a company to exist is to garner a profit. If Apple keeps on supporting all the existing Apple devices year after year, no one will buy the newer Apple devices. Besides, keep in mind the point we made in the preceding paragraph: that the advent of technology is guaranteed. This is why the iOS 11 had dropped all support for the Apple iPhone 5c precisely because of one reason: that it did not support any 64-bit apps. And the latest OS version supports only 64-bit apps, which makes it impossible for the Apple iPhone 5c to be supported. Needless to say, we still do not know if any of the other iPhones will be supported as of now. We hope, for the sake of the customer, that the support for all of the extant devices is continued.

Besides, there is also the need to understand that Apple does not stick to form when deciding on which devices will be supported and on which the support will be dropped. It is therefore impossible to predict if the next device in line, the Apple iPhone 5S, will also lose support.

Tech enthusiast. That is how I would like to present myself to everyone. And I have the habit of reviewing new smartphones and other electronic gadgets which are launched by the respective developers that are based across the world.I have always loved traveling but because I don’t get much time to do it, watching stories set in other places makes up for that. I am a coffee drinker and dream of going on a world tour the year I hit my 30s.


Bravo. You have an informative post bro

Wow nice sum up of iOS 12. Thanks for the supporting devices specially..

Oh wow bro.. this is a good list. i am planning to buy iphone in future and hope this helps to me.. wow again..

Nice article though am not into iOS

I am willing to buy an iPad mini 2, because I got an iPad 3 a few years ago and only got to iOS 9, so I was wondering: How sure are you iPad mini 2 is getting iOS 12?

That is also my question thanks for asking it already

How bout iPod 6?

Just bullshit and speculation. iPad Air will most likely not be supported.

Informative articles are written here.
