After the great success of the iOS 11, which was estimated to have been applied to a record-breaking 52 percent of all the extant Apple devices, Apple is looking forward to the future where the iOS 12 will be released. Having already shed the burden of the 32-bit apps, this list of iOS 12 compatibility should help you identify all the devices that will support the OS and the ones that will not.
iOS 12 compatibility and modern technology
The latest iOS will be one of the most advanced operating systems ever designed. This will mark the first time that the latest technology will be taken into account as far as modern technology is concerned. Remember that last year, when the iOS 11 was released, there was a need for a new list which was to be drawn up. Simply put, the teams at any big company like Apple are running a race against time. The software and the hardware teams are fighting a race with each other and against time so that they are not really involved in the logistics.
Besides, when the Apple iPhone 5c was pushed out of the compatibility list, the question mark was put on the survival of the Apple iPhone 5c. In fact, this year, the possibility of the iPhone 5S being rendered extinct is a distinct one and one that cannot be disregarded easily. With this in mind, this is the list for you.
iOS 12 compatibility list: The complete list
The complete list includes the following Apple iPhones:
- iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 5s
Note: There is a distinct possibility that the Apple iPhone 5S may be eventually phased out. Should that happen, you will have to ensure that you are not on the wrong side of the digital divide. Therefore, either buy a more modern device or continue using the iOS 10.
