Here is the list of Apple devices that will get iOS 11


We already know what enhancements iOS 11 is going to bring. We also know that it is coming in the fall of this year, presumably around the launch of the next iPhone models. What we have't yet discussed, however, is which of the existing iPhone and iPad models are going to get the iOS 11 update, so let us now shed some light on the matter.

Тhe full list of iOS 11-compatible devices includes the iPhone 5s and newer iPhones, all iPad Air and iPad Pro tablets, the 2017 iPad model, the iPad mini 2 and later models, as well as the 6th generation iPod touch. Here’s is what this list looks like on Apple’s site:


It is interesting to see that the iPhone 5s – a model launched in 2013 – is to be upgraded to the new OS. Android phones, in comparison, get 2 years worth of updates at best. Тhe iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C are obviously not going to get iOS 11, so if you're still holding on to one of those, perhaps it is time to consider upgrading.

You should have in mind that not all iOS 11 features will be available on the devices listed. The recently announced person-to-person payments, for example, and Apple Pay Cash will be available on the iPhone 6 and later iPhone models, but not on the iPhone 5s.

HTC DNA is from 2012... So, equivalent to an iPhone 5 which has official updates up to iOS 10.3.

64bit architecture. Apple has supported older devices for several iterations. Much better than Android OEMs like LG, Samsung, and Blackberry who are behind on some of their Nougat and security updates.

Even google is behind. The nexus 6 will probably only see Nougat and the nexus 5 will stay on Marshmallow whereas you can take your 5S from iOS 7 all the way to 11 and receive all the updates on the same day as everyone else.

BlackBerry isn't behind on security updates for Android, and even Samsung has been doing better than most with security updates for their unlocked flagship handsets. BlackBerry has supported their own BB10 devices from 2013 with the latest OS build, just like Apple has. When you control the OS and the hardware, you can do that.

Don't worry, BlackBerry is just behind in every other category. Blackberry = Hot Trash

Lol, that severe pain that you're feeling in your rectum is the fact that you can't disprove what I said.

Lol, the fact that you have to mimic me only proves that you're suffering from brain damage from all of those iPhone 5s devices that you keep lodging up your rectum so much that they are smashing your skull in.

Desperate for my attention I see. Actually, I was referring to blackberry being behind on version updates, not security updates. BB10 is dead. I never said they didn't support their own devices.

Desperate to troll, I see. You can't help but bring up BlackBerry in every article, even if they don't have anything to so with the article at hand. Those devices having the latest OS build while they wait to get the newest OS build that's in the works would disagree with you. I never said you did say that.

Desperate to pick a fight I see. I named several OEMs. Stop acting like I singled blackberry out. I didn't. You commented as if I did, backtracking aside. I don't think you quite understood my comment. It's ok, I think you are challenged by the truth.

Desperate to deflect from your trolling, I see. You don't mention the other OEM's in articles that have nothing to do with them nearly as much as you do BlackBerry. No I didn't. I mentioned them to make a point. YOU mentioned BlackBerry as if they don't keep up with security updates. It's OK, you're allergic to the facts.

RE: Post #4. Flash (Posts: 249; Member since: 19 May 2017) 64bit architecture. Apple has supported older devices for several iterations. Much better than Android OEMs like LG, Samsung, and Blackberry who are behind on some of their Nougat and security updates. ======================= how many phones must apple support vs what samsung has to support? android oems have atleast more than a dozen of phones to support vs only two a year from apple...supporting very little is easier than supporting many.

Why torture yourself with ancient technology? Even if you could put iOS 11 on a 3GS do you still want to use such a old phone? And if people still want to use old phones like that I question their need to want the newest OS.
