The compatibility of hardware with new iOS releases reduces, and with the release of iOS 9, iPads and iPhones are currently at the bottom of the iOS table.
If you have any iOS device, you should be really interested in whether your device is fully compatible with iOS 9 operating system. The following is a list of Apple devices which are termed to be fully compatible with the trendy mobile operating system.
These include iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone5s, IPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The compatibility also includes iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus released on September 9th and iPhone 6c and iPhone 7 which are set for launch at a later date.
iPad devices under this category include the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad Air. iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro which are set for release at a later date are also in the list of compatible iPads. Generally, iPads are said to be fully compatible with iOS 9.
iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3 are in the list of compatible iPad mini devices. iPad mini 4 set for launch at a later date is also compatible.
iOS device under this category includes the 5th generation iPod touch.
If your iOS device falls under any of the above listed devices, you have all reasons to smile as you await the iOS 9 pre-installed devices, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to be availed for purchase on September 25th. Apple made it clear that any iOS device that successfully runs iOS 8 can also run iOS 9.
For those who don’t want to take part in the hassle of downloading and installing iOS 9, you may opt for iPhone 6c or iPhone 7 which come pre-installed with the new mobile OS. For those with an iPad, you won’t have to worry about compatibility issues as iPads can last for longer period of time before being deemed not strong. Normally, iPads last for three iOS launches before being culled. iPad 2 remains to be a good example; a second generation iPad launched early 2011 and can still support iOS 8 although it’s a bit slower.
Most probably, iPad 2 could be done away with very soon as poor performance issues for iPad 2 running iOS 8 have been experienced over the years.
