Apple has revealed its latest software builds for all its devices at its WWDC 2020 event, which includes iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, and macOS Big Sur. Still, the new builds won’t be available to all Apple’s compatible hardware yet, as similar to what happens every year, some devices did not make the cut.
Here are the software that will be getting an upgrade this year. When it comes to iOS, every device running iOS 13 will be upgraded to iOS 14. Same, all devices now running iPadOS 13 will be getting the new version of the operating system.
For iOS 14, that includes these devices:
- iPhone 11
- iPhone 11 Pro
- iPhone 11 Pro Max
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone XR
- iPhone X
- iPhone 8
- iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone SE – 1st generation
- iPhone SE – 2nd generation
- iPod touch – 7th generation
In the meantime, iPadOS 14 will be available to all of these tablets:
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch – 4th generation
- iPad Pro 11-inch – 2nd generation
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch – 3rd generation
- iPad Pro 11-inch – 1st generation
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch – 2nd generation
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch – 1st generation
- iPad Pro 10.5-inch
- iPad Pro 9.7-inch
- iPad – 7th generation
- iPad – 6th generation
- iPad – 5th generation
- iPad mini – 5th generation
- iPad mini 4
- iPad Air – 3rd generation
- iPad Air 2
The most strikes are coming to the Apple Watch series as watchOS 7 will only be available on the Apple Watch Series 3, Series 4, and Series 5, which means the Series 1 and Series 2 models will lose support. Moreover, the Cupertino-based tech giant has mentioned that not all features are accessible on all devices, meaning that even if the Apple Watch you own is getting the upgrade, it might not receive all the new features. It all depends on how old the device is.
Finally, the macOS Big Sur upgrade is going to be available on the following Mac devices:
- MacBook – 2015 and later
- MacBook Air – 2013 and later
- MacBook Pro – late 2013 and later
- Mac mini – 2014 and later
- iMac – 2014 and later
- iMac Pro – 2017 and later — i.e., all models
- Mac Pro – 2013 and later
The devices not compatible with the latest macOS update are 2012 MacBook Airs, the mid-2012 and early-2013 MacBook Pros, the 2012 and 2013 Mac minis, and 2012 and 2013 iMacs.
If you’re not sure whether your device will get the upgrade or not, you can verify this in Apple’s guide.
