Will your iPhone soon have iOS 14 support?

With an iPhone, you enjoy software updates for a long time. You can often update them for about five years – much longer than with Android phones. Unfortunately, there comes a time when your iPhone flies out of the updates, but there is good news. There is a chance that all iPhones with iOS 13 will also receive iOS 14 support.

iOS 14 support

Last year with iOS 13, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s could not be updated for the first time. With iOS 14 it seemed likely that the iPhone 6s and iPhone SE are no longer supported, but for owners of those phones, the website iPhonesoft has a nice rumor. According to insiders on the French website, all iPhones that can now handle iOS 13 will also receive iOS 14 support.

This means that you can install iOS 14 on the following iPhones:

  • iPhone 11 Pro (Max)
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone XS (Max)
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X.
  • iPhone 8 (Plus)
  • iPhone 7 (Plus)
  • iPhone 6s (Plus)
  • iPhone SE

IOS 14 can also be installed on the iPod touch (7th generation). And of course, the iPhone 2020 models support iOS 14, including the upcoming iPhone SE 2.

It would not be the first time that no iPhone flies out of the updates. Two years ago this happened with iOS 12. The iPhonesoft website already accurately predicted that all iPhones with iOS 11 could also handle iOS 12. But last year the same French website incorrectly reported that the iPhone SE does not receive iOS 13 support, so we take the rumor with a few grains of salt.

iPadOS 14

The sources of the French website also say they know which iPads get iPadOS 14 support. Apple would no longer update iPads with the old A8 and A8X chips. The following iPads will therefore not receive iPadOS 14 support:

  • iPad mini (4th generation)
  • iPad Air (2nd generation)

iPads with an A9 chip or newer can still be updated. These are the following models:

  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • 11-inch iPad Pro
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
  • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • iPad (7th generation)
  • iPad (6th generation)
  • iPad (5th generation)
  • iPad mini (5th generation)
  • iPad Air (3rd generation)
