Full List of iOS 16 Supported iPhone Models

If you find your old but still capable iPhone or iPad left out of iOS 16/iPadOS 16, you are not alone! Apple has decided to remove older but still capable devices from iOS 16 supported list. So, if you are wondering whether or not you will be able to get the latest iteration of iOS, you should check out this complete list.

Complete List of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 iPhone/iPad Models

Spoiler alert! iOS 16 supports iPhone 8 or later. That means your old yet powerful of iPhone 7 Plus will no longer be able to rock the latest version of iOS. While I won’t completely ignore the fact that it would have been a challenge to run the feature-packed iOS 16 on the aging iPhones, finding a way to bring iPhone 7 Series on board might not have been a huge deal for the Cupertino-based company.

iOS 16/iPadOS 16 Worth Upgrading?

Both iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 come with a ton of notable features which make them an exciting upgrade. Aside from boosting the security and privacy aspects, Apple has amped up the customization game as well. One of the highlights of iOS 16 is the super cool lock screen customization that allows you to customize your iPhone’s lock screen to your heart’s liking. Not to mention, the Quick Note is also pretty neat. As for iPadOS 16, I find its Stage Manager a great tool. What’s your take on these brand-new operating systems?
