The latest version of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system -- iOS 10 -- has now been officially announced by the iPhone maker during its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) held in the city of San Francisco in California. iOS 10 is sure to generate some buzz especially with the wide range of features that Craig Federighi, the senior vice president of Apple’s Software Engineering division, highlighted on stage at the 2016 WWDC. Some of the soon to be talked about features include an enhanced Siri, facial recognition, an improved Messages app, and a redesigned Apple Music interface, among many others.
It is hard to imagine the iOS 10 not becoming a hit for Apple, but iOS mobile users would do well to note that not all devices from the tech giant, especially those compatible with iOS 9 (released in September of last year), are powerful enough to support the newest version of iOS. Owners of iPhone 4s devices in particular will definitely have some decisions to make in the near future.
So which Apple devices are expected to support iOS 10? Here is the full list:
Please note that the devices listed below are not compatible with iOS 10:
The iPhone 4s (released in 2011), and older iPhone models
The original iPad tablet (released in 2010)
The 4th Generation iPod Touch (released in 2010)
Apple is planning to launch a global roll out of iOS 10 in September of this year. But for those who want to experience iOS 10 before that, the tech giant will be releasing a public beta version of the mobile operating system in July of this year.
