Will My Old Apple Device Run iOS 7?

Apples new mobile operating system iOS 7 will be available this fall as a free update for Apple mobile devices. Of course, not all older Apple devices will be able to use iOS 7, but most of the newer ones will. Here is a list of the iOS 7 compatible devices. You will see that I’ve listed model numbers after the versions. If you don’t know what version of a product you have, just grab a magnifying glass and look at the back of the device for the model number.

  • iPhone 4, 4S, 5 or later. (A1349, A1332, A1387, A1428 and A1429).
  • iPad 2, iPad Retina or later, and all iPad Mini devices (A1395, A1396, A1397, A1416, A1430, A1403, A1458, A1459, A1432, A1454, A1455, and A1460).
  • iPod Touch 5th generation devices (A1421)

 

Apple’s New iOS 7 Will Make Your Apple Device Better Than Ever

The biggest announcement at this week’s Apple developer’s conference was the announcement of a new operating system for Apple’s mobile devices like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. iOS 7 will have a new cleaner look and plenty of new functionality. Siri will be smarter and you will have the option of using a male voice as well as the current female voice. There will be an activation lock to deter thieves and the photo app will be improved with filters and in-app editing.

Two new features that I applaud are the ability to get to the settings menu by swiping up with your thumb and the fact that now app will update automatically. There will also be a big update to Safari. In fact, if you have a compatible device, you will have a lot to look forward to with iOS 7. It will be available as a free update this fall.
