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.

Apple’s iOS 5 Goes Live – How to Update

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that you would like to upgrade to IOS 5, you can do it now. Apple made the upgrade available about 1 pm (eastern) today.

Upgrading is easy. You can make it even easier by doing two preliminary preparations:

1. Download iTunes 10.5. This version just became available last night, so you probably don’t have it yet. To get it, start  iTunes, click on the About menu option, and click on Check for Updates. Then follow the on-screen directions to complete the update.

2. Update all of your applications.

Once that is done, you can proceed to the iOS 5 update:

1. Plug your iPhone (3GS or 4), iPad (original or iPad 2), or iPod touch (3rd or 4th generation) into your computer with the USB cord.

2. If iTunes doesn’t open automatically, launch it by clicking on the iTunes icon.

3. On the left side of the iTunes windows, find your device, for example, “Sandy’s iPad,” and click it.

4. Click on the button that says “Update.” Then follow the on-screen directions.

iOS 5 — Apple’s New OS — Update your iPad & iPhone Now

Along with Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 4S, came another very important announcement — iOS 5. This is Apple’s newest operating system. Although it will come preinstalled on the new iPhones when they are released on Oct. 14th, it will be available for other Apple devices tomorrow.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, our iPod touch, you won’t want to miss out on this. It promises to be a fantastic upgrade. And it is FREE!

iOS 5 will work on the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4. It will also work with 3rd and 4th generation iPod touches and both versions of the iPad.

Install it by hooking up your device to iTunes and checking for an update. Once installed you should see a new Notification area, Twitter integration, a new Reminder feature, and improvements to navigation, surfing, messaging, and picture taking.

Apple didn’t say exactly what time the update will be available, but I am going to try to be the first in line!

If you don’t want to be first in line, I understand. Check back here in a day or two for my take on how hard or easy the download was and how worthwhile iOS 5 really is before you download it.
