If your device currently runs iOS and iPadOS 13, it’ll run iOS and iPadOS 14, too. No new devices are set to lose support this year.

  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X

  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE (1st generation)
  • iPhone SE (2nd generation)
  • iPod touch (7th generation)

iOS 14 will be out by the last quarter of the year, but a developer preview will be available to Apple Developer Program members starting today. There are plans for a public beta release for all iOS users in July.

While iPadOS 14 will be coming to all of these tablets:

Watch OS

The Apple Watch lineup is not so lucky though. WatchOS 7 will only run on the Apple Watch Series 3, Series 4, and Series 5, with the Series 1 and Series 2 models both set to lose support.

Additionally, Apple warns that “not all features are available on all devices,” This means that even if your Apple Watch is getting the new update, it might not get all the new features depending on how old it is.

Big Sur

Lastly, there’s macOS Big Sur, which will run on the following Mac devices.

  • MacBook (2015 and later)
  • MacBook Air (2013 and later)
  • MacBook Pro (late 2013 and later
  • Mac mini (2014 and later)
  • iMac (2014 and later)
  • iMac Pro (2017 and later — i.e., all models)
  • Mac Pro (2013 and later)

However, there are some devices that will not make the cut.  2012 MacBook Airs, the mid-2012 and early-2013 MacBook Pros, the 2012 and 2013 Mac minis, and 2012 and 2013 iMacs
