The French resource iPhonesoft reports that the next version of iOS will support the same iPhone models as the existing one. Thus, Apple intends to extend the support of models for another year.
The list of expected models begins with the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. Of course, iOS 14 will receive the latest models that are expected this fall. But the iPhone 9 model coming out this spring (it’s the second generation iPhone SE) will debut with iOS 13, but then the device can be updated to the latest version of the operating system.
At the same time, the situation with the iPad looks different. Support for at least two tablet models will cease: iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 2. Thus, the oldest model with the possibility of “growth” to iOS 14 will be the iPad (5th generation).
The operating system itself is expected to be unveiled at WWDC in June, and the first beta will be released shortly thereafter. It has not yet been specified what innovations should be expected in the fourteenth version of the mobile OS, in addition to the already traditional error correction. But obviously, there will be support for 5G and a couple of new functions of artificial intelligence.
It goes without saying that this information should be received with skepticism, because the data have not yet been confirmed even by leaks from Cupertino, not to mention the official statement. It remains only to wait.
