Apple Drops Support For Older iPads, iPhone, iPod

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016 by | Filed Under: In The News, iOS, Smartphones

With the introduction of iOS 10, Apple will be dropping support for some of its most popular devices.  These devices will continue to work, but they won’t be able to use any of the new features.


Here’s what won’t work with iOS 10.


iPad mini


iPad 3rd generation


iPhone 4s



iPod touch 5th generation

The good news is that it will work with the following devices:


iPhone 6s

iPhone 6s Plus

iPhone 6

iPhone 6 Plus

iPhone SE

iPhone 5s

iPhone 5c

iPhone 5


iPad Pro 12.9-inch

iPad Pro 9.7-inch

iPad Air 2

iPad Air

iPad 4th generation

iPad mini 4

iPad mini 3

iPad mini 2


iPod touch 6th generation

iPad sales have been slow lately and this could be a move on Apple’s part to push users into getting newer models.
