iOS 12 system requirements: Will iOS 12 run on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? | Apps

Latest Apps and Software News

The iOS 12 public beta has been out for a little while now and it enables you to have a go with the new operating system yourself. 

But can your existing iOS device run the new OS? 

Well, if you have an from the iPhone 5S and above you should be okay. In addition, you should be covered if you own an iPad mini 2 or iPad Air and above. Even the sixth-generation iPod touch gets a bit of iOS 12 love.

The finished version of iOS 12 will be available for general download in “fall” or autumn 2018. Apple has not put a specific date on when the final will be available, but you can expect it to be close to the launch of the new iPhone XS, which will be on 12 September. 

Here's a list of all the supported devices, just so you can double check whether your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will be able to run iOS 12 ahead of it going live:

  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 5s

We are expecting that Apple will launch new iPhone models, which will shop with iOS 12 out of the box. You can find all the rumours about new iPhones right here.

  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (second-gen)
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (first-gen)
  • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • iPad (fifth-gen)
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2

At the moment there's no telling whether there will be a new iPad launched too, but there's indicators of code support for Face ID on the iPad, so it's likely that there's going to be new hardware too before iOS 12 launches.

iOS 12 adds several key new features, including digital wellbeing software, parental controls, better optimised power, sharable AR experiences, new photos, Siri Shortcuts, more notification control, third-party app support in CarPlay, group FaceTime and a lot more.
