iOS 13 Hardware Requirements

Apple iPhoneWith the upcoming release of iOS 13 this fall, Apple will once again be revising its list of supported devices. Nothing surprising here, just the usual incremental drops in device support that happen each year:

iPhone support for iOS 13 will be dropping the iPhone 5S, 6, and 6+ base models; the new baseline for support will be the iPhone 6S/SE and up.

iPad support will be dropping the iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 1; the new baselines for support will be the iPad 5+, iPad Mini 4+, iPad Air 2+, and iPad Pro series. Also interesting is that iOS for iPads is becoming a formal branch of iOS – “iPadOS <versionnumber>” – which will make support extra confusing until we all internalize the naming change (and figure out how much impact, if any, it will actually have on tablet-specific app support).

These changes happen each year, and we are waiting for new ongoing hardware updates. Since Apple can announce new updates anytime, we will base our testing on these changes. In the near future, Apple will introduce new models that will run on IOS 13. If you are an avid Apple fan, you can count on us to introduce newer hardware for testing.

Additionally, these Apple products should undergo thorough testing. That’s why we involve you in our work to ensure transparency and set expectations for you as an Apple costumer.

As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or are interested in having us assist you in adding the developer preview of iOS 13 into your software QA testing.
