iOS 14 Supported Devices. In the article, we will analyze the main features of iOS 14, which devices will support the update, and also name the supported iPadOS devices.
There is almost no doubt that Apple will traditionally present the new iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 at a presentation that will open the next WWDC 2020 (22th June) developer conference – it will, as usual, be held in June this year. According to sources in the French site iPhonesoft, the new version of the iOS operating system will be supported by absolutely all the same devices as iOS 13 last year. But this does not concern the new iPadOS – it will receive an abbreviated list of supported tablets.
According to rumors, iOS 14 will be able to install even on the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s. All other devices introduced since then will also be supported.
iOS 14 Beta Release Date: 22 June
Which iPhones will get iOS 14
iOS 14 will be supported by many iPhones. It will support all iPhone models released from 2015 (iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus) . Thus, the list will look as follows

- iPhone 11 Pro/11 Pro Max/11
- XS/XS Max
- 8/8 Plus

- 6s/6s Plus

Of course, iOS 14 will also support all iPhone 2020, including the affordable iPhone SE 2020, as well as the iPhone 12 line. It is possible that Apple will eventually abandon support for iPhone SE and iPhone 6s – it depends only on the following several months of development and success in testing new features on older devices. But today she has no such plans.
