As a reminder, this is not an official list.
Several sources claim that iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 versions will not support the original iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, 4th generation iPad mini, and 2nd generation iPad Air.
Most likely, A9 devices will really not support the new version of the system. As a reminder, iOS 13 no longer supports iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPod touch 6th generation, iPad Air 1st generation, and iPad mini 3rd generation.
IOS 14 supports all the same models as iOS 13.
When will Apple release iOS 16?
Each year, Apple hosts a developer conference in June.
The conference is called the “Worldwide Developers Conference” or WWDC, and this year it will take place from June 13-17. As in 2021, the conference will be held online.
Although the conference is aimed at developers, anyone can watch it. On it, the company will present the following system updates for their devices.
