Apple’s upcoming software update is expected to be announced in June at WWDC 2024. iOS 18 may soon end support for some of their iPhones. Apple has a pretty good record of updating their devices for at least five years, meaning devices after 2018 are most likely to receive the upgrade. Today in this article, we will be sharing a guide to help you check what devices will be receiving the iOS 17 upgrade.

Apple will launch iOS 18 during WWDC 2024 in July.

Due to the increase in demand and the increased availability, we can expect many AI features. Apple has been developing its own AI, which it is reportedly internally calling Apple GPT.

iOS 18 is expected to have a lot of AI functionality to compete against Android devices like Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra, OnePlus 12, and Google Pixel 8 Pro. The company may bring a lot of AI features to the on-device process to promote superior privacy promises.

List of iOS 18-Eligible Devices

Reportedly, every device running iOS 17 may get an iOS 18 upgrade.

  • iPhone 15 Series
    • iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max
  • iPhone 14 Series
    • iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • iPhone 13 Series
    • iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12 Series
    • iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • iPhone 11 Series
    • iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone SE Series
    • iPhone SE (2022), iPhone SE (2020), iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR

As for the iPad, devices running with the A10X Fusion chip won’t be upgraded to the latest version of iPadOS. Apple is most likely to end support for iPads running on the A10 Fusion-powered tablet, which includes the 6th and 7th generation iPads.

Despite you getting the iOS 18 upgrade, it doesn’t mean that all the new features will be available on your device because of hardware limitations. AI features do indeed require a lot of CPU power, so a lot of features are going to be cloud-based instead of on-device processing power.

It is technically possible that the device above the iPhone 11 will have AI features since it has a neural engine. Indeed, there are a lot of features that will not be supported, but surely some AI-powered features will be available with iOS 18.

Although the upcoming Apple iPhone 16 series will come pre-installed with iOS 18, a lot of things could change; take it with a grain of salt since it’s not from Apple’s official support.
