iOS 7 Supported Devices & Compatible Feature List

Jun 10, 2013 - 3 Comments

Obviously iOS 7 looks incredible enough that virtually every single iPhone, iPad, and iPod owner on the planet is going to want to run the amazing new iOS on their devices… leading to the big question on everyones minds being, what devices does iOS 7 support? And what new features work on which device? The full lists are below, but it’s safe to assume that basically any semi-new iOS device has full support, though not all devices compatible with iOS 7 will get every single feature (like AirDrop).

Of course, any new and unannounced iOS devices released this fall (likely alongside iOS 7) will also support the major update.
