  8. Colin says:

    Bought brand new iPhone 6plus less than 3 years ago from John Lewis retailer.Now Apple will not give me update to iOS 13.I was intending next purchasing an Apple laptop costing over £1200.Forget this Apple. I will look instead at chrome books.Why don’t you do the same. Colin

  9. Anon says:

    Just because an iOS device is not supported does not mean that you cannot continue to use it. I wouldn’t hesitate to continue using an iPhone 6 or earlier if it still works well. I don’t see anything compelling about iOS 13 so I can live without it.

    In January I replaced my 5 year old 5S with a brand new 6S 32GB. ($200 from Consumer Cellular.) The 5S is still going strong even with its original battery. But I wanted the slightly larger display, upgraded camera and the headphone jack before the 6S becomes unavailable.

    I plan on using the 6S for at least 5 years and probably longer. I always use an Otterbox Defender case so that 5S really is in mint condition when removed from its case. The person who buys it will only need to replace the battery at some point to have an iPhone that will last them a nice long time and CHEAP to boot!

  10. Ricky Cabrera says:

    I have a IPhone 6s and when l went to update to 13 on General, it says l’m up to date on the operational system. I’m sure l read somewhere that it was compatible. Can anyone correct on this, thx

  11. Chris says:

    Do you think next year iphone se or 6s will benefit from ios 14 ? How can we found out ? What are the rules ? The oldest gets cut off or in this case both ?

  12. Sadev mars says:

    Very disappointed, it’s missing iphone 6. Please give it a update.. please…..

  13. Aliasger says:

    Is ios 13 available in iphone 6 in future??

  14. Royal singh says:

  15. Jomar says:

    The beta website says the iPadOS 13 is released on 24th September My iPhone 7 Plus was updated on 19th September. Perhaps they are finalising from the beta feedback?

  16. Aneeqah says:

    But what about iPad Mini 5 (2019) I can’t find it in software update, please tell how to!?!?😊🧐🧐

  17. Louise says:

    This sucks, you have to get new phones when the one you have is in like new condition and works just fine the way it is. Going to Android next, Apple Sucks !!!

    • Toddo says:

      If you have an iPhone 6 or earlier, it is NOT in like new condition, no matter how much you think it is. It’s a 5 year old phone with a 5 year old processor. Turn it in with your “near mint” Commodore 64 and prepare yourself for Y2K20.

      • Anthony says:

        That’s just dumb. If I unbox an iPhone 6 today that’s never been used, it is in “like new condition”. Regardless of the age of the processor.

        • Q says:

          And you would have that same issue with android. The equivalent phone for samsung (S5) stopped receiving updates multiple versions ago. This is not an Apple only issue. If you bought a 6, expecting it to have up to date technology you are living in the 20th century. 5 years in todays tech world is a lifetime of features.

  18. Person says:

    This Is dumb . iOS 13 wont support iPhone 6 but it supports 6s/6s plus that’s so dumb I hates this !

  19. Zohaib says:

    Can ios 13 install in iPhone 5S

  20. Daniel Ingold says:

    I can‘t Download ios 13

  21. T.muda ghiffary says:

    Can ipad 6 (2018 model) support iOS 13
    And when will be available?

    • Otheno says:

      Yes the iPad 2018 model will support iOS 13 (technically called iPadOS 13) and it will be available around October.

  22. Ron Dennis says:

    Good day very concerned about my iPad Air i called Apple they stated to early to tell if my iPad can get this new update 13 !what do you think ?thanks

    • WEbbles says:

      If your iPad is on the list of supported iOS 13 devices it will be able to run iOS 13, if not it will be on iOS 12 or whatever the supported version is.

      The list of iPad that can run iOS 13 / iPadOS 13 is here:

      iPad Air 2 and iPad Air 3 can run 13

    • Ramon Delgado says:

      Ron, same boat here. Seems like the pattern is only devices with 2 GB of RAM and 64-bit processing can run iPadOS13 and iOS13. So our beloved iPad Air (1st Gen) will not work. So sad because I love this tablet and chose it over the competition, BECAUSE of the product support and build quality. We paid a premium price for this ($499 for the 32 GB when on sale) and now, it is cut off. However, I’m sure app support will continue for at least a few years. Still watching videos, surfing the web and doing social media on iPad 3.

  23. George V says:

    How can I check what model my iPads are? I mean is there a website where you punch your model No. and get it.

  24. Jay says:

    Mistake. Of course iPhone 6 can run iOS 12. I think that was a typo

  25. Sebastian Lionheart says:

    Hi, will the iOS 13 compatible for iPhone 5s? Thanks
