iOS 13 system requirements: Will iOS 13 run on your iPhone or iPod touch?

iOS 13 has just been previewed, but can your existing iPhone run the new operating system? 

Well, if you have an iPhone from the iPhone 6S and above you’ll be fine – also if you have a new, latest-generation iPod touch. The iPhone SE also survives to die another day as it has essentially the same internal components as the iPhone 6S.

What about the iPad we hear you cry? Well, things have got a little more complicated.

Apple has announced it is splitting off the iPad operating system as iPad OS. Apple wants to provide iPad users with more complex, PC and Mac-like features and obviously believes a separate approach is the best way to do this without making the software too bloated for phones. 

The finished version of iOS 13 will be available for general download in September but a public beta version will be available in July.

All the iOS devices that support iOS 13

Here’s a list of all the supported devices, just so you can double check whether your iPhone or iPod touch will be able to run iOS 13 ahead of it going live.
