Today at WWDC 2014, Apple released quite a lot of info on the upcoming version of their signature iOS operating system for mobile devices. New features such as the ability to install third-party keyboards, better notifications, and a ton of new developer capabilities will make the update to the new OS more intriguing.
However, not all devices will be receiving the update. The list of compatible devices are:
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 5/5S
- iPhone 5C
- iPod Touch 5th generation
- iPad 2
- iPad with Retina Display (3rd and 4th generation)
- iPad Air
- iPad Mini/Mini with Retina Display
That means if you have an iPhone 4 or below, the first generation iPad, and iPod Touch 4th generation or below, you seem to be out of luck.
With one of the most exciting WWDC’s in recent years, Apple seems to be moving well forward this year. iOS 8 and Yosemite will be available today for developers, and will have a public release in fall of this year.
