iPhone OS 1

Main article: iPhone OS 1

Apple announced iPhone OS 1 at the iPhone keynote on January 9, 2007, and it was released to the public alongside the original iPhone on June 29, 2007.[3] No official name was given when the iPhone was released; Apple marketing literature simply stated the iPhone ran a mobile version of "OS X".[4] During the development phase of iPhone OS 1, there were at least 17-18 different concepts developed. Many on the team were still hung up on the idea that everyone would want to type on a hardware keyboard, not a glass screen. The idea of introducing a complete touch screen was very novel to everyone.[5] Many user interfaces were prototyped, including the multi-touch click-wheel. Although many thought it was a waste of time, Apple CEO Steve Jobs insisted on prototyping all concepts before the Mac OS-X-based version of the operating system was selected. The release of iPhone OS 1.1 brought support for the iPod Touch (1st generation). iPhone OS 1.1.4 is the final version of iPhone OS 1 for the iPhone, and iPhone OS 1.1.5 is the final version of iPhone OS 1 for the iPod Touch (1st generation). It was succeeded by iPhone OS 2 on July 11, 2008. It became unsupported on May 18, 2010.

iOS 4

Main article: iOS 4

Apple announced iOS 4 in March 2010 and it was released to the public on June 21, 2010, alongside the iPhone 4. It was the first version of the operating system to be called "iOS", due to the iPad being released. With this release, Apple dropped support for the original iPhone and the 1st gen iPod Touch, which is the first time Apple had dropped support for any device in an iOS release. The iPhone 3G and the 2nd generation iPod Touch were capable of running iOS 4, but had more limited features. For example, both devices lacked multitasking, and the ability to set a custom home screen wallpaper. This was also the first major release to be free of charge for iPod Touch users. The release of iOS 4.2.1 brought compatibility to the original iPad and was the final release supported on the iPhone 3G and 2nd generation iPod Touch due to huge performance issues. The release of iOS 4.3 added support for the iPad 2.[11][12] It was succeeded by iOS 5 on October 12, 2011.

With this release, Apple did not drop support for any iOS devices, but support for Apple TV (3rd generation) has been dropped following the release due to 32-bit deprecations. Therefore, iOS 9 was supported on the iPhone 4S onwards, iPod Touch (5th generation) onwards, the iPad 2 onwards, and the iPad Mini (1st generation) onwards. However, iOS 9 has limited support on devices with an Apple A5 or A5X processor: the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation), iPad Mini (1st generation), and iPod Touch (5th generation).[citation needed] This release made the iPad 2 the first device to support six major releases of iOS, supporting iOS 4 through iOS 9. Despite Apple's promise of better performance on these devices, there were still widespread complaints that the issue had not been fixed. iOS 9.3.5 is the final release on the iPod Touch (5th generation), the Wi-Fi-only iPad 2, the Wi-Fi-only iPad (3rd generation), and the Wi-Fi-only iPad Mini (1st generation). iOS 9.3.6 is the final release on the iPhone 4S, the Wi-Fi + cellular iPad 2, the Wi-Fi + cellular iPad (3rd generation), and the Wi-Fi + cellular iPad Mini (1st generation). iOS 9 is the last version to run on iPhones and iPads with 30-pin connector. iOS 9 was succeeded by iOS 10 on September 10, 2016.

Apple announced iOS 10 on June 13, 2016, at its annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event, and it was released to the public on September 13, 2016, alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With this release, Apple dropped support for devices using an A5 or A5X processor: the iPhone 4S, the iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation), iPad Mini (1st generation), and iPod Touch (5th generation) due to hardware limitations and performance issues, ending software support for iPhones and iPads with 30-pin connector and 3.5-inch display. iOS 10 has limited support on devices with 32-bit processors: the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and iPad (4th generation).[citation needed] However, the iPhone 5S onwards, iPod Touch (6th generation), iPad Air onwards, and the iPad Mini 2 onwards are fully supported. The release of iOS 10.2.1 brought support for the iPad (5th generation), and iOS 10.3.2 brought support for the iPad Pro (10.5-inch) and the iPad Pro (12.9-inch, 2nd generation). iOS 10.3.3 is the final supported release for the iPhone 5C and the Wi-Fi—only iPad (4th generation), while iOS 10.3.4 is the final supported release for the iPhone 5 and the iPad (4th generation) with cellular modem. iOS 10 is the final iOS version to run on 32-bit processors, including non–Touch ID iPhones and the final iOS version for devices with 64-bit processors to support Windows Vista. It is also the final version of iOS to run 32-bit apps. It was succeeded by iOS 11 on September 19, 2017.

Apple announced iOS 13 on June 3, 2019, at its annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event, and it was released to the public on September 19, 2019, alongside the iPhone 11 series (11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max). The principal features include an option for dark mode and Memoji support for A9+ devices. The NFC framework now supports reading several types of contactless smartcards and tags.[29] The iPad gains several tablet-oriented features, and its operating system has been rebranded as iPadOS; iPadOS 13 was announced at the 2019 WWDC as well. With this release, Apple dropped support for all devices with less than 2 GB of RAM, which included the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6/6 Plus, sixth-generation iPod Touch, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Air. iOS/iPadOS 13 has limited support on devices with the A8/A8X chip (which are the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4).[30] However, all other devices from the iPhone 6S/6S Plus and later, iPod Touch (7th generation), iPad Pro (1st generation), iPad (5th generation), and iPad Mini (5th generation) and later are fully supported (A9 and A10 devices have almost full support, while those with A11 and later chips have full support). iOS 13 brought support for the iPhone 11 series and the second-generation iPhone SE, while iPadOS 13 brought support for the seventh-generation iPad, the iPad Pro (12.9-inch, 4th generation), and the iPad Pro (11-inch, 2nd generation). It was succeeded by iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 on September 16, 2020.

Apple announced iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 on June 22, 2020, at its annual WWDC 2020 event, with a developer beta released on the same day and a public beta released on July 9, 2020.[31] iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 were released on September 16, 2020, alongside the eighth-generation iPad and fourth-generation iPad Air. All devices that supported iOS 13 also support iOS 14. This makes the iPad Air 2 the first device to support seven versions of iOS and iPadOS, from iOS 8 to iPadOS 14. Some new features introduced in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 include redesigned widgets that can now be placed directly on the home screen (only for iOS); the App Library, which automatically categorizes apps into one page; Picture-in-Picture in iPhone and iPod Touch; and the CarKey technology to unlock and start a car with NFC. iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 also allow the user to have incoming calls shown in banners rather than taking up the whole screen (the latter view is still available as an optional function).[32] It was succeeded by iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 on September 20, 2021.

The release of iPadOS 14.0 brought support for the 8th generation iPad and the 4th generation iPad Air and the release of iOS 14.1 brought support for the iPhone 12 series. iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 have limited support on devices with A8/A8X, A9/A9X, and A10 Fusion chips, whereas devices with A10X Fusion and A11 Bionic chip have almost full support, and devices with A12 Bionic chip and later have full support.[citation needed]

Apple announced iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 on June 7, 2021, at its annual WWDC 2021 event, with a developer beta released on the same day and a public beta released a few weeks later, at the end of June 2021. All devices that supported iOS 13, iPadOS 13, iOS 14, and iPadOS 14 also support iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. This makes the iPad Air 2 the first device to support eight versions of iOS and iPadOS, from iOS 8 to iPadOS 15. However, iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 have limited support on devices with A8/A8X, A9/A9X, A10/A10X Fusion, and A11 Bionic chips, which include the iPhone 6S, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone SE (1st generation), iPod Touch (7th generation), iPad (5th generation), iPad (6th generation), iPad (7th generation), iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro (1st generation), and iPad Pro (2nd generation).[39] The release of iOS 15.4 brought support for the iPhone SE 3rd generation, while the release of iPadOS 15.4 brought support for the new iPad Air 5th generation. iOS 15 is the final version of iOS to work on the iPod Touch line, as the final model, the 7th generation, was discontinued without a successor. iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 were succeeded by iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 on September 12, 2022.

See also: iPadOS 16 and iPadOS version history § iPadOS 16

Apple announced iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 on June 6, 2022, at its annual WWDC 2022 event, with a developer beta released on the same day. With this release, Apple dropped support for iPhone and iPod Touch models with A9 and A10 Fusion chips (the iPhone 6S/6S Plus, the first-generation iPhone SE, the iPhone 7/7 Plus, and the seventh-generation iPod Touch) and iPad models with A8 and A8X chips (namely the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4). In other words, this iOS release dropped support for iPhones without Neural Engine, without wireless charging, with 3.5mm headphone jack, 4-inch display, and the iPod Touch product line as a whole. iOS 16 has limited support on iPhone models with A11 Bionic chips, namely the iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X,[40] while iPadOS 16 has limited support on iPad models with A9/A9X and A10/A10X Fusion chips, such as the fifth-, sixth-, and seventh-generation iPads, and the first- and second-generation iPad Pros. However, devices with A12/A12X Bionic chips or newer, such as the iPhone XS/XS Max, iPhone XR, second-generation iPhone SE, eighth-generation iPad, fifth-generation iPad Mini, third-generation iPad Air, third-generation iPad Pro, and later iterations of any of these devices, are fully supported (A12 and A13 models have almost full support, while A14 and later models have full support). iOS 16 is the first version of iOS since 2007 to be supported only on iPhone since the iPod Touch was discontinued.
