iPadOS 17 requires an A10 chip or newer, which means it drops support for iPad models with A9[1] and A9X[2] chips, officially marking the end of support for non-Apple Pencil compatible iPads.[3] iPadOS 17 is also the first iPadOS version to drop support for an iPad with the largest 12.9-inch display and Apple Pencil compatibility. This also marks the third time Apple has dropped 64-bit devices.

Those using A10[4] or A10X[5] SoC have limited support.

Those using A12,[6] A12X,[7] A12Z,[8] or A13[9] SoC get additional features[specify] that are unavailable on older models.

Those using A14[10] or A15[11] SoC have almost full[clarification needed] support.

Those using M1[12] or M2[13] SoC get full support.
