If Apple announces iOS 14 in June, as expected, a new rumor claims that it will support all of the same iPhones as iOS 13. The report comes via French site iPhonesoft and while it does have form for being accurate, that doesn’t mean this will definitely pan out.

Normally Apple culls support for older devices when new versions of iOS arrive, so it’s been expected that the iPhone SE would not be part of the iOS 14 lineup.

But this report says everything will remain the same as iOS 13, leaving quite a lengthy list of supported iPhones. Especially when you throw in whatever new handsets are announced later this year.

If the report is indeed accurate we can expect the following current iPhones to be supported.

  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPod touch (7th gen.)

As for the iPad, we also expect iPadOS 14 to be announced this coming WWDC in June. And while iOS 14 isn’t going to remove anything, the same French report has the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 being nixed from the list of supported devices. That would mean the end of support for Apple’s A8 and A8X, for those keeping track.

Again, if accurate that means we can expect the following iPads to be supported by iOS 14. Plus anything announced this year, too.

  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • 11-inch iPad Pro
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
  • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • iPad (7th generation)
  • iPad (6th generation)
  • iPad (5th generation)
  • iPad mini (5th generation)
  • iPad Air (3rd generation)

We’ll know for sure in June, with Apple likely to hold its annual WWDC event. That’s when iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 will surely be announced, with initial betas also being made available to developers.
