Apple has kicked off its annual WWDC event in San Jose today and has made clear their approach towards providing a seamless software experience throughout their device lineup.
The major highlight has to be the all-new iOS 12 update, which Apple has confirmed, will be released to every device running on iOS 11. Given that iOS 11 was filled with bugs and glitches, this is a great way of addressing those shortcomings. This also means that devices like the iPhone 5S which were released way back in September 2013, will still continue to get software support from Apple which is just incredible. Google’s flagship Pixel smartphones on the other hand, still come with just three years of software support. Surely, something Android needs to adopt from it’s rival OS.
iOS 12 Supported Devices List
The list of devices slated to receive the iOS 12 update are –
- iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X
- iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and 5th-gen iPad
- iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Mini 4
- All iPad Pros
- 6th-gen iPod Touch
Apple is surely unmatched when it comes to providing software support for its devices, and continues to impress consumers by providing a solid reason to switch to their ecosystem. With more announcements to come shortly, stay tuned for our coverage of all the major happenings in WWDC 2018.
