iOS 12 Compatibility: List of All Supported Devices
With only a few months’ left iOS 12 release, users are also concerned whether the better, stable and versatile iOS 12 will be compatible with the device they are using, or they need to update their phone to get access to the latest iOS. Though we have not received any hint about the iOS 12 compatibility list, we are more or less sure about the list of compatible Apple gadgets. We need to keep in mind to basic things before jotting down the list of all iOS 12 supported devices.
Firstly, like the iOS 11, iOS 12 is also expected to be compatible with 64bit apps. Therefore, any Apple gadget that does not support the same is sure to be out of the iOS 12 compatibility list. Secondly, with the constant improvement in the field of technology hardware of gadgets are becoming quite sophisticated and to make the best use of it the software is also developing. The new software, on the contrary, does not work with the outdated hardware of the previous iPhone and iPads. And thus the need to update. This makes us realize time and again that change is indeed the only constant.
All that being said, here is the probable list of iPhones compatible with iOS 12
