Apple: Not all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch models can be updated to iOS 7

With tech giant Apple having made the latest version of its mobile operating system – the drastically redesigned iOS 7 - available to download for free from Wednesday, reports have revealed that the upgrade to the new iOS version will not be available for all models of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

According to the information shared by Apple, the iOS devices which will be compatible with the new iOS 7 version include both the new iPhone models – iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C – which are scheduled to hit the markets on Friday, September 20.

In addition, the iOS 7 update will also be available for some older iPhone models, including the current iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. With Apple having revealed that the iOS 7 update will not be available for the iPhone 3GS, it will be for the first time that the 3GS model will not be supported by a new iOS update.

Meanwhile, the iPad models which will be supported by the iOS 7 update will include the iPad 2, the third- and fourth-generation iPad with Retina display, as well as the iPad Mini. The original iPad, which was launched in 2010, will not be supported by the update.

Lastly, so far as the iPod Touch is concerned, the iOS 7 update will support only the latest version of the iPod Touch – that is, the fifth-generation models which were launched in 2012.
