Apple's New Software Drops Sports For Some Old (&Not the old) Hardware

Apple plans to launch new versions of its smartphone, tablet, and desktop operating systems this fall, with beta releases of iOS 16, iPad 16, and macOS 13 Ventura scheduled to drop in July.

But 13 is additionally dropping support for a few older devices. Still, exploitation associated iPhone 7 or an older model? No iOS sixteen for you. Somewhat more surprisingly though, macOS Ventura can solely run on Macs released in 2017 or later.Apple has traditionally done a way higher job than most different phone makers when it comes to offering long-term support for older smartphones. At this point, Apple could also be ending OS updates for two generations of phones (the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 were each supported when iOS fifteen rolled out last year). but since the iPhone eight was free in 2017, that means Apple can offer a major operating update this fall for a phone that’s been around for 5 years.But things are a touch weirder on the mac aspect of things. Apple says the operating system can run on all devices.  

  • iMac from 2017 or later
  • iMac pro from 2017 or later 
  •  MacBook from 2017 or later
  • MacBook pro from 2017 or later
  • MacBook Air from 2018 or later
  • mac mini from 2018 or later
  • mac pro from 2019 or later

That means that Apple is continuing to support Macs with Intel chips… however, only Macs were free within the past 5 years. It wouldn’t be surprising if Apple eventually complete support for all Intel-powered Macs, but that hasn’t happened yet.The upgrade situation looks a little better for iPad owners, with Apple offering upgrades to all models of the iPad Pro, for instance. that includes first-gen models that were free as so much back in 2015. If you've got a non-pro model, you’ll like something a bit newer, as these are the models that may support iPadOS 16:

* iPad Air, 3rd-gen or later (2019)

* iPad, 5th-gen or later (2017)

* iPad mini, 5th-gen or later (2019)
