Apple iOS 9 Compatibility – Will Your Device be Compatible with the iOS 9?


Following the release of the not-so impressive iOS 8 in September 2014, Apple is working hard on the development of the next OS.

Though the American gadget-producing company has not talked about the launch of the iOS 9 officially yet, there is a huge buzz in the market for its expected release date and features. Many people are stating that the iOS 9 will be released this September, while some are expecting it to introduce several breathtaking features. Meanwhile, the bigger question is – Will your Apple device get an update?

Apple has been cutting off the names of older devices from its list of compatible devices in every iOS update. If we highlight some pictures of history, people owning iPhone 3GS or older are already left heartbroken. In addition to this, the release of the iOS 8 brought further bad news for the iPhone 4 users. To put into perspective, the iOS 8 is compatible with a number of devices. The list of devices involve iPod Touch 5th Generation, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPad 2, iPad Air, iPad Mini with Retina display, iPad Mini and iPad with Retina display.

This means that these devices are eligible for the iOS 9 update. However, as the company scraps off some devices from the list every year, a few devices are in the danger zone. Though the company has not hinted their names and the release date of the upcoming iOS is far away, we cannot offer an accurate list of devices. However, we are creating an expected list on the basis of our analysis and experience.

Therefore, the most expected devices that will run the iOS 9 are iPod Touch (5th generation), iPad Mini 2, Mini 3, Mini 4, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, Air 2, Air 3 and iPhone series from iPhone 5 to iPhone 7. This would be a hard pill to swallow for people who are using devices not listed here.

If you are a user of the Apple device that will probably get the upcoming update, there’s one thing you must know. As per inside reports, the iOS 9 will not allow you to downgrade. This means that you will not be able to switch back to the iOS 8 at any cost. Hence, it is recommended that you create a backup before upgrading to the upcoming iOS.

As the iOS 9 is not going to release before September, it is going to be an exciting couple of months. Apple will soon start talking about the iOS 9 update. Also, we will get further hints whether your device will be compatible with this highly anticipated operating system.
