What devices will support iPadOS 16?


As the iPhone 14 launch date is nearing, users are not just excited about the launch of the new iPhone but equally stoked about the launch of the iPad OS 16.

The upcoming iPadOS 16 will come with a variety of freeform collaboration apps, alongside new Mail and Messages features. Additionally, there will be a few new improvements to the Files app, alongside the Weather app and a plethora of multitasking experiences.

But, if you are curious whether or not the upcoming iPadOS 16 will run on your iPad or not, this article will walk you through the list of all the compatible devices.

List of Compatible Devices for iPad OS 16

If you are confused about whether or not your iPad OS 16 will be compatible with a variety of models, including:

  • iPad Pro (all models)
  • iPad Air (3rd generation and later)
  • iPad (5th generation and later)
  • iPad Mini (5th generation and later)

The above list is available from Apple’s official store, so you can be assured that you can rely on the available information.

iPad OS 16 Features won’t be functional across all iPads

Another important factor that’s worth looking into is that despite offering an exclusive list of compatible devices, not all the iPad OS 16 features will be available on every iPad model available.

Some of the features from iPadOS 16 will be only available in the iPad models with M1 chipset and above. The integration of Stage Manager will also be limited to an extent in certain models, further adding to the downsides.

So, it suggests that if you don’t have iPadOS 16 with the M1 chipset, chances are that the majority of the upgradeable features will not be available. The beta version of the iPadOS 16 is available right now. Are you excited about finally getting your hands on the new iPadOS 16 version?
