    iOS 16 Compatible Devices

How sooner or later we will be getting iOS 16, still remains to be answered by Apple. However, what Apple iPhone users are concerned about is which iPhones will support iOS 16. Apple drops some old iPhones and iPads with every new iOS and iPadOS update. However, if you remember, with iOS 14, Apple dropped the iPhone 5s from the list, and iOS 15 dropped support for iPhone 6. Similarly, iPad mini (3rd generation) and iPad Air (1st generation) were not compatible with iPad OS 14.

That is the reason why there have been a lot of talking going on recently about iOS 16 new features and compatible devices. Therefore, we decided to shoot the leaked list of iOS 16 compatible devices.
