Which iPads will be compatible with the new iPadOS 18?

iPadOS 18

It's been a few days since Tim Cook and his entire team published all the news about their operating systems and although it is true that artificial intelligence made sense with Apple Intelligence, We were a bit frozen feeling that it will take a long time to be able to test all those new functions. However, Apple has already released the first betas for developers even of iPadOS 18, the next big update to the iPad OS. In fact

Great needs for iPads to be compatible with iPadOS 18

Every year that passes around Apple devices is a year that we remove from the cycle of major updates. That is, we know that after a few years pass, Apple will begin to limit the new features of major updates until, finally, they decide to stop supporting these devices and they are no longer compatible with new operating systems. It already happened last year with iPadOS 17 and although all expectations were placed on iPadOS 18 was going to follow the same pattern, that has not been the case.

The reason is that Apple has decided that the iPads compatible with iPadOS 18 will be the same as they are with iPadOS 17, that is to say:

  • iPad: 7th generation and later
  • iPad mini: 5th generation and later
  • iPad Air: 3rd generation and later
  • iPad Pro: 1st generation 11-inch and later, 3rd generation 12,9-inch and later
