Here are all the iPhones and iPads compatible with iOS 9 content blockers

We've done a deep dive into iOS 9 content blocker extensions but if all you're really interested in is whether or not they'll work on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, here's the complete list!

  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 5s
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 2
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPod touch 6

Of course, any new products Apple releases this fall, including iPhone 6s and a theoretical iPad Pro, will certainly work with content blocking extensions as well.

If you noticed all of the models listed have something in common—they're all using 64-bit Apple A7 or later processors—there's a reason for it: speed. Apple wants content blocking extensions to execute as fast as possible so web performance is as good as possible. So, while older processors could handle it, only 64-bit processors will handle it fast enough for Apple.

(Long time iPhone owners may remember when video recording was iPhone 3GS or later, because 15fps on an iPhone 3G just wasn't good enough.)
