It's that time of year again: Apple has released most of its new software to the world, and that includes a brand new version of iPadOS, iPadOS 14. Like last year's release, iPadOS 14 runs on a wide range of devices, from Apple's budget-friendly iPad to the high-end iPad Pro. But does yours make the cut? Let's find out.
Here are the devices that will run iPadOS 14 when it ships to customers later this year, according to Apple.
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation)
- iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation)
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation)
- iPad Pro 11-inch (1st generation)
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation)
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st generation)
- iPad Pro 10.5-inch
- iPad Pro 9.7-inch
- iPad Air (4th generation)
- iPad Air (3rd generation)
- iPad Air 2
- iPad mini (5th generation)
- iPad mini 4
- iPad (8th generation)
- iPad (7th generation)
- iPad (6th generation)
- iPad (5th generation)
So, iPadOS 14 will run on every iPad that Apple has sold since 2014 except the iPad mini 3, which also didn't support iPadOS 13. So if you've purchased a new iPad in the last six years, chances are that it'll run the new software now that it's out. And, of course, it comes pre-installed on 2020's latest iPads, the 10.2-inch iPad 8 and the newly-redesigned iPad Air 4.
Now, if your iPad doesn't make the cut and you're looking for the best iPad for iPadOS 14, I'd have to give that to either the latest iPad Pro or the upcoming iPad Air 4.
