iOS 7 is compatible for iPhone 4 and up, iPad 2 and up and iPod touch 5, but not all features of the OS will be available to older devices. Here’s the list of features that will be incompatible with older generation iOS devices.
- Square and video formats and swipe to capture won’t be available for the iPad 2
- Filters in Camera (real time filters) will only be supported on iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5. So no iPad support, no support for iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.
- Filters in the Photos app won’t be available on the iPad 2
- AirDrop, the way to share file between devices won’t work on iPhone 4S and earlier, nor would it work with iPad 2, and iPad 3.
- Restrictions from previous releases for iOS carry on, so Siri won’t work on iPhone 4, iPad 2 and Panorama won’t work with iPhone 4 or iPad.
- Dynamic wallpapers aren’t available on the iPhone 4. (iPad compatibility not known)
Tell us what you think about the device support. Could Apple stretch a bit more to support more features in older devices?
