Will your device support the new Apple updates?
If you haven't bought your Apple device in the past five years, you my be out of luck when it comes to getting the newest updates.
Apple launched its 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) earlier this week with a 2-hour keynote. A couple of the bigger highlights were the release of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, both due this fall. However, in all the hype, Apple glossed over the devices that won't be supported with the new updates.
These iGadgets Aren't Eligible for iOS 10
For iPad models, you won't have the option to update if you have an iPad 1, 2, or 3, or an iPad Mini. When it comes to iPods, don't expect the new features if you have a 5th-generation iPod touch or older. And if you're reading this on an iPhone 4S or older, then you're out of luck, too.
No Sierra for These Macs
The newly named macOS is bringing a lot to the table with this year's version of Sierra. The biggest change to look for is finally having Siri on the desktop, right in the dock. But there are a handful of models that won't be welcoming Siri in the fall. MacBooks and iMacs from early 2009 and before aren't supported; neither are 2009 and older MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro models.
