iPhone 4 won’t get iOS 8

Apple announced iOS 8, the upcoming update to its mobile operating system. The company has a good history of supporting older devices but iPhone 4 users are out of luck this time.

Although Apple didn’t announce a new iPhone today, iPhone 4 users will want to update to a newer iPhone for all the new iOS 8 features.

The original iPad and fourth generation iPod Touch join the iPhone 4 in not being able to run iOS 8.

Want to check if your device will run iOS 8? Below is a complete list of compatible devices.

  • The iPhone 4s
  • The iPhone 5
  • The iPhone 5c
  • The iPhone 5s
  • The iPod Touch fifth generation
  • The iPad 2
  • The iPad with Retina Display

It’s surprising that a device as old as the iPad 2 will still be able to run iOS 8. Of course, expect some power hungry features to be disabled on slower devices.
