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.
