Apple is constantly updating its products with fun features, but its next revamp may not make it to all of its gadgets. 

The the latest version of the company’s operating system, iOS 11, drops in September and includes an augmented reality app, the ability to use two apps at once and a few other facets.

But which devices will get the update?

If you purchased your product after 2013, you’re likely in good standing. But double check below to be sure.

The iOS 11 is compatible with the following:

  • iPhone 5S and newer
  • Any iPad Air
  • Any iPad Pro
  • iPad mini2 and newer
  • 2017 iPad 
  • 6th generation iPod

That means devices excluded above, such as the iPhone 5C or earlier, will remain on iOS 10. 

But don’t jump for joy just yet. Every iOS 11 feature may not come to all products listed. 

The feature that allows you to view two apps at once will only be available for iPads not iPad minis, and apps that depend on a stylus require an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.
