At the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple made a slew of announcements for its software and hardware lines. Those include the preview of new operating system versions for Apple’s iPhone, iPad, Watch, and Mac. But, like every year, Apple drops support on certain older devices that will not get the latest software versions. Only the recent models are eligible for the new iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS Sonoma, and watchOS 10 updates.

We have compiled a list of all devices eligible for each software version. Remember that this list includes existing iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Watch models — including the new MacBook Pro M2 with a 15-inch display, refreshed Mac Pro, and refreshed Mac Studio — and does not mention the upcoming ones, expected later this year.

All new software versions are currently available under the developer channels, meaning they are meant for developers. Users with a developer account with Apple — which costs a yearly fee — can upgrade to the latest version on their iPhone, iPad, Watch, and Mac. A public beta will likely be out next month, which is when regular users can sign up and install the new versions. However, keep in mind that these are not stable builds, which is why they are full of bugs that can cause your device to function improperly. If you want to avoid that, wait for the rollout of stable versions of these operating systems later this year.
