With the announcement of iPadOS 18, Apple has also revealed the list of supported devices for this upcoming operating system. Expected to launch later this fall, around the time Cupertino unveils the iPhone 16, iPadOS 18 supports most of the already-released iPad models.

With several AI features, thanks to Apple Intelligence, the company has also tweaked the Freeform app while adding many new features to a range of its built-in apps, such as Safari, Notes, Voice Memo, Calendar, and even adding the long-anticipated Calculator app. However, not every iPad supported by iPadOS 17 can be updated to iPadOS 18.

That said, this is the list of iPadOS 18 supported devices:

  • iPad Pro (2018)
  • iPad Pro (2020)
  • M1 iPad Pro
  • M2 iPad Pro
  • M4 iPad Pro
  • iPad Air 3
  • iPad Air 4
  • M1 iPad Air
  • M2 iPad Air
  • iPad mini 5
  • iPad 7
  • iPad 8
  • iPad 9
  • iPad 10

With that, Apple ditched the second-gen iPad Pro, the first 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and the iPad 6. Even with the iPad 7 and iPad Air 3 still being supported, it doesn’t mean they will get all the features, as several functions, such as Stage Manager, are already non-existent on these devices. In addition, the M4 iPad Pro is the best-performing iPad for this upcoming iPadOS 18 update.

Alongside iPadOS 18, Apple has also previewed iOS 18, macOS 15, tvOS 18, watchOS 11, and visionOS 2.0. Several features are coming to Apple users in the coming months, and BGR will bring all the latest details as Cupertino starts testing these new operating system updates.

Besides that, the iPhone 16 is fast approaching. We expect Apple’s newest phone to be announced by September. Until then, we’ll keep bringing you the latest rumors, leaks, and news from Apple as we learn more about it.
