Apple Confirms iOS 18 Is Only Available On These iPhone Models – List

At its WWDC event, Apple announced its next big update for the iPhone, which is deeply integrated with the company’s new AI features. The company announced on stage that Apple Intelligence requires at least an iPhone 15 Pro or models that will launch in the future, making iPhone 15 and older models a bit redundant in comparison.

It does not necessarily mean that older iPhone models will not be able to take advantage of the company’s new AI utilities along with major feature upgrades for existing apps. In this regard, Apple officially lists the iPhone models, which will be compatible with the forthcoming iOS 18 update.
