The presentation of WWDC21 by Apple revealed many new software updates for its main devices and, among them, the iPad also made the list to receive its next big update, the iPadOS 15. The new features should make the use of the tablet even more versatile, taking advantage of its big screen to make everyday tasks easier.
Another big news announced by Apple is the maintenance of the software upgrade for older iPads, a feature that sets the company apart from its competitors. The intention is for the new operating system to be made available in an optimized way and, even though it does not have advertised features due to the software limitation, it is worth updating the device and checking the implemented news — in addition to keeping the system more secure.
Check out the complete list of iPad models that will be compatible with iPadOS 15 below:
- iPad Pro (2021, 2020, 2018, 2017, 2015)
- iPad Air (2nd, 3rd and 4th generation)
- iPad (5th, 6th, 7th and 8th generation)
