iOS 7 compatibility chart plus AirDrop clarification

One thing we do know for certain about tomorrow, we will get to see more iOS 7 features, along with that all-important public release date. However, one thing will be playing on your mind, and that is what devices will iOS 7 be compatible with.

We have included an iOS 7 compatibility chart for you below that will be able to receive this much-needed update once it goes live, which could be one of these dates.

The iPhones that will be able to support iOS 7 are the iPhone 4, 4s and iPhone 5, along with the upcoming model/models as well. Only the iPod touch 5th generation will be able to support iOS 7, as well as the iPad 2, 4 and the iPad mini.

We already knew that AirDrop would be one of the many new features of iOS 7, so we thought some clarification was needed. We can tell you that not all iOS 7 features will work on all models of the iPhone listed above. Only the iPhone 5 will support AirDrop, along with the rumored iPhone 5S and possibly the 5C as well.

It is understandable that some people would have been confused and assumed that AirDrop would be coming to the iPhone 4 and 4S as well, but we thought you would like clarification ahead of tomorrow’s event.

This is a huge disappointment because this was a feature iPhone 4 and 4S owners were looking forward to using, although Apple could change things at the last minute, but that is not looking very likely.

If you own one of the older iPhone models do you feel hard done by, and why do you think it is that Apple has left your device out? Apple will tell you that it is a performance issue, but then again the iPhone 4S can handle Siri, so why not AirDrop?

At the end of the day iOS 7 is meant to be a cleaner version, and so should not use as much RAM, but this does not seem to be the case if certain models will be missing some new key features.
