release date and compatible devices

by Kelvin

Following the strategy of previous years, Apple took advantage of his last keynote to announce that the final and stable version of iOS 13 will be available starting September 19. Users with compatible devices can update via OTA or through iTunes. The operating system went through several test periods for five months, enough time to detect failures and correct them.


It is important to remember that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the models that remain outside the support list of iOS 13. However, the rest of subsequent generations will not have any problem to receive the news of the operating system. To leave no doubt, we provide you with the complete list of compatible equipment:

  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • 7th generation iPod Touch

iOS 13, beyond taking a leap in performance, also offers new features such as expected dark mode, which will facilitate night reading and positively impact the battery of the iPhone with OLED display (X, XS, XS Max, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max). On the other hand, the Reminders app is completely renewed to embrace artificial intelligence, but without losing the simplicity of the interface.

FaceID will be 30% faster, a figure that you will notice mainly on the iPhone X. Of course, those of Cupertino have enhanced security and privacy of this version, and the best example is Sign in with Apple, the authentication system of Apple which can be integrated by third-party services and apps.
