From the list of iOS 12 compatible devices, we have the exclusion of iPhones 6, 6 Plus and 5s, as well as iPod touch (6th generation).



Now the iPad has an operating system to call its own. Here are the tablet models that will support it:

macOS Catalina

macOS Catalina

The machines capable of running the brand new macOS 10.15 Catalina are:

  • MacBook (2015 or higher)
  • MacBook Air (2012 or higher)
  • MacBook Pro (2012 or higher)

Here, Macs Pro 2010 and 2012 with Metal-compatible graphics cards come out of the box and were still able to run MacOS Mojave.

watchOS 6

watchOS 6

The sixth version of Ma's watch operating system, which for the first time brings the ability to run apps without the need for an iOS counterpart, is compatible with the following smartwatches:

  • Apple Watch Series 1
  • Apple Watch Series 2
  • Apple Watch Series 3
  • Apple Watch Series 4

Everything then remains the same for those with a Ma watch and already runs watchOS 5 with the exception of the paired iPhone, which needs to be on iOS 13 for watchOS 6.

tvOS 13

Finally, we have the operating system that powers Apple TVs. And here, again, Apple has not cut any devices, leaving the new version of tvOS compatible with the same models:
