While we’re still diving into iOS 7 beta, some of you are probably wondering if you even want to upgrade. And I’m not talking testing the beta, but the actual release this fall. Well, before you start weighing the pros and cons of this shiny, new iOS, you need to stop and ask yourself two questions:

Will iOS 7 even run on my device? And will my device be able to utilize all of its new features?

First things first, the only compatible devices are as follows:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • iPad 2
  • 3rd generation iPad with Retina
  • 4th generation iPad with Retina
  • iPad Mini
  • 5th generation iPod touch

And, of course, any new devices announced this fall will ship with the new iOS standard, we can only assume. If your device is not listed above, you will not be able to install iOS 7 on it (we’ll see you in the comments, I’m sure).

Now, you’ve passed the first test (we hope, otherwise we’re not sure why you’re still reading). Your device is supported — congratulations! But hold up. Just because your device is supported, doesn’t mean it will be able to utilize all of the new iOS 7 features. Bummer, I know, but at least you’ll know now and not have to wait until you get it in the fall and become disappointed after a long back up and install.

Here’s the skinny on the devices that are compatible with all features.

AirDrop

  • iPhone 5
  • 4th generation iPad with Retina
  • iPad mini
  • 5th generation iPod touch

Swipe and panoramic photo

  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • 5th generation iPod touch

Square photos and video formats

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • 3rd generation iPad with Retina
  • 4th generation iPad with Retina
  • iPad mini
  • 5th generation iPod touch

Live Camera filters

  • iPhone 5
  • 5th generation iPod touch

Filters in Photos app

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • 3rd generation iPad with Retina
  • 4th generation iPad with Retina
  • iPad mini
  • 5th generation iPod touch

If your device is not listed under one or more of these above, that means it will not be able to use these new features.

However, keep in mind, Apple can choose to change compatibility in the future: Apple can giveth or Apple can taketh away.

So, did you make the cut? Or are you planning on buying a new iDevice this fall? Or are you jumping ship?
