Although your device may Support iOS 10, you must be aware that some of the new features in the firmware will only work on the more up to date devices. For example, 3D Touch features will only work on the iPhone 6s and upwards. Multi-tasking features will only work on the iPad Air 2 and later and so on. Most of the features will work on all devices and all of the performance and security enhancements will be applicable across the board as well.

Older devices have been excluded simply because they do not contain the right hardware and they are limited in performance while newer devices are designed with much faster processors and better hardware all round.

  1. “Older devices have been excluded simply because they do not contain the right hardware and they are limited in performance” – Ipad 3 and 4 is limited in performance in comparision to ipad mini? Are you serious? 512 mb of RAM in Ipad mini versus 1Gb of RAM in Ipad 3 and 4. And more… This is very silly…
