Which iPhone models are needed to run iOS 18

iOS 17 on an iPhone

At WWDC 2024, Apple will unveil iOS 18. Here's which iPhone models will run the new version of the operating system.

The annual WWDC keynote is chiefly the venue for Apple to reveal its updates for its operating systems. With big changes expected to be on the way for iOS 18, some users may wonder whether their aging iPhone will be able to run it at all.

On Monday, a leaker known to AppleInsider for accuracy on such matters posted to X that an earlier post from April was "confirmed." That earlier post said that all iPhone models that are compatible with iOS 17 will work with iOS 18.

If true, that means there won't be any iOS 17 devices dropped off the supported device list for iOS 18.
