iOS 11.1 would be compatible for all iPhone devices except iPhone 5…
If you’d compare couple of past iOS releases, you’d know that Apple discontinued supporting older iPhones one by one with the time and compatibility.
With the time, Apple made better iOS platform and according to that they made changes to iPhone device. iPhone 8 and iOS 11.1 may be perfect match with each other.
Thus, iPhone 5 may miss iOS 11.1 as iPhone 4S was unlucky to get iOS 10 last year. Anyway, this is regular cycle that we face most of the time and I think this is healthy practice by Apple.
Look, older phones couldn’t handle feature rich and larger iOS platform and we expect iOS 11.1 would be one of them. We believe iOS 10 was the toughest firmware that was completely incompatible for iPhone 4S and may be iOS 11.1 would be for iPhone 5.
Since last iOS release, Apple made a huge changes to their firmware features. Now, we’ve a redesigned control center and new lock screen. Yeah, iOS 11.1 lock screen should be more effective and we expect that there should be a dedicated option to add your own widget. Suppose, I want to add a to do widget, I should allow to add that. But who knows, what the future of iOS 11.1.
If you want to download iOS 11.1, you have to wait couple of days more since its under development and we’re catching it on Analytics normally everyday now.
iOS 11.1 Compatible Devices List
Most devices including iPhone 8 would support iOS 11.1 however iPhone 5 may lose it’s grip from iOS 11.1 as I believe it was not compatible for iOS 10 too.
Yeah, there are couple of iPad devices exist out there that gonna out from compatibility list of iOS 11.1 this year.
I believe, iPod Touch 6 would definitely get the iOS 11.1 flavor iOS 12 too, because it’s very powerful device and you can at least expect iOS 11.1 this year.
Apple may want to add more features in iOS 11.1 according to iPhone 8 and we’d be here to update each and every new features reveal from the web.
Would you purchase iPhone 8?
