iOS 10 compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices

After months of reports, rumors, and speculations, Apple has finally given us a glimpse of its next major mobile operating system version iOS 10 during its WWDC 2016 keynote. With the release of any major software version, Apple tends to bring as many users as possible onboard and just like iOS 9; the iOS 10 provides compatibility with the majority of the devices, both old and new.

In an ideal world, all the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch models still circulating in the market would still be able to run iOS 10. But in reality, most of the older devices do have sufficient hardware to run the latest feature-rich operating system efficiently. That is why Apple has to drop the old crop of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch lineup to provide best possible user-experience on its devices.
