Control Center Adjustment
Important! This approach allows you not to navigate through the settings, but to get the expected result with one click.
How 3D Touch works on iPhone
3D Touch on iPhone is powered by sensors built into the display of the mobile device. When pressed, the distance between the backlight level and the display glass changes, due to which the sensors determine its strength. In addition, the technology uses other sensors, including an accelerometer. Based on these signs, the gadget predicts the intentions of the user.
The use of the functionality made it possible to expand the capabilities of touch control of the smartphone. In addition to the classic gestures (touching, swiping, spreading / pinching the fingers), you can use gestures with different levels of pressure on the display. This approach helps the owner manage the content without leaving the current program.
For your information! If you hold a click on a page, then its preview will appear. And the application of effort to the display will cause it to be fully viewed.
3D Touch on iPhone and what it does: functionality speeds up interaction with utilities. It is enough to click on the program shortcut and select one of the actions suggested by the system by repeated action. The program allows you to make a call from the contact list without opening the “phone” subsection.
D Touch iPhone. what is it, how to use
Smartphone owners often wonder what 3D Touch iPhone is and how this functionality can be used. The application has many different functions that help speed up your smartphone experience.
iPhone 6s, 7, 8, X
3D Touch is supported on which iPhones:
The iPhone XR does not support 3D Touch, nor does the 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max models. The iPhone SE 3D Touch also lacks functionality, but updating to version 13 of the operating system allows you to use a replacement utility. Haptic Touch.
Which iPhone models support 3D Touch
Having heard about the unusual functionality, users wonder which iPhones have 3D Touch. For the first time they started talking about the application in 2015. it was then that the company decided to surprise its customers with unusual opportunities.
Important! During this period, users did not want to update smartphones only because of slightly updated firmware and dubious additions associated with strong pressing on the display.
What is 3D Touch on iPhone
3D Touch on iPhone is a special technology from Apple that allows the device to detect how hard you press on the display. When pressure is applied, individual application functions are called forcibly without having to run them.
Important! The technology was developed for Apple Watch and Macbook laptop trackpads and is called Force Touch. On its basis, a change in the functionality of the smartphone was thought out.
Working with folders
Pressing hard on the area of the created directory allows you to change its name, skim through the available messages (no need to find the required application). The context menu that appears on the display helps to resolve issues in a few seconds.
The functionality allows you to get additional solutions: preliminary cancellation, replacement of the initial priorities or transfer of the link to friends for quick acquaintance with the new utility.
Important! The functionality not only speeds up the work with programs, but also allows you to quickly create and send messages.
- Platform: iOS / Android
- Rates: 4 / 4.0
- How it works: Unlike previous applications, Fyuse does not create 3D in the traditional way, but it can help you get interesting video panoramas.
The principle of operation of the application is the same as that of the panorama function built into a standard smartphone camera: after aiming the lens at an object, it draws control points and tells you in which direction you need to move the phone to capture an image in order to take a high-quality 3D photo.
Fyuse has created a whole community in which users share their creativity and are inspired by others.
A step-by-step scheme for delegating a project to a 3D visualizer
It is very important to do the work in stages, coordinating each stage in order to meet the deadlines and get the result you need. So, let’s start making our dreams come true and start studying the step-by-step scheme of working with visualizers:
If you haven’t worked in 3D Max and just want to start delegating. You do not need to know all of these program terms. You simply give an assignment and show that at the first stage you want to receive.
Let’s talk about how to create a modeling assignment for a renderer:
- The main point of the task is to make sure that the visualizer clearly understands you and does as you intended. What can be used for this. You should already have a measurement plan with all the dimensions of the room and a plan for the arrangement of furniture. This is the information by which the visualizer can make the very “box” of the room.
- In order to show the filling of the room (the design itself), either freehand sketches or schematic designations of what and where will stand and what form the attached images are needed.
- In order to make freehand sketches and diagrams understandable, it is best to attach images of already implemented projects, as an example of what you mean.
An example of TK for modeling below:
After the black and white sketches are ready, they can be shown to the client to agree on the “geometry of space”. Such pictures can even pass for high-quality sketches. If the sketches have already been approved, then it is not necessary to show them. If the visualizer understood you correctly, we proceed to the next stage. If not, then we tell you where to fix it. Corrections in V-ray toon do not take long. Therefore, the next, or even the same day, you will receive corrected sketches.
The second stage is a visualization task. At this stage, you should already have selected materials or a concept ready, where what materials will be used. The task can be issued in the form of a collage, or in a list. The list usually looks like this: sofa. material such and such (link), etc.
It is best to show the property of the material, namely glossiness, dullness, using the example of realized objects. It is best to have a base of pictures with different interiors with you in order to easily find a similar one to your idea.
At the same stage, the renderer adjusts the lighting. It is very important to indicate to the renderer if your design has light effects, the color and shape of the glow using the example of again similar images. A competent visualizer plays with lighting in such a way that the picture is three-dimensional. What does it mean?
It is not necessary to turn on all light sources at the same time, so the picture will become flat and there will be practically no play of light and shadow. It is important to include those sources where natural light from the window does not enter, that is, in dark areas. So the picture is lively and contrasting.
So, after we have issued the task for rendering, we are waiting for preliminary images of not high resolution (you can 1500×1000 or 1200×800) with minimal settings, but so that we can already see the preliminary result.
These preview images can be shown to the client for approval and adjustments.
After you have made the amendments and got the desired result, agreed with the client. You can finalize the result with high resolution pictures and good settings. Rendering of such images takes approximately 2 times longer than preliminary ones.
Minimum image size for printing on A4 format. 3000 x 2000 pixels.
So I told you 3 main stages by which you can successfully render your project. Success, in my understanding, is on time, of high quality and when the result fully meets and, possibly, even exceeds expectations.
In conclusion, I will write a few things about which it is important to agree with the visualizer BEFORE starting work:
- it is important to agree on the sequence of stages;
- it is better to agree on the terms with the visualizer for each stage, namely, what will be ready today, what tomorrow, what the day after tomorrow;
- the size of the image should be in the ratio of 1.5, that is, 1500 x 1000, 3000 x 2000, etc this format is similar in proportion to the A4 sheet format;
- payment to the visualizer can be done either in stages, or 50% of the prepayment and 50% at the end. Do not pay 100%, as you deprive the person of the motivation to work on time, because he got all his money. But if this is a professional who values his reputation and loves his job, his main motivation will be to make a high-quality result.
To get a 3D photo, fix the white cross on the object and rotate the camera in the desired direction. Make sure that the subject is not moving, and move the smartphone not with your hands, but with your whole body. this will make the processing effect look realistic.
Make a 3D model from photography: use in movies and games
Entertainment is another area where 3D model building from photography is used. In the case of motion pictures, modeling is needed for special effects and for combining frames. People who are prototypes are needed for games and cartoons. On the basis of their photographs, characters are drawn, this adds realism to them and harmonizes the character. So, Robin Williams became the prototype of the genie from “Aladdin”, and the characteristic appearance of the evil queen from Snow White is the merit of Joan Crawford, the star of the first magnitude of the era of Golden Hollywood.
In the past, in order to come up with the characteristics of a living person for an animated or game hero, an artist was needed. Today, special programs will help with this, we will talk about them below. And if you need a completely new character, contact KLONA: we have an animation department.
Making a 3D model from a photograph: an example of Disney
What is 3D modeling and where is it used
3D modeling is the creation of three-dimensional images (models) of objects, buildings, figures and everything else that has volume. 3D models are created from 2D drawings and sometimes just imagination.
Three-dimensional modeling is used in the following areas:
- printing objects on a 3D printer;
- creating characters and objects for video games and special effects in videos;
- creating animations and illustrations;
- design of interiors, landscapes, architectural structures;
- production, construction and much more.
Consider several popular free services that will allow you to create 3D models online.
TOP apps for iPhone and Android
The 3D image gives a sense of immersion and realism. As if you can touch it.
Previously, to create a three-dimensional image, special optics were required. entire systems of cameras and lenses that were inaccessible to ordinary users. But with the development of 3D technologies, every smartphone owner got the opportunity to create a three-dimensional image in a couple of clicks.
With these applications, 3D has evolved from a complex multi-layered technology into a game. You no longer need to spend hours learning Photoshop and other clever programs with tons of different functions. You need to click on a couple of buttons. The rest will be done by artificial intelligence, on the basis of which these applications work.
By the way, if you are still not afraid of difficulties and are eager to plunge into the world of graphic editors, we have prepared a cool selection for you:
iOS 8.1.1 had almost no impact on the performance of iPhone 4s and iPad 2
The quality of iOS 8 turned out to be much lower than what we usually expect in Apple products. The company eliminated the most critical flaws in iOS 8.1, and then turned its attention to the owners of relatively old mobile devices: iPhone 4s and iPad 2. They are the ones who are most dissatisfied with the performance of the latest version of the mobile operating system. For them, the iOS 8.1.1 update was intended, designed to solve most of the problems on these devices. Resource Ars Technica decided to evaluate the work of Apple and check the performance of a smartphone and tablet using different versions of iOS.
For comparison, Ars Technica took devices running iOS 7.1.2, iOS 8 Golden Master and iOS 8.1.1, on which they alternately launched standard applications. The result, as expected, turned out to be almost identical or not in favor of iOS 8 or iOS 8.1.1. Everything rests on the modest capabilities of the Apple A5 processor, as well as the high requirements of the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. The only reasonable decision for the owners of the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 was the refusal to upgrade to the G8.
Nevertheless, iOS 8.1.1 still brought some improvements. The stability of work has increased, as well as performance in certain tasks. For example, Safari handles opening multiple, voluminous tabs, as well as switching apps in parallel in the multitasking menu. According to Ars Technica, Apple engineers managed to solve problems with loading and unloading processes from RAM, which is only 512 MB on the devices in question.
In general, even such an improvement is better than nothing. Hopes were not fully justified, but Apple managed to slightly normalize work with the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 in some scenarios. One thing is for sure: the next version of iOS will clearly leave these gadgets overboard and, possibly, bring headaches to the owners of the iPhone 5 and iPad of the third or fourth generation, as well as iPad mini.

Redesigned notification system
I would like to see the return of automatic grouping of notifications from different applications. This feature was in early versions of iOS, but then it was removed.
Currently, notifications are displayed in the order they appear on the smartphone. Many people like this, but for users with a lot of notifications, this is a problem as it becomes difficult to find the desired notification from a specific application.
You can display more information on the locked screen than now.
IOS 13 takes steps towards grouping notifications. For example, you can clear all Instagram notifications with one swipe, while leaving notifications from
This is as it should be, but there is currently no way to select this default behavior for all notifications. You need to enter each application separately and enable the corresponding setting. If there are many applications, it can take a long time.
If you look at previous versions of iOS, you can guess when iOS 14 will be released. not earlier than fall 2020. iOS, iPadOS and macOS have been released at about the same time for several years in a row.
Apple’s mobile operating system typically releases in mid-September, about a week after the new iPhones are announced. Based on past years, iOS 14 will be released between September 14 and 18, 2020.
In the previous 5 years, the release dates were as follows:
- iOS 13: Thursday 19 September 2019.
- iOS 12: Monday, September 17, 2018.
- iOS 11: Wednesday 20 September 2017.
- iOS 10: Tuesday 13 September 2016.
- iOS 9: Wednesday, September 16, 2015.
Apple is due to announce its plans for the new OS during its annual WWDC 2020 developer conference. This conference takes place every June, usually in the first week of the month.
After that, iOS 14 Beta will be released for developers so that they have time to prepare their applications for release. The first beta version of iOS 14 should appear after WWDC 2020, that is, after June 8th. The release of the first public iOS 14 Beta is expected at the end of June.
Anyone can get early access to iOS 14 through the public beta program. Enthusiasts install, evaluate the system, report bugs found. The testing program begins a few weeks after the developer conference, giving Apple time to find bugs from the first builds.
The estimated release date for iOS 14 in Russia is the same as in all other countries. from 14 to 18 September 2020.
Augmented reality app
Apple looks set to take another big step towards augmented reality with a new iOS 14 app for viewing AR content.
Right now, iPhone users have to download separate apps to watch certain AR content. New dedicated AR app for iOS 14 could change that by letting users see everything from one screen.
If successful, it could push AR into the mainstream for advertisers and developers.
The development of the operating system is at a closed stage. So far, there are no confirmed features or even rumors about what’s new in iOS 14. However, there is no shortage of wishes from users either.
French website iPhonesoft, citing an unnamed source at Apple, said. that iOS 14 will support almost all devices compatible with iOS 13. With the exception of the latest iPhone 5S and iPhone 6, which are equipped with A7 and A8 chips, respectively.
Here are the devices that will support iOS 14:
iOS 8 vs. iOS 12 on iPhone 6 Speedtest! (First vs. Final versions!)
- iPod touch (7th generation).
- iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
- iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
- iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
- iPhone X.
- iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
- iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
- iPhone 9 (SE 2).
- iPhone 12 and 12 Pro (5G).
If the rumor is true, the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s smartphones will receive support for iOS 14.
The iPhone 6s was introduced in 2015, and Apple devices are typically supported for 5 years. These five years end this year. The same story happened with the iPhone 6, which was released in 2014 and it was no longer supported in iOS 13, which was released in 2019.
The exact information about which iPhones will receive iOS 14, we will find out later.
Call notification that does not cover the entire screen
When the iPhone rings, the notification covers the entire screen. This has been the case since the very first generation of iPhones, released in 2007.
Much better is an alert in the form of a small notification, which works similarly to a regular notification in iOS. The main thing is to be able to quickly press the buttons “Accept” or “Reject” the call.
In 2007, phone calls were the most important thing, but since then people have changed, and the smartphone has moved far from the concept of “telephone”. It is used for text correspondence, photographs, videos are taken, games are launched, etc. Nobody needs a phone call alert to cover all this.
“Portrait Mode” in the iPhone. what is it?
This is a mode that allows you to take pictures with a bokeh effect. In such photographs, the background is blurred, and the person remains clear.
Previously, due to the small size of the phone camera on smartphones, this was not feasible, so the Apple team made a real breakthrough. It happened in the fall of 2016 with the arrival of the new iPhone 7 Plus. But the programmers did not stop there; later, lighting effects were created for this shooting mode. It is possible to expand their list in the near future.
For your information! After Apple, the ability to shoot portraits appeared on phones from other manufacturers. There is an opinion that using this mode it will be possible to shoot videos in the future.
ПОЛНЫЙ ОБЗОР iPhone 8 и 8 Plus: КОМУ, ЗАЧЕМ?
- fast focusing;
- the ability to create high-quality selfies;
- the presence of the effect of background depth;
- the ability to adjust the illumination of the picture.
The bokeh effect was achieved thanks to the introduction of two lenses into the design of the phone: a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens (enlarges the image). The picture is taken at once on both, after which the images are correlated with the formation of a depth-of-field map, special algorithms read the person’s face in the picture and leave it untouched, the background image is blurred.
Important! The front camera does not have this technology.
Taking photos in this mode on iPhone 7 and 8
The procedure for creating portraits in smartphones with this mode (iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus and above):
- Open the camera and tap the mode (“Portrait”) in the program.
- Follow on-screen prompts until Light Mode turns yellow.
- Press the capture button.
Note! The program informs about the wrong illumination distance for shooting.
Taking a photo using the iPhone portrait feature
- turn on the flash;
- set up a timer;
- apply filters.
Important! On iPhone 11 and above, you can zoom, use a wide-angle lens, change the depth of field.
As mentioned earlier, portrait photography is not available on the iPhone 8 and 7, so special applications are used to take pictures with a blurred background:
- Depth Effects. Modifies photos both on camera and uploaded to gallery. After the picture has opened, you need to select “Blur”, then “Mask” and apply a blur with a brush. Brush parameters (shape, size, opacity) can be adjusted. Errors are canceled by tapping “Reverse”. There is a set of filters;
- FabFocus. Has face recognition technology, so it is possible to blur the background around them in the process of shooting. If the face is not found, the program asks for its designation. There is an adjustment of the blur parameters (shape, size, depth);
- Fore Photo. Has the function of selecting objects that need or do not need to be blurred. At the same time, they can be increased, hiding small inaccurately blurred details around. An object can be not only a person, but also, for example, a piece of furniture;
- AfterFocus. Blurs after selecting the focus point. Creates the effect of a SLR camera;
- Patch. It works only with a ready-made image, while it is better to adjust the effect manually. The editing tool is located at the top of the screen;
- Focos. Has an adjustment for the degree of blurring of the background image.
Changing portrait lighting when shooting
To improve lighting in photos, the Portrait Lighting feature has been added to phone models above the iPhone 8 Plus (inclusive). Different smartphones have a different number of filters for it (from three to 6).
For your information! Apple has released a video in which Sh. Wise walks down the street, and during this the corresponding lighting changes around her.
Lighting filters in iPhone 8 Plus (5 total):
- day. Natural light, no change;
- studio. Lightened facial features, conveys joy well;
- contour. Adding directional lighting, emphasizes the face in detail;
- stage. Spotlight aiming at an object, the background is black flat;
- stage b / w. Same as Scene Mode, but grayscale photography.
To add a mode while shooting, you need:
- Open the “Camera” program.
- Select “Portrait” mode.
- At the bottom of the viewfinder, tap on the illumination mode (cube image).
- Take a picture, this mode will be applied to it.
If you need to shoot quickly and there is no time to choose the appropriate mode, you can set it after taking the photo. What steps need to be taken for this:
- Open Photos and select a picture taken in Portrait mode.
- In the upper corner, tap on “Change”.
- Lighting effects will be displayed at the bottom of the photo, select the one you want by swiping them.
- Tap on “Done”.
You can also change the already selected lighting in the picture. The procedure is the same as when you select after shooting.
Note! The choice of lighting is possible only for photographs taken in the “Portrait” mode, for movies, these filters do not work.
Which iPhone Models Have “Portrait Mode
As mentioned earlier, the iPhone 7 Plus became the first carrier of this feature. Owners of iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 will not find this feature in their phones.
- new functions are usually added to more expensive smartphone models;
- these models have not two cameras on the back, but one.
Note! There are smartphones on the market that have this function with one camera, which provide the effect thanks to the built-in software, for example, Google phones (Pixel 2).
Apple phone models that also have portrait shots:
- iPhone 8 Plus;
- iPhone 11;
- iPhone 11 pro;
- iPhone 11 pro max;
- iPhone XS;
- iPhone XS max;
- iPhone XR
- iPhone x.
On most of the phones presented, when using this mode, additional lighting effects can be recreated.
On iPhone 8 and 7 that do not support Portrait mode, you can recreate the bokeh effect using special programs, which will be discussed later.
How to enable portrait mode on iPhone 8 and 7. detailed instructions
Many social media account holders dream of taking pictures as beautiful as those of real photographers. Blurring the background in the background allows you to significantly improve the photo and bring it closer to a professional one. The article will look at ways to accomplish this in iPhone smartphones.
Is it possible to delete this mode
In a conventional camera, if the effect is applied unsuccessfully, nothing can be done, you need to reshoot the image. Apple manufacturers have foreseen this as well. If the shot in Portrait mode is not taken correctly (hair is blurred or part of the background remains clear), the bokeh effect can be canceled.
- Select and open a photo for adjustment.
- Tap on “Change” at the top of the screen.
- In the same place, but in the center, click on “Portrait” (the yellow highlight should disappear).
IPhone Portrait Mode is a breakthrough in photography, allowing you to take pictures that blur the background behind the subject. To turn it on, you need to open the camera, select the “Portrait” mode at the bottom of the screen and adjust the lighting.
The iPhone 8 and 7 do not include portrait mode by default, so you can use programs that allow you to create the effect in real time or after shooting. Some of them are: Depth Effects, FabFocus, Fore Photo, AfterFocus, Patch, Focos. Before downloading programs, you need to read user Комментарии и мнения владельцев so that there are no unpleasant surprises after it.
Thus, portrait mode is a very interesting option that you need to create extraordinary shots. It can be turned on or off on demand. But not all phone models support it.
How to upgrade iOS to version 8 on iPhone 4
Apple regularly pleases its users with the release of new firmware versions, so every owner of an “apple” smartphone thinks about whether it is worth updating the software on his smartphone. In this post, we will talk about how to update iOS to version 8 on the 4th iPhone, and whether it is worth doing.
Using iTunes on a computer
So, How to Update iPhone 4 Using a Computer?
First you need to download the update using the special iTunes application (if there is a lot of free space) or from the manufacturer’s official website. Before connecting your device, make sure you are using the most recent version of iTunes, then click on “Help” in the menu bar and enable “Update”. After that, you need to do the following:
- Connect your smartphone to your computer using USB, wait for iTunes to launch or start it manually.
- To the left of the iTunesStore button, click on the device button.
- Select “Update” without holding the Shift or Option key. If an update is available, then it is automatically downloaded and installed on the smartphone.
- Then a pop-up window will pop up, which will indicate all the necessary information about the update. After that, you need to click “Download and update”. In the event that a notification appears in the window that the latest version is being used, then you need to download the firmware using the download link.
When downloading firmware using Safari, you must disable automatic unpacking. Also, you can use Firefox or Chrome for this.
IOS update options
When the company introduced the brand new iOS 8 to its users, it immediately became clear that the iPhone 4 would not be able to function properly with this firmware version. The fact is that this operating system is designed for mobile devices with a 2-core processor, while the 4th iPhone is equipped with only one. However, it is still possible to put the new iOS 8 system on the iPhone 4. There are two upgrade options for this:
- using iTunes through a computer;
- through the network.
Next, we will consider each option in detail.
It should be noted that after the update, only the user is solely responsible for the functioning of his gadget.
Updating via Wi-Fi
In fact, updating the software on a smartphone using Wi-Fi is an easier way than the previous one, but there is no full guarantee that the update will be successful. First of all, it should be noted that even at a high connection speed, it is rather difficult to download a firmware file weighing 1 GB. In addition, do not forget about the device’s battery. the minimum charge for downloading a file should be at least half. If after downloading the update process starts and the device sits down and turns off, then you will have to connect the device to the computer and continue the process in iTunes.
If you plan to use this option, then you need to do the following:
- Check wireless connection and browser access.
- Enable “Settings”, go to the “General” section, select “Software Update” and click “Download and Install”. The download process starts automatically and the software update process takes place in the background. You cannot run the process on a smartphone without jailbreak
- After downloading the file, click the “Install” button and accept the corresponding agreement for users.
After the update process is over, you need to make some adjustments and return all the saved content from the created iCloud or iTunes backup.
Now you know how to update iOS on your gadget. The update is simple enough, but it can take an hour or more. If you have any difficulties or you cannot solve some issue, then you can always contact Support on the official website of the manufacturer.
Minimum iOS version: iOS 4.1 (8B117) Maximum iOS version: iOS 6.1.6 (10B500) Average update size: 382. 784 MB
With the “high-speed” version of the iPhone 3GS, Apple has done quite generously. The latest firmware version is iOS 6.1.6. But with the version of iOS 5, a strange situation turned out. She no longer subscribes and cannot be installed. At the same time, the smallest possible iOS that will work on a smartphone is iOS 4.1.
iPhone 4 (GSM / CDMA)
Minimum iOS version: iOS 7.1.2 (build depends on model) Maximum iOS version: iOS 7.1.2 (build depends on model) Average update size: 1.12 GB
The only firmware that can be installed on the iPhone 4 is iOS 7.1.2. Starting with the iPhone 4, Apple has shut down any selection options. A complete rejection of skeuomorphism on the part of the company was met by a forced transition to the “flat” iOS 7. During installation, be careful, since the iPhone 4 is presented in three versions: GSM, CDMA and GSM (rev. A) 2012. Each must have its own firmware.
Minimum iOS version: iOS 2.0 (5A347) Maximum iOS version: iOS 4.2.1 (8C148) Average update size: 225. 322 MB
The updated iPhone 3G came out of the box with iOS 2.0. The firmware is supported to this day. It is not possible to update above iOS 4.2.1. Please note that Apple does not sign iOS 4.0, 4.0.1 and 4.0.2.
Minimum iOS version: iPhone OS 1.0 (1A543a) Maximum iOS version: iOS 3.1.3 (7E18) Average update size: 91. 245 MB
The original iPhone is the only device that you can install the first version of the operating system on. Then they were also referred to as iPhone OS. The latest firmware available for installation on the original iPhone is iOS 3.1.3. Downgrade available.
Minimum iOS version: iOS 9.3.5 (13G36) Maximum iOS version: iOS 9.3.5 (13G36) Average update size: 1.5 GB
Until September 2016, the iPhone 4s supported the current iOS 9 firmware. With the release of iOS 10, Apple limited the installation of new items for a smartphone released 4 years ago.
Which iOS can be installed on iPhone
With the release of updates to the iOS mobile operating system, Apple is much more organized than its rival product from Google. And although the number of smartphone models supporting iOS hardly reaches two dozen, from time to time the company restricts access to the current firmware version on devices that it considers “morally obsolete”.
This is due to both hardware incompatibility and device performance (for example, it is extremely difficult to imagine the operation of the iPhone 3GS on iOS 10) and the marketing decision. Eventually, Apple stops signing old firmware and restricts access to new ones. Unsigned firmware (firmware with expired digital certificate) cannot be installed.
Which iOS and which iPhone can be installed. you will find out in this material.
iPhone 5 and all subsequent models released after 2012
Minimum iOS version: iOS 10.0.2 (14A456) Maximum iOS version: Updates are current
The first smartphone to which Apple opened access to the latest iOS 10. Together with the iPhone 5, the current version of iOS 10 can be installed on:
- iPhone 5s, 5c
- iPhone 6, 6 Plus
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 6s, 6s Plus
- iPhone 7, 7 Plus.
At the time of this publication, the current version of iOS 10 remains iOS 10.1. IOS 10.0.1 firmware version cannot be installed because Apple has stopped signing it.
The list of iOS 10 devices will surprise you
To argue that Apple knows how to surprise, it would be at least tactless. The company of two Steves, according to legend, was created in a garage, at all times stood out from others and at the same time managed to contradict itself, without changing long-standing traditions for 40 years. The release of iOS 10 was no exception, with some truly unexpected devices included in the compatibility list.
However, after a few hours, the information on the mentioned page was changed, and the data that appeared on it looks much more realistic:
Although the iPhone 5 remained on the list, the fourth-generation iPad was the smallest supported version of Apple’s tablet. To make sure that yesterday the situation was different, here you can see a cached page with devices that support iOS 10. In any case, maybe this is for the best, because only in a nightmare can you imagine how the iPad 2 will work on the tenth version of iOS.
