Apple iOS 11 is the latest version of Apple's iPhone and iPad operating system launched with fancy new features in tow. Perhaps the Apple users are feeling a little anxious to get it, but the latest OS will only come to some devices.

According to CNET, the user probably has nothing to fear unless the Apple device is old that mean pre-2013. The full list of Apple devices which are scheduled to get iOS 11 includes, iPhone 5S and newer, any iPad Air, any iPad Pro, iPad mini 2 and newer, iPad (2017) and iPod touch (6th generation).

In other words, any Apple device with an Apple A7 chip or later should be eligible to get iOS 11. However, it seems that it's the end of the iOS update road for the Apple iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C since those phones will continue to work but will stay on iOS 10.

It is interesting to see that the iPhone 5s, a model launched in 2013, is to be upgraded to the new iOS 11. Android phones, in comparison, get 2 years worth of updates at best, as reported by Phone Arena.

It should be noted that not all iOS 11 features will be available on the devices listed. The recently announced person-to-person payments, for example, and Apple Pay Cash will be available on the iPhone 6 and later iPhone models, but not on the iPhone 5s. 

With Google's Android, there is no guarantee that the device will ever see a new iOS 11 version of the operating system, but Apple typically updates devices for years after their release. However, it should be noted that not every single iOS 11 feature will come to every device, though. Apple iOS 11 might arrive this fall, probably in September alongside a brand-new iPhone.

iOS 11 brings a number of new features, such as deep learning, translation, and a new visual interface for Siri; the digital assistant will also be easy to get to on more third-party devices using Siri Kit. The new iPhone software update will bring HEVC for video recording that provides better quality videos at the lesser size, and photos will be better and lighter too via HEIF.
