  • Wondering What Devices iOS 7 Will Run On?


    Apple unveiled iOS 7 at the Keynote Monday afternoon for WWDC 2013. iOS 7 brings a completely new interface to iOS devices, as well as several new features and improved applications. Many people are excited to get it installed on their devices when it gets released to the public. Others will be keeping their jailbreaks on iOS 5 and iOS 6.

    If you were wondering what devices iOS 7 will be compatible with, then you're in luck. Apple has updated their Web site with information about iOS 7 and one of the things they show is the devices that iOS 7 will be able to run on. The device list includes:

    • iPhone 4
    • iPhone 4S
    • iPhone 5
    • iPod touch 5G cameraless
    • iPod touch 5G with camera
    • iPad 2
    • iPad with retina display
    • iPad Mini

    Notably, Apple has phased out the iPod touch 4G and the iPhone 3GS. The iPod touch 4G operates with the same processor as the iPhone 4, which is still supported; however, the iPod touch 4G has half of the memory as the iPhone 4. With all of iOS 7's new features, the memory is probably a big deal and why Apple phased out the iPod touch 4G.

    iOS 7 will be released in the Fall to the public. Developers can download a beta version of the software update starting today.

      The same components except the camera? My friend, it is obvious you never compared the two. The iPod 4G is trash comparitively.

      It won't even support iOS 7.

      The previous conversation compares the iPod touch 5G with the camera to the iPod touch 5G without the camera. Minus the camera, color choices, and lanyard hardware, they are identical.

      The iPods don't look the same though. The first versions have different color backs and this newer budget version has a silver back. Remember Apple caters to retailers who look at the devices, not tech people who could tell the difference on the inside of a product.

      There isn't an edited timestamp under my article, so you can tell it hasn't been edited.

      I was comparing iPod touch 5g with and without camera. No one said anything about the iPod touch 4g. I know that's trash. I have it. Barely runs iOS 6. I'd happy to restore it down to iOS 5. I have all the shsh. Any way to do that?

      4G still has A4 processor right? If you have 5.X shsh for it you can use iFaith or redsnow to make a custom stitched 5.X firmware for it and restore to that.

      My mistake then; I thought you were comparing the 4G and 5G. Sorry about that

      Well, to Craigslist and amazon to sell my 4g iPod touch.
      Anyone know a good price to sell one for?
