Which iPhones, iPads, and iPods support iOS 10?

Apple's latest mobile operating system arrives today, and here is a list of all the devices that support iOS 10.

The iPhone 7 will ship out with iOS 10, but that doesn’t mean that you need a brand-new Apple device to install iOS 10.

First previewed during WWDC, iOS 10 features a redesigned Lock screen, super-sized emoji and other iMessage apps, as well as Siri support for third-party services. After months in public beta, the official release of iOS 10 is finally here. You can install the free upgrade right now, but only on a iOS 10-compatible device from the list below.

To upgrade your supported device to iOS 10, go to Software Update in the Settings app. It should be available as an over-the-air update. As always, it’s smart to perform a backup before installing the new operating system, so that you can revert back should you encounter any issues.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
