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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
