iOS 7 is the next generation of the iPad and iPhone operating system, due to be released to the public this fall. It will be compatible with the iPad 2 and above, but … there’s a little more to compatibility than just that.
Apple has made clear that not all features of iOS 7 will work on all compatible devices – and there are some stark differences between features available on latest gen devices and those that are a couple of years old. The iPad 2 is a clear example of this – according to a features table put together by Gizmodo it will be getting only *one* of the major new features of iOS 7 – iTunes Radio.
The table also shows that the iPad 3 will not get the AirDrop feature (for easy sharing of photos and documents with nearby friends). Here’s the table showing which features will be available on which iPad model:
If you’re an iPad 2 owner and you’re excited about iOS 7 features it might be a good time to start looking at upgrade options.
