Here are the iPads that can upgrade to iPadOS 18

Published on

On June 10, 2024, at its annual developer conference in Cupertino, Apple announced iPadOS 18, the next version of its operating system for tablets. iPadOS 18 shares a lot of features with iOS 18 (check out its list of supported devices here and official wallpapers here), but there are also new and exclusive things for iPad, like the all-new Calculator app (no joke), significant upgrades to handwriting with Apple Pencil, remote control and more.

Developers and users can already install the first beta version of iPadOS 18, provided they have one of the following iPads that support the latest operating system:

iPad iPad mini iPad Air iPad Pro (11 and 12.9 inches)
  • 7th generation iPad
  • 8th generation iPad
  • 9th generation iPad
  • iPad 10th generation
  • iPad Air 3
  • iPad Air 4
  • iPad Air 5 (M1)
  • 11-inch iPad Air 6 (M2)
  • 12.9-inch iPad Air 6 (M2)
  • iPad Pro 2018 (A12X)
  • iPad Pro 2020 (A12Z)
  • iPad Pro 2021 (M1)
  • iPad Pro 2022 (M2)
  • iPad Pro 2024 (M4)

Some users will not find their iPads in the list of supported devices. Unlike macOS Sequoia, which released only one Mac model (the MacBook Air Retina 2018), iPadOS 18 abandoned quite a few tablets, leaving their owners stuck forever with iPadOS 17:

  • iPad 6th generation (2018)
  • iPad Pro 12.9 inch second generation (2017 with A10X chip and home button)
  • iPad Pro 10.5 inches (2017 model with A10X chip and home button)

The first public beta of iPadOS 18 will be available in July 2024. As usual, the final launch is expected this fall, alongside the release of the upcoming iPhone 16 series. You can learn more about iPadOS 18 and its capabilities and compatibility in the blog post On Apple’s official website.
