iOS 13 has just been released for public beta testers, but can your existing iPhone run the new operating system?
Well, if you have an iPhone from the iPhone 6S and above you'll be fine - also if you have a new, latest-generation iPod touch. The iPhone SE also survives to die another day as it has essentially the same internal components as the iPhone 6S.
What about the iPad we hear you cry? Well, things have got a little more complicated. Apple has announced it is splitting off the iPad operating system as iPad OS. Apple wants to provide iPad users with more complex, PC and Mac-like features and obviously believes a separate approach is the best way to do this without making the software too bloated for phones.
We expect the finished version of iOS 13 to be available for general download in September.
