iOS 8 - What iPads and iPhones are Compatible with iOS 8?

Apple has been talking about iOS 8 for a while, but I still get tons of questions about what devices will be able to run the newest iteration of Apple's mobile device operating system.  There have been a lot of rumors and talk about this -- but with Apple's big announcements last week that included the Apple Watch (I want one) and new iPhones -- the cat is out of the bag!  This is especially important for schools and classrooms who have invested in 1:1 iPad programs!  Get ready now!

Here is the breakdown of iOS Compatible Devices:

iPhone 6 Plus
iPod Touch 5th Generation
iPad 2
iPad 3
iPad 4 (Retina)
iPad Air (Retina)

With the release date in looking in October, now is the time to check your device and make sure it is on the list!  Remember that just like iOS 7: Siri will only be available on the iPhone 4S and above, iPad 3 and above and iPad Minis.

So get ready to say, "Hey Siri" and iOS 8 on!
