When Apple releases iOS 17, the update will add Contact Posters, FaceTime improvements and a new journaling app, to name a few things. Apple unveiled the update alongside new Macs, various software for all Apple devices and the company’s first augmented reality headset called Vision Pro at WWDC earlier this year.

Which iPhone models will get iOS 17?

According to the iOS 17 landing page on Apple’s website, the following iPhone models will get the update when it’s available:

  • iPhone 14
  • iPhone 14 Plus
  • iPhone 14 Pro
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 mini
  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12
  • iPhone 12 mini
  • iPhone 12 Pro
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone SE (2nd generation or later)

It’s a long list, but also one that leaves the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X behind. That means if you currently have those iPhone models, iOS 16 is your last major OS update. You will likely receive security updates for the near future, but any new features that are part of iOS 17 or later won’t come to your phone.

But, there’s some good news. By the time iOS 17 is available, Apple will have announced the iPhone 15 lineup and you can either pick a new device or find a deal on a slightly older iPhone.
