Apple's iOS 10, the mobile operating system introduced Monday at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference, comes with a slew of new features, such as facial recognition, better Siri, an all-new iMessage, and so on.

Following is the list of devices that will be able to upgrade to iOS 10:
- The iPhone 6s
- The iPhone 6s Plus
- The iPhone 6
- The iPhone 6 Plus
- The iPhone SE
- The iPhone 5S
- The iPhone 5C
- The iPhone 5
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch
- iPad Pro 9.7-inch
- The iPad Air 2
- iPad Air
- iPad 4th generation
- The iPad Mini 4
- The iPad Mini 3
- The iPad Mini 2
The list of devices that are not compatible with the latest iOS include:
- The iPad with Retina Display (3rd Gen) and older 9.7-inch iPads
- The iPad Mini
- The iPod Touch 5th-generation and older iPod Touch models
- The iPhone 4S and older iPhone models
iOS 10 will be available this fall as a free upgrade.
