What devices can run iPadOS 14?

  • iPad Air 2 and later
  • iPad Pro (all models)
  • iPad 5th generation and later
  • iPad mini 4 and later





If you have a model older than this, you can still update to the latest version compatible with that device, even after your device stops being supported.

Nope

All iPads have a certain Apple support life.

Anywhere from 4-6 years, or so.

Third party apps developers will continue to supporting unsupported Apple devices for another, additional two years, or so.



Your iPad is too old for any more upgrades/updates.



Sorry.



If you need/want an iPad with an up to date iPadOS with access to current, updated apps, then you really need to seriously consider a new iPad model OR a much, MUCH “newer” and less expensive, used iPad models, from better known, trusted Apple product/device retailers/resellers, locally or online, capable of running the latest iPadOS versions.

There are plenty of newer, older iPad models that can run the latest, current versions of iPadOS.





Sorry & Best of Luck to You!
