The long-awaited iOS 13 update is coming this Thursday and the list of compatible devices starts with the iPhone 6s/6s Plus and the iPhone SE. The changes it will bring include a Dark Mode, faster Face ID, a new home screen, and more. Sadly, iPad users will have to wait at least two more weeks until their slates will get updated as well.

Ready or not, here it comes: iOS 13 is scheduled to arrive this Thursday, but iPad users will not get the new piece of code at the same time. Apple still has to work on the upcoming iPadOS for a bit since its release date is set for September 30 — about two weeks before the launch of the next-gen iPad Pro.

Without further ado, this is the list of devices that iOS 13 will support:

Before proceeding with the update, the user should perform a backup using iTunes or iCloud and be sure that their handsets have at least 3 GB of free space available, although having 6 GB would not be a bad idea at all. The update will be available via OTA, but those who are planning to perform a clean installation using iTunes will also require a Lightning cable — just be sure it is a reliable one if you are a part of that crowd.

These being said, we can only wait for the official arrival of iOS 13, which will finally bring a Dark Mode to Apple's handsets alongside a new home screen, faster Face ID, and more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
