Apple traditionally maintains compatibility of devices from the test phases to the stableversions of its OS, which should guarantee security patches for these iPads—at least until iPadOS 17 arrives in September 2023.
Here is the list of iPads compatible with iPadOS 16:
- iPad Pro (all models)
- iPad (5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th generation)
- iPad Mini (5th and 6th generation)
- iPad Air (3rd, 4th and 5th generation)
To find out if your model is among the iPads that will receive the update to the new software version, simply go to Settings > General > About, this way you can check the name of your model. Another option is to access the software settings for updates, by clicking Settings > Software Update. Good luck!
