Update: This page claims that the i Pad 2, i Pad Mini, and 5th-generation i Pod Touch are supported by i OS 10, but Apple's developer beta site doesn't have beta builds available for those devices, and the support list used in the WWDC presentation didn't list any of them either.We've emailed Apple to confirm which page is correct and will update again when we get a response.Update 2: According to Apple's official press release, the i Phone 4S, i Pad 2, i Pad 3, i Pad mini, and fifth-generation i Pod Touch will run i OS 10.SAN FRANCISCO—Apple has just announced the hardware support list for i OS 10, the next version of its smartphone and tablet OS that will be released in beta form soon and in final form later this year.I’ve written a detailed step-by-step method that will help you get the look you want.While the step-by-step method in the link is for the i Pod Touch 3G, the i Pad 1 will require the same process.
Tip - If connected to your computer, you may need to disable your firewall and anitvirus software temporarily. Be sure and backup your i Pad before the i OS update.
At this point, your software is listed at i OS 5.1.1 because it is the last version of i OS provided for the i Pad 1.
In order to get something similar to the i OS 7 look, you’ll need to jailbreak your i Pad 1.
After a surprising stay of execution last year, it looks like Apple is set to stop providing updates for a fair handful of older devices: the i Phone 4S, the i Pad 2, the original i Pad Mini, the 3rd-generation i Pad, and the fifth-generation i Pod Touch.
Here's the full list of supported hardware: All the dropped devices have something in common: some version of the Apple A5 So C.
The first Retina i Pad used a faster A5X variant, and the the third-generation Apple TV used a version with a single CPU core (Apple dropped support for that Apple TV box last year).
