List of iOS devices

The reverse sides of an original iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPhone 4.
A size comparison of three iPhones, an original iPad, and a Magic Mouse.

This is a list and comparison of devices designed and marketed by Apple Inc. (formerly Apple Computer Inc.) that run a Unix-like operating system named iOS, often colloquially referred to simply as iDevices. The devices include the iPhone multimedia smartphone, the iPod Touch, which is similar to the iPhone but has no cell phone hardware, and the iPad tablet computer. All three devices function as digital audio and portable media players and Internet clients. The Apple TV, which ran iOS from the second generation of hardware onwards, is a set-top box for streaming media from local sources and from certain internet services to a connected television set, and has no screen of its own.

The operating system on iOS devices can be updated through iTunes, or, on iOS 5 or later, using firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) updates, more commonly known as OTA updates. A major version of iOS tends to be released every time a new type of iPhone is launched, (about once a year) and is normally free, although iPod Touch users were formerly required to pay for the update. Apple upgrades its products' hardware periodically (approximately yearly). There have been eight major releases of iPhone (original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 5S), five of iPod Touch (first to fourth generations and fifth generation), five of iPad (first generation, iPad 2, third and fourth generations, and iPad Air), and two of iPad Mini (first and second generations).

Comparison of models[edit]

Battery life[edit]

Side view of the original iPhone (right), iPhone 3G/3GS (center), and iPhone 4 (left). The original is made of aluminum and plastic; the iPhone 3G/3GS is made completely from a hard plastic material;[119] the iPhone 4/4S is made of stainless steel and hardened glass.
The reverse of the iPhone 3G (left) is almost identical to that of the 3GS, differentiated only by the latter's reflective text.
The fronts of the original iPhone (left) and the iPhone 3G are almost indistinguishable.
The original iPod Touch (left), viewed next to an iPhone 3G (right). The original iPod Touch is easily identified by its black border.
An iPhone 3GS pictured beside an iPhone 4S.
An iPhone 3GS (top) compared to an iPhone 4S (bottom). The 3GS has a semi-curved back (like the iPhone 3G), while the 4S has a flat back (like the iPhone 4).
An iPhone 4S (left) compared to an iPhone 5S (right). The 4S has a 3.5" screen (like the iPhone 4), while the 5S has a 4" screen (like the iPhone 5).
The original iPad (left) compared to the iPad 2 (right).

Apple runs tests on pre-production units to determine battery life. However, these are purported maximums ("up to"), and actual user experiences vary.[43][120][121][122][123] All numbers are in hours unless specified.

Display[edit]

The 3½-inch display introduced with the original iPhone was almost unchanged in all models before 2010. The iPad has a larger display and also uses a different aspect ratio and resolution. The iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and fourth generation iPod Touch keep the physical dimensions of prior models, but double the resolution in both dimensions, thereby quadrupling the number of pixels in the same amount of space. The iPhone 5 was the first departure from the traditional iPhone and iPod Touch screen size, increasing it from 3.5" to 4", and the resolution was increased to include the extra screen space.
