New AI features won't work on older iPhones: check if yours is listed

New Features AI features expected in iOS 18 may only work on the latest iPhone models. These features will require modern devices with adequate computing power, so older iPhone models may not be compatible.

The new AI capabilities in iOS 18 are expected to work only on iPhone 16, which will be released this fall, as well as on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models. This is due to the significant difference in Neural Processing Unit (NPU) performance between different models.

New features will require a powerful NPU with high performance. It is present in the new proprietary processors of Apple, which are used in the Pro lines. But in budget chips for younger iPhone models, NPU performance is significantly lower. New AI capabilities in iOS 18 are expected to include object recognition, image analysis, language processing, and neural network computing. Their work will require adequate computing power, which may be lacking on older models.
