The iPhone 7 will ship out with iOS 10, but that doesn’t mean that you need a brand-new Apple device to install iOS 10.

First previewed during WWDC, iOS 10 features a redesigned Lock screen, super-sized emoji and other iMessage apps, as well as Siri support for third-party services. After months in public beta, the official release of iOS 10 is finally here. You can install the free upgrade right now, but only on a iOS 10-compatible device from the list below.

To upgrade your supported device to iOS 10, go to Software Update in the Settings app. It should be available as an over-the-air update. As always, it’s smart to perform a backup before installing the new operating system, so that you can revert back should you encounter any issues.
