If you look at the compatibility lists for iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey, they’re going to look very similar to last year. Except for a handful of MacBooks and iMacs, every device that got an update last year will get one this year, which is great news if you have an older Apple device.

But depending on just how old your device is, you might not get all the features Apple is releasing this fall. Here’s how it all breaks down.
