Nine iOS 7 Features That Aren't Available on All Apple Devices

Apple released iOS 7 on Wednesday. It's a fabulous update to Apple's mobile operating system, but there are nine new features that aren't available on certain older models that can otherwise run iOS 7.

iOS 7 can be installed on iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5c, and 5s; iPad 2, iPad with Retina Display (iPad 3 and iPad 4); iPad mini; and iPod touch (5th Generation). Apple listed nine different features that aren't available on all of those devices, and we broke that list down into table format to make it easier to digest.

If a new feature in iOS 7 isn't listed below, it should be available on all iOS 7-compatible devices.
