In addition, Apple Pay has been added to the key.
3.1.1 — Fixed some device model typos
3.1.2 — Changed Spring to Autumn (thanks to André S)
Spring is upon us and with it the much anticipated update, featuring the iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina.
Version 3.0 of the the matrix is a huge leap forward not only from the very first matrix but also in terms of design. We worked really hard in collaboration with The Iconfactory to bring the feel of iOS 7 as-well-as even more information density.
Version 3.0 packs more information into (roughly) the same area. It now lists each devices hardware compatibility along side the familiar OS versions, Model IDs and Instruction set.
As alway there is a vector PDF available (just click on the image above) to you can print it out at any size you like!
There are some items missing from this version, most notably usage stats. Currently, iOS 7 is increasing its percentage share by about 1% every hour or so. With this in mind we decided to remove the stats until things settle down. Why not visit David Smiths excellent iOS Stats page for hourly updates.
In addition, iPhone 5c and 5s Geekbench scores are absent. Due to lack of solid information (and the addition of Geekbench 3.0) we again erred on the side of caution and removed this data, rest assured we will update the matrix will all this info as soon as we can.
If you spot any mistakes or have feedback please contact us.
Don't forget to sign up to be informed when the iPad version is released.
Update : Fixed a few mistakes and omissions. Thanks to Mathias Ebell.
This minor update finally fixes the long standing typo in the URL and updates the iOS 7 beta and build number.
The JPG is also now 2000 pixels wide to better support retina displays and allow for the loupe on the home page.
As you can see the layout is starting to look quite cramped. When new devices are released int he Autumn we are going to seriously consider a complete redesign.
Version 2.4 adds iOS 7, updated stats (we now use Apple's official published stats) and reassessed support colouring.
In summery you should't supporting anything < iOS 5.0 and in practice only support Retina class devices and iOS 6 (+ iPad Mini).

During the spring of 2013 the matrix required some "refactoring" so we could publish in multiple languages. This was subsequently used as an excuse to release v2.2 with updated iOS versions and usage stats.
First release of a German language version.
Our first release of the Dutch version.
Business cards sized sticker version of the matrix were produced to hand out al NSConf 5.
The release of iOS 6.1, some changes to what device/OS combination should be supported and a minor typo required a minor update in January 2013.
After the launch of the iPhone 5 and the 4th generation iPad (both with A6 processors), version 2 (of the redesign) was released. It again increased the information density and improved the layout.
The original release had a few errors so v1.2 was quickly release to fix these issues.
In September 2012 the iOS Support Matrix was completely redesigned. It included much more data and an enhanced layout. However, there were a few errors that we quickly corrected in v1.2.
In September the entire matrix was redesigned. Adding much more data and an enhanced layout, however this first release had a few errors :(
Increased interest in the matrix required a new version with iPod data and a better layout. This was the first to be released (explicitly) under a Creative Commons licence.
Later in July a more comprehensive and combined version was created (still no iPods). Notable changes are the release dates of each device, and the inclusion of the (as yet) unreleased iPhone 5.
