Version 3.0

Posted on September 20, 2013

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.

Version 2.4.2 — Late Summer 2013

Posted on August 21, 2013

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. 


Version 2.4.1 — Summer 2013

Posted on July 26, 2013

This is a minor update to 2.4 that fixes some minor layout bugs as well as a mistake related to version 6.1.4. See this tweet from Benoit St-Pierre for more info.

Version 2.4 — Summer 2013

Posted on June 28, 2013

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). 

Clicking on the image above will download a vector PDF that you can print at high quality.

Version 2.2 — Spring 2013

Posted on June 24, 2013

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.
