All iOS versions at a glance (from the first iPhone OS to today)

With the first iPhone in 2007, Apple also released the first mobile operating system for this and other devices. At that time, the portable offshoot of OS X on the Mac was still called “iPhone OS”. Later, the system based on Darwin, built on the XNU kernel and built in ARM architecture was simply called “iOS”.

It also functions as an operating system on the Apple iPod Touch. It was also used on the iPad until 2019, before it was replaced by the standalone iPadOS. Here you can find an overview of all iOS versions, with release dates and further information.
