Identify iOS 14 compatible devices

Has anyone found a quick and easy way to identify iOS 14 compatible devices due to iOS 14.4 security patch required to be applied.

As only certain models can upgrade to iOS 14, rather than listing out all models that can in a compliance policy query in UEM platform and if not on iOS 14.4 then we need to target these devices.

DEVICES THAT WILL SUPPORT IOS 14, IPADOS 14

MobileIron Core Label & Compliance Policy Query

(“common.model” starts with “iPhone 11” OR “common.model” starts with “iPhone X” OR “common.model” starts with “iPhone 8” OR “common.model” starts with “iPhone 7” OR “common.model” starts with “iPhone 6S” OR “common.model” starts with “iPhone SE” OR “common.model” ends with “Pro” OR “common.model” = “iPad (6th gen)” OR “common.model” = “iPad (5th gen)” OR “common.model” = “iPad Mini (5th gen)” OR “common.model” = “iPad Mini 4” OR “common.model” = “iPad Air (3rd gen)” OR “common.model” = “iPad Air 2”) AND (“common.last_connected_at” >= “now-1d” AND “common.os_version” != “14.4”)

Starts with :

  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 6S
  • iPhone SE (2020)
  • iPhone SE (2016)

Ends with :

API documentation is here:
https://ipswdownloads.docs.apiary.io/#reference/api/ipswversion/v4.-get-ipsw-list-for-version?console=1

Here is a simple way of getting this data via powershell

$IosVersion = Read-Host -Prompt "Enter iOS Version"
$ApiURL = "https://api.ipsw.me/v4/ipsw/"
$InvokeURL = $ApiURL + $IosVersion
$data = Invoke-RestMethod -method GET -uri $InvokeURL
foreach ($device in $data) {
    $Hardwarename = Invoke-RestMethod -method GET -uri "https://api.ipsw.me/v4/device/$($device.identifier)"
    Write-Host "$($hardwarename.name)"
}
