iPhone Specs Matrix 1.1 with iOS 14 compatibility

I just made a quick update of the iPhone Specs Matrix to include compatibility with iOS 14.

There’s also a printer-friendly version.

This year, all iPhones running the last version (currently 13.5.1) will be able to update to the new OS. So no phone will get stuck on iOS 13, just like two years ago when iOS 12 was released for all phones supporting iOS 11.

Other than iOS 14 compatibility, the new matrix also adds the iPhone SE 2nd Generation, fixes the labels of the Geekbench result rows (hat tip to Matthew) and replaces “Apple Pay” with “NFC”. In the NFC row, I tried to describe the different sets of NFC features:
Apple Pay only – device has a NFC chip but it is not accessible from your app.
read/write – device supports reading and (starting with iOS 13) writing NFC tags from your app.
bg read – In addition to read/write, the device will let you get background tag reading notifications in your app.

Thanks to Daniel for this suggestion!

If you spot any errors, please let me know in the comments. And now back to watching WWDC!
