iOS apps now available on older devices

If like me you are still clinging on to your iPad1, iPhone 4 or old iPod touch, but repeatably get frustrated when attempting to download an app and it’s not supported on your current iOS device. Then this latest news will be music to your ears.

Now, when you try to download an app Apple asks ‘would you like to install the last compatible version?’. This could be over a year old but either way you still get to use it. I’ve successfully downloaded an old version of the highly recommended music software Traktor to my iPad 1. I previously used it on the iPhone 4 and found it too fiddly, but on the iPad it works like a dream. Thank you Apple.

Give it a try, it might teach your old device some new tricks.
