Pokémon GO Won't Support Older iPhones and iPads in Next Update

Pokémon GO Won't Support Older iPhones and iPads in Next Update

It is also worth mentioning that the older devices will be dropped to accommodate improvements to Pokémon GO that pushed the application outside the capacities of the OS on such devices. According to a new report, Niantic, the company behind Pokémon GO, has announced that it will stop supporting Apple devices that are running all iOS versions older than iOS 11.

Niantic says these changes will take place from February 28 this year. Older iPhone models, like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C, will be affected by the incoming update, coming February 28th.

It's not clear how many Pokemon Go players use these older devices, but a recent Business Insider chart shows about 6% of iPhone 5 and 5c users in the world, as of April 2017. Afterwards, Pokemon Go "may" not work on those devices, nor will players be able to access PokeCoins or use items from their bags.

The visiting skipper had a awful final day of the Test series as his side succumbed to a 4-0 drubbing. He said: "I think, to be honest, we've been outplayed in the key moments of each game".

Niantic has already ended support for Pokemon GO on millions of older iOS devices, but the developer behind the hit mobile game isn't done shifting its support plans yet. Another 4% of iPhone users continued to use even older models as of previous year. If you're playing Pokemon Go on any of these devices, you're going to have no other choice but to upgrade.

Fans of Pokemon Go who haven't upgraded their phones or tablets since 2013 or earlier are about to have to find a new way to catch 'em all.
