Pokemon Go Ends Support For Older iPhones and iPads

Screenshot 2018 01 08 11 10 28

Dedicated players with older iOS devices don't have much time to prepare themselves for this update, with it set to take effect on February 28th, 2018.

Once the update is released, Pokemon GO players on outdated devices will no longer be able to access their accounts or use PokeCoins. After this date, "Trainers using affected devices may no longer be able to access their Pokémon GO accounts from that device, or use their PokéCoins or other items in their Bags".

While Niantic doesn't specify which improvements are making non-iOS 11 devices obsolete, the addition of an AR+ mode that utilizes Apple's ARKit technology was the first sign that Pokemon Go was leaving old devices behind.

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. Developer Niantic has announced that a new update is soon coming that will make the game unplayable on iOS versions older than 11. The percentage gets higher when you include even older phones like the 4 and 4s.

Pokemon GO was originally released in the summer of 2016 and saw millions of gamers leave their homes in search of Pokemon to capture.

Niantic revealed through an OTA update sent to affected devices that support for their systems will end on February 28.
