Download older version of iOS apps in iTunes How [Solved]

How Download and install older version Apps

“While if you using a older device of iPhone cannot be able to download latest version App now Coz the App Version not Compatible to your version” in this post you will see how you can be able to do that so keep going 

While Saying Yes this true but it not means you cannot be able to use those apps

But it not means you shouldn’t able to app now however the current version not Support your iOS version but, Yes you can be able to download those apps Right now

Why you cannot use latest version right Now
Now, Most of you are running a previous version  I Mean to Say the Latest release now the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus this phones are truly a new level of the hardware means the firmware its hardware reliable for the latest Apps and the software updates As talking about the Update while the comparing your Hardware there are no similar spec why the firmware not capable

E.g First iPhone 3Gs or iPhone 4

The iPhone 3Gs V/s iPhone 4
Running 6.1.6
Running 7.1.2
600 MHz Cortex-A8
1.0 GHz Cortex-A8
256 MB
512 MB
3.15 MP
5 MP
For this Specification iPhone 4 and the 3Gs was enough as this firmware with following update
Using A iPhone now you should know that right now few of using a older version of the iOS like 6 or the 7 , 8 later seven or later  what while the basic problem with hardware it should not capable to Run the Latest iOS now sad part of you cannot able to use those as termed software updates. Comparing with hardware of the Apples iPhone 4s and the latter release iPhone 5s

iPhone 4s vs iPhone 5s

The iPhone 4S V/s iPhone 5S
Running 9.3.5
Running 12
Dual core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A9
Dual core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A9
512 MB
1 GB
8 MP
8 MP

So For The iOS 9.3.4 There is Last update for the iPhone 4s now but the iPhone 5S Running now with the iOS 10 now when comes to compare with iPhone 4S and the 5S

iPhone 5/5c vs iPhone 5s

The iPhone 5/5c V/s iPhone 5s
Running 10.3.3
Running 12
Dual core 1.3 GHz SWift
Dual core 1.3 GHz Cortex A9
1 GB
8 MP
8 MP
Now on the Other hand if 5 and 5C running last version of the iOS 10 not eligible for the iOS 11 but iPhone 5s running now the iOS 12 but there is doubt about iOS 13 for iPhone 5s 
Due to the old version of iOS is the reason why the current iOS 12 apps are not supported but it doesn’t mean you can’t able to download apps that were running before on old iOS versions 
Now Back to Main Point   
There is two to way to Download old apps

With NO Jailbreak method

This  quite easy and you know that most Of Apps won’t run on iOS 7, iOS 8,iOS 9 and iOS 10 You will notice this error “This Apps requires iOs 8,9 or 10 Reality is that you can still able to download apps last supported to your iPhone  

What if Not Download app before

if you won’t download apps before in your iPhone Apple says “Your iOS version not compatible requires Update To iOS 8,9 or 10” in that case Don’t Worry 
First download the iTunes ( for e.g Snapchat)

so you need to know that if you want to get previous version of app on your iPhone then take a chill and follow me what i doing Right now

I know you are going to downlaod apps which don’t downlaod earlier version of iOS so you are stuck at “This Application requires iOS 8.0 or later for iOS 7 or 6 user” 

Or for iOS 9.3.4 user getting “This Application requires iOS 10 or later”
for iOS 10 users getting “This Application Requires iOS 11 or later”

Here an Example

So i Stuck at this point(now what)
Also Read if, iTunes not Showing App store

Open iTunes(Mac or PC)

Search for Snapchat (download it less then 1MB)

Now back to your iPhone

So however this App is upgraded to iOS 8 but there is previous version of App available 

so you need same to do with

  • iPhone 3Gs
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4s
  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 5c

(it doesn’t mean if you download older apps will work )

Hope now you how to do that

Jailbreak method

How I forget to show you about the Jail breaking method
how it works and use it
While using Apple App Store On the iPhone Requires Log in Detail to Download Any Apps or downloading any previous version of the App but this doesn’t require Using a Third party App store requires to Jail breaking

Why Should Install Third Party App Store

Many you thinking why should I install a third party Apps store there lots of benefits using a Third party Apps Store while I used most of the third party apps store on iPhone
Especially ,If you using older version of iOS previous version can be easily downloadable Apps from the using Third App Store while it not possible to download with the App Store.

if Jailbroken  Go to Cydia

Add Repo of Appcake

 Download also App Sync Unified

Now on Cydia Download App Cake And Download apps 

if you find Unable to Purchase Error

Unable to Purchase Instagram

so this issue can be fixed as whole process will same

first download app through iTunes less then 1 MB paused it

back to iPhone go to Purchased Section

Purchased iOS apps

Tap on Download icon

Press Download icon

Go for Download

Final Download

Hopefully fixed

There is previous can able to See or download the latest one
