How Download and install older version Apps

“ if you using a older device of iPhone cannot be able to download latest version App now due to 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 Yes this true but it not means you cannot be able to use those Apps


it not means app will work the current version not Support your iOS version but, Yes you can be able to download those apps Right now Now, Most of you are running a previous version I Mean to Say that Latest release now the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro 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 specs why the firmware not capable

E.g First iPhone 3Gs or iPhone 4

The iPhone 3Gs V/s iPhone 4
OSRunning 6.1.6Running 7.1.2
CPU600 MHz Cortex-A81.0 GHz Cortex-A8
Memory256 MB512 MB
Camera3.15 MP5 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
OSRunning 9.3.6Running 12
CPUDual core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A9Dual core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A9
Memory512 MB1 GB
Camera8 MP8 MP

So For The iOS 9.3.6 is Last update for the iPhone 4s now but the iPhone 5S Running now with the iOS 12 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
OSRunning 10.3.3Running 12
CPUDual core 1.3 GHz SWiftDual core 1.3 GHz Cortex A9
Memory1GB1 GB
Camera8 MP8 MP

if you see iPhone 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 

iPhone 5s V/s 6

The iPhone 5s V/s iPhone 6
OSRunning 12Running 12
CPUDual core 1.3 GHz Cortex A9Dual core 1.4 GHz Typhoon
Memory1GB1 GB
Camera8 MP8 MP

In 2020 both iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 getting old soon apps will move to iOS 13 for but still there is plenty time to wait due iOS 13 is latest as long as iOS 14 will hit there is no surprise we need wait for the update

Due to the older version of iOS is the reason why the current iOS 12 also getting old now i thought iPhone 5s and 6 owner will experience issue while downloading apps when they moved to iOS 13

Now Back to Main Point   

How to Download Old iPhone Apps

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  

This Requires No PC & Mac

What if Not Download app before

if you won’t downloaded apps before in your iPhone Apple says “Your iOS version not compatible requires Update To iOS 8,9 or 10,11,12” 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 iOS 6.1.6
  • iPhone 4 iOS 7.1.2
  • iPhone 4s iOS 9.3.6
  • iPhone 5 iOS 10.3.3
  • iPhone 5c iOS 10.3.3
  • iPhone 6 iOS 12.4.6

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

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

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 Having any problem feel free to share with us If this helps you out don’t forget to share
