On the eve of the iOS 7 launch, Apple starts to offer the users of older devices with the latest compatible version of apps

According to Apple Insider, due to Wedenesday’s scheduled launch of iOS 7, Apple is providing the customers having the older hardware with the last compatible version of an App which is supported by their legacy firmware.

The revealed app, provides the users of older Apple devices, like the iPhone 3G or 3GS, with the accessibility to download a compatible version, in case the users find their devices are not supported by the most recent update.

According to the new system, if a user of older legacy version tries to install such an app which is no longer compatible with the operating system running on their devices, a pop up window will appear which will ask if the user  is interested to download the latest update of the software. The feature enables extension of the life span for older iOS hardware which is not capable of running the latest version of iOS.   

With the release of Apple’s latest mobile operating system - the iOS 7, scheduled to be launched on Wednesday, the developers are quite busy with making their apps compatible with the latest version of the iOS. As the updates of software take place with the advancement of the new hardwares, it is inevitable for the older devices of not being compatible with the updated version as the latest app might have incompatible features.  

However, Apple’s iOS 7 is expected to be available for download beginning Wednesday.
