Apple App Store Now Allows Older Versions of Apps to Be Downloaded

Older compatible apps for now available on the App Store

Traditionally the only way to download the latest apps via the App Store was to be running the latest version of iOS. That meant that people who didn't upgrade their operating system for various reasons were unable to download many of the apps available. The App Store has now been updated to introduce a legacy app download option.

What this means is users who haven't upgraded to the latest operating system will be offered versions of applications that are compatible with their OS rather than simply being told upgrade. This is also in part a response to some of the aging devices out there that are incompatible with the latest operating system, such as the first-generation iPad.

This move ensures that first-generation iPad owners will still be able to download applications want to. Now when a user tries to download an application that is incompatible with their operating system they will see a pop-up that asks and they want to download a compatible version. They can then click download and go on about their business.
