Pokémon GO Won't Support Older iPhones and iPads in Next Update

Pokémon GO Won't Support Older iPhones and iPads in Next Update

Pokemon Go developer Niantic announced this relatively big change earlier today, confirming that iPhones as recent as iPhone 5 and 5c models won't be able to play the game following the next update. If you can update to iOS 11, then you're good.

These users will lose access to any in-app purchased items, unless they upgrade their hardware to continue playing. Support now starts with the iPhone 5S released back in 2013, while those affected will be able to easily move to other devices and log in with their account. No doubt, players who have invested real money into the game via microtransactions will be fairly vexed that they're being ditched for not having the latest iPhone or iPad.

Niantic says these changes will take place from February 28 this year.

For those who don't know, Kyogre is one of the three Gen 3 Legendary Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region games.

YouTube Finally Issues Response to Logan Paul Controversy
YouTube says he eventually took it down himself, but not before it was viewed more than six million times. Paul also won't appear in the upcoming fourth season of the YouTube Red original sitcom " Foursome ".

Pokemon GO can be downloaded now on iOS and Android. This comes almost a week after the third beta was released to the same party.

We would imagine that following Groudon's exit, Niantic will release Kyogre, followed by fellow legendary Rayquaza a month later in February. Any of you that do, though, you're out of luck, I guess. There's so many more players that have since given up on the EX Raids.

It's also worth noting that Pokemon GO may well see a noticeable drop in players once the update rolls out.
