iPhone 3G and 3GS Owners Can Now Download Older Versions of Apps From the App Store

iPhone 3G owners can finally stop threatening to throw away their phones. Users with older iPhones can now download legacy versions of apps that no longer support their device. For example, the iPhone 3G only supports iOS 4.2.1, and iPhone 3GS users will not be able to download iOS 7 when it is officially launched on September 18th. This causes a problem for users with older phones because most apps currently require iOS 4.3 or later to work.

App Store Legacy App

As you can see from the screenshot above, the App Store will now give you the option to install the "last compatible version" of an app. So if you're stuck at iOS 4.2.1, but the app you want to install now requires iOS 4.3 to work, you can now download the 4.2.1 version of that app.

This is great news for people with jailbroken devices and older devices like the original iPhone. It is also good to know that you can now hold onto your iPhone even longer than before, and can ignore future iOS updates if you choose too.

Also don't forget, this does not mean you will have access to every app in the App Store. It will only work with apps that originally supported your current version of iOS.
