Pokemon GO Will Cease to Work on Older iPhones and iPads

Apparently, the new change will take effect on February 28 via an update to the game.

The thing about Apple is that for the most part, they tend to support devices for years on end (iPhone battery scandal aside). After that Trainers who are using affected devices will no longer be able to access their "Pokemon Go" accounts from their smartphone or tablet. Not only that, the 4th generation iPad, which was released in 2012 and all earlier iPad versions will also experience the support drop on the same date.

Wenger still riled by Hazard penalty award
Wenger's decision to make nine changes backfired, with the understudies delivering a listless display at the City Ground. He said he's not sure where he'll be sitting for Wednesday's game, but that he "will try to find a different place".

As announced by the Pokemon Go company, players who are using iPhone 5/5c, iPad 2, iPad mini (first generation), iPad (third generation), iPad (fourth generation), and devices still running on iOS 8, will no longer be able to play Pokemon Go, and Niantic have discontinued support for the same. If you can update to iOS 11, then you're good. If you're playing Pokemon Go on any of these devices, you're going to have no other choice but to upgrade.

"Pokemon Go" will no longer be playable in a couple of iOS-running devices starting next month.

Even with the smartphone docked in, it weighs just 1.25kg, which is at par with most ultra-thin notebooks with a 13-inch screen. The phone features a 5.7-inch display and its touchpad can be used as a second screen to access the apps, tools and more.

In a post published on the Pokemon GO website, developer Niantic explained how a new update to the augmented reality game would "push the application beyond the capabilities of the operating systems on such devices". While dropping support from older phones will probably affect only a small portion of Pokemon Go players, the announcement was not met with much enthusiasm from current players.
