If you are a fan of Niantic's most important game, but your Apple mobile is not one of the newest, then we have bad news for you and that is that Pokémon Go will leave to work on some iPhones.
The game developer has notified that it intends to no longer support Apple devices that cannot be upgraded to the version of its iOS 11 operating system, meaning that terminals from 2013 and earlier, such as the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C, will no longer be able to use Pokémon Go.
If you have an iPhone 5 say goodbye to Pokémon Go
The improvements that Nianctic incorporates to Pokémon Go are notable, for more than a year this augmented reality game has been growing and offering better performance.
We have seen how important functions have been added such as dynamic weather or adaptability to the characteristics of augmented reality that now requires the Apple's new operating system.
But as in any ecosystem that is growing, even the virtual one, it is necessary to leave aside the legacy that generates too much weight, for this reason the company has confirmed which requires focusing on development for new versions of Apple's operating system and putting aside the system that is no longer supported.
For now it is not known if the same would happen with Android, but if so, support for older versions would probably stop to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a risky move as the user base on Google's operating system is even larger.
The truth is that Pokémon Go will stop working on some iPhones that are not upgradeable to iOS 11 and the action will be executed with a update that will be released on February 28, so users have two options: update the mobile or get a new one.
