Niantic have confirmed that a new update will be needed for some Trainers to carry on playing Pokemon Go.
The development team have revealed that they will be ending support for Apple device owners using iOS 8.
Trainers who currently use devices with this operating system will no longer be able to access Pokemon Go after Monday, November 20.
Niantic are encouraging players still using iOS 8 to upgrade their operating systems to iOS 9 and above for uninterrupted access to Pokemon Go.
The development confirmed that this latest move is being down to streamline things at Niantic, although it will inevitably mean they will lose a small group of players.
“iOS 8 was initially released in 2014. In the time since the release, there have been some major improvements to the iOS operating systems,” a message from Niantic explains.
“By removing support for iOS 8, we are able to streamline our development process and focus resources on supporting newer operating systems and technologies.
“A vast majority of Apple users have migrated to iOS 9 and above. As players migrate from older operating system versions to newer ones, we periodically update our supported device requirements to focus on the devices our player base use.”
