How to install apps which require a newer version of iOS on a 1st gen. iPad? - Ask Different

I still have my first gen iPad lying around and was wondering can it be updated to iOS6 or 7. They did discontinue the support so I reckon it is not possible without jailbreaking. I have already jailbroken it and was wondering if I could somehow update it! Thanks in advance, guys! Aug 1, 0 18, 2. I doubt it. The 1st Generation iPad is slowwwww. Just for perspective; the 1st gen.

Even if you manage to manually install the software it probably won't even turn on without crashing. Granted its jailbroken but still. If you want some of the features of iOS 7 I recommend jailbreaking it. Almost everything will be unsupported on your iPad. You should just get a cheap Android tablet.

I thought you only got the message to download the last compatible version if you had previously purchased the app when it was the current version for the older iOS. This also works when you haven't purchased an app before. I donated an old iPad 1 after wiping it clean. Man, I posted a bounty but forgot to award it!

You will often be able to install the app, just not the latest version of it. See Chad's answer for details. Fiksdal it will not guarantee it will work. Because the underlying API's might have changed. Rob Yes, it will. The method in Chad's answer doesn't install the new, incompatible app.

It installs an older version, which is compatible. Of course, if an old enough version doesn't even exist, then it won't install at all, because there's nothing to install. Another thing that can happen is that the app needs to connect to an online service server from its creator, and that service may drop support for very old versions of the app. But it mostly works. Fiksdal your 2nd last line: If the developer takes the older service offline, you cannot use the app anymore. Rob Oh, ok, fair enough. Yes, absolutely. Some apps are like that. Haven't come across any yet, though, but I'm pretty sure there are some.

Can I upgrade my iPad from iOS 5 to iOS 7?

Martin Martin 1 6. I would reduce your answer to the actual answer part.

And ARC totally ruins backwards compatibility. I know because I program for iPhone. Very frustrating. It's probably hard to get the developer to support an old version. Downvoted, as this answer is purely subjective.
