Pokemon go will soon no longer run on iphone 6 and iphone 5s. An update of the smartphone game for october should set support for android 5, ios 10 and ios 11, as developer niantic announced. In addition, the game iphone 6 and iphone 5s will not support long – apparently not under ios 12.
Pokemon go not ready for ios 14
As a reason, niantic introduced, you can connect the "optimize development process" and "recent operating systems and technologies (z. B. Ios 14) dedicate". Currently, the game still lacks ios 14, with beta users of the operating system, pokemon go stimulates immediately after the opening – for weeks. Apple’s operating system update is expected for september.
Trainer with one of the two iphone model series or the listed operating system versions can be used as of version 0.189, which should be published in mid-october, no longer access pokemon go. Trainers with other advised and newer operating systems are not affected by the support end and must have "no mails take", so the manufacturer continues. Whether an alter version of pokemon go on the affected iphones after a publication of the october update will remain unclear – remains unclear – in case of technical problems, no support is offered more for the alter hardware, emphasizes niantic.
Iphone 6 was reied again
Iphone 5s and iphone 6 came in 2013 and 2014 in the trade. The popular iphone 6 took apple originally in the fall of 2016 from the sale, but in 2017, but for certain regions as an entry-level model, it was also sold in retail in germany. Both iphone 5s and iphone 6 can be updated up to ios 12, ios 13 no longer. Under niantics twitter announcement, there are obvious comments from users, among other things in children and adolescents, the iphone model series seems to be widespread.
The step could also cooperate that apple’s augmented reality framework arkit requires a device with a9 chip (or later), this is only in the successor iphone 6s. For example, niantic wants to use more arkit functions that require newer ios versions and hardware. Pokemon go has already integrated arkit from a long time to put the pokemon more realistic in the real environment, they usually float on ages somewhere in the room. In addition, arkit be more efficient and less powerful, so the developers.
