4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 11.4.1 & 8 Reasons You Should

Install iOS 11.4.1 to Keep App Support

Install iOS 11.4.1 to Keep App Support

Developers of popular applications are starting to kill support for older versions of iOS.

Pokemon GO developer Niantic says the app now requires an iPhone or iPad capable of running iOS 11 to operate. If you want to get the latest updates and features you'll need to upgrade your operating system or your device. 

This includes the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. It also includes the iPad (4th generation), iPad (3rd generation), iPad mini (1st generation), and the iPad 2.

Twitter recently dropped support for older devices running iOS 9. Starting with the next update iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users will need to be running iOS 10, or higher, in order to get the latest changes. If you use the official Twitter app, this is a good reason to finally move your device from iOS 9 to iOS 11.

In January, Google pushed an update to Chrome for iOS that requires iOS 10 or higher to operate.

In December, 2017 Asana pushed a brand new update that effectively kills support for iOS 9. The company is encouraging users to update to the latest iOS software in order to run the app:

"We’re saying so long, farewell to supporting iOS 9. So you should say hi, hello to iOS 10 or higher so you can keep using Asana. And if you're using iOS 11, you can now drag and drop more file formats on iPad. Adieu, adieu... to you..."

If you use Asana, you're currently using a device that runs iOS 9, you'll need to update to iOS 11.4.1 in order to use it.

Slack says its killed support for iOS 9. This means the current build is the last update for devices like the iPhone 4s. Unfortunately, the iPhone 4s isn't upgradeable to iOS 10 or iOS 11.

Slack and Asana aren't the only companies killing support for older iOS software.

Last year, Whole Foods killed support for iOS 9 and below. If you want to use the Whole Foods app, you must be using iOS 10.0 or above.

If any of your devices, primary or secondary, are sitting on iOS 9 or below, this is a pretty good excuse to upgrade to the latest version of iOS.

      DO NOT install ios 11! It is a giant step for Apple but a HUGE step back for phone users.
      The most annoying thing is that you no longer can check your voicemail directly you have to CALL AND LOG IN TO iToons. (Can you spell ads.)

      The whole ios 11 system is a giant money grab by Apple. Much as I resent Google’s android I may have to go back to it.
      What we really need is an alternative provider (available in the rest of the world but not here). This is no longer “the land of the free.”

        The comment is incoherent. What does the reader’s dislike of some feature of an operating system have to do with the degree of political freedom in the country?

      (double tapping the home button to bring down the top portion of the screen so it’s easily accessible with one hand) I thought this handy function was to show what apps. I have open, and to close if I like. At least that’s what it does on my iPhone 5s running iOS 10.3.3. What are you talking about?

    You actually MUST wait if you’re out of your country.
    I travelled from the US to Ireland and got an update that I wasn’t supposed to get because they do everything by location! Thank goodness it wasn’t bad, but be careful, you can fall into that trap! Maybe because Jony Ive is from the U.K., they get updates first! All I know is I got 10.3.2 before anyone else!!! :)

    Siri is so irritating. The translation feature has a funny example–exactly why this kind of translating often gets it wrong. “Where is the bathroom?” is literally translated. The place someone would point out for you would have nothing to do with a toilet. It would be a place to take a bath.

    Apple is more concerned about hiding off shore profits than making good products anymore. Sad.

    Ever since iOS 11 and it’s later iterations, my iPad Pro 12.9” turned to a useless piece of crap. So useless that I had to return it. They gave me a replacement which is also doesn’t work. It’s ok if you don’t need the touch screen facility (which I do). That aspect of it doesn’t work. The screen spends 50% of the time utterly unresponsive to touch with either my fingers of the Apple Pencil. Basically I have a slate and a stick which cost me €1000 and €100 respectively. I’m really unhappy. If iOS 11.4 doesn’t fix absolutely everything, I don’t even want another replacement. I was an an early adopter of iPad and have them scattered about the house. All of my equipment is Apple (MacBook Pro, iPhones, iPads), but my iPad Pros since iOS 11 are donkeys. Really frustrating.

    There is always only one reader at a time. The author should not refer to “some of you” or “most of you” but to “some users” or “most users.” “If your situation is x, then… If it is y, then…” covers the circumstances of different readers without awkward wording.

    I don’t care about any of the upgrade features for my iPad. Not worried about security or anything else. When will they force us to upgrade with and “Or else…” connected?? My feeling: IF IT AIN’T BROKE….

    In over 30 years of using Macs I’ve never had any “breech” or anything else go wrong from hackers, etc. Too much fear based nonsense about “security” when in reality the alphabet agencies have back doors on most everything :-(

    I have been having a terrible time with my iphone7 since the upgrade.
    The screen has become so sensitive that the phone now plays music, calls people, hangs up on people, and performs other “unwanted” actions with the slightest accidental touch of the screen. Anyone else having this problem?
