In an update published on the official Pokemon GO website, Niantic confirmed that it would soon be ending support for Apple devices that are "not capable of upgrading to iOS 11". The company says the game update happening at the end of February will "push the application beyond the capabilities of the operating systems on such devices".

Bizarrely, Pokemon GO Hub also mentioned that they've received a lot of reports that players have been sent a raid pass although they still have an unused one for the January 9th EX-raid. Another 4% of iPhone users continued to use even older models as of a year ago. Support now starts with the iPhone 5S released back in 2013, while those affected will be able to easily move to other devices and log in with their account. If you have an iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, or newer, you'll still be good to go.

Apple today seeded those registered to beta test iOS 11 with the fourth build of iOS 11.2.5. The iPad 4th gen, iPad 3rd gen, iPad mini 1st gen, and iPad 2 (2011) will no longer be able to play the game after this update.
