On 8 January, Apple has released the iOS 11.2.2 updated to iPhones, iPads and iPods. "After that date, Trainers using affected devices may no longer be able to access their Pokemon Go accounts from that device, or use their PokeCoins or other items in their Bags", the developer said. Niantic explained the move and why they are dropping support for these devices.
The news comes after Pokemon Go late last month was updated to version 0.87.5 for Android and 1.57.5 for iOS. If you haven't received the notice, you can open the device's Settings and go to "General" - "Software Update". To be fair, I doubt that there's a lot of people that are still playing on older devices.
"You know what? I'm done with this EX-Raid Pass System". This now includes some pretty prominent influencers, including Reversal. That also goes for a few devices that already weren't able to play, like the iPad 1st gen. He's one of the many hardcore players that have mysteriously been left out of the random invite system.
The new Ex-Raid invites are scheduled for January 16th and according to the Pokemon GO Hub, this new wave of passes appear to be targeting "mostly" first time raiders.
