We have an iPhone 4 that we love. It is running iOS 7.  But there are some apps that you cannot download to iOS7.  If you try to download them from the App store you get this message:

too old

To get around this, you need an older version of the app. But Apple don’t give you the option of installing older versions. To get around this and find an older version, you firstly need to download the newer version of App into iTunes on your computer.

Then when you go to your iPhone and find the app in the App Store, you will get the option to download the older version:

older app can install

SUMMARY: You cannot download older versions of Apps directly to your iPhone, but if you download a newer version to iTunes first, then you can access an older version from your iPhone.

NOTE: You need iTunes 12.6 to access the App store to do this. It won’t work in iTunes 12.7.

See this article for how to downgrade to iTunes 12.6.

I keep one laptop with 12.6 for this purpose. The rest are running iTunes 12.7.

I just went to sync my iPhone and I was given this message. This ‘lack of space’ is not a lack of space in your computer, the ‘lack of space’ is on the iPhone. This is somewhat of a bug. I think it is because iTunes is wanting to do some updates to the iPhone and there’s not enough room on the iPhone for this to happen. Whatever the cause, the solution is quite easy. Just uninstall some stuff from your iPhone (e.g. movies, music or photos), sync it, then put the stuff back on. Here’s how.

movie

iTunes has copy protection on their movies called HDCP which will not allow you to play iTunes rentals or purchases on some older data projectors.   Thankfully there is a simple solution. You just need to watch an SD version  of the movie and it does not have the HDCP protection.  This is not mentioned on Apple’s support webpage but I was able to find out about it when I rang Apple iTunes support.  Read on for how to do this step-by-step.

calendar

I have been keeping an eye on three iOS apps that Google have been playing with over the last few years,  and they have all come to age at the same time.  I’m not sure if the timing is coincidence or some kind of subversive move by Google but Google have nailed these three wonderful iOS apps all in the last few months: Calendar, Inbox, and Google Play.
