I was surprise, when I notice that some APPs are no longer supported for iPod version 4.2.1.

I deleted some Apps like Skype or Angrybirds because i suppose that was a message mistake, and no I can no longer install them because my version is not supported.

This means that I must send to trash my loved iPod to buy another one.?? I think this is not nice at all.!!!




iPod touch, iOS 4.2

    Not if you have a backup of the old app's ... like in trashcan if you have synced the app's with iTunes and not emptied the trash ... or a TimeMachine backup. The problem is, if you still have the old app's then you can't update to the new versions for newer devices (yes, you can ... a second iTunes Mediathek).

    If you failed to keep a copy on your computer, then you are out of luck

    Sorry, was my mistake. Saw to late, that iTunes for Windows was meaned. At the end - no backup = no old apps.

    Tank´s people for the info´s.

    I just can not understand, how a so big company like Apple, work like this. I mean if you buy a version end of life, after few months, no APPs anymore. Should not keep the old AAP´s in a separate place for example, and update without loosing completely the old versions.??

    I think that is the logical way.

    Tank´s again for all.

    Was my mistake, but was done, and the Apple store should get a way to avoid that.

    Dear mac.ph I mean that was done the my mistake.

    I just wonder what will happen, if I bougth a product few weeks before tha launch of a new one. I will stay with a new for example iPod, but without the best apps as soon as they will be updated for the new product, that means 1 or 2 months later.?!? Not fun at all.

    It depends when and where you bought the device (maybe there is a iOS update - if it is a newer one). But I know what you mean, because I also have bought some years ago a iPod Touch 2nd generation ... and now there are no iOS and App updates available.
