Question: Transferring Apps

When you transfer an app to an older device will it go to an older iOS? Like for example, an iPhone running a new version of the app that is not available for the older device gets transferred into the old device, will it go to an older version that was compatible or won’t work?

You don’t transfer apps. Your license allows you to use them on any devices you own or control and use your AppleID on. So on any device, you just open the App Store, go to your purchased list and download it, it is available for the version of iOS on that device.

It is entirely up to individual developers whether they continue to offer older versions or not.
