Not only that, but devices running Android 5, iOS 10, and iOS 11 will also see support for Pokemon Go end.
Announcing the news in a blog post, Niantic said: “In an upcoming update to Pokemon GO in October, we will end support for Android 5, iOS 10, and iOS 11, as well as iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 devices. Only Trainers with devices running Android 5, iOS 10, or iOS 11, as well as Trainers with iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 devices, will be affected by this change. Trainers with devices or operating systems not specifically listed here will not be affected and don’t need to take any action.
“If you’re unsure whether your device falls in one of these categories, please check with your device manufacturer.
“Trainers using affected devices will no longer be able to access Pokemon GO, including any accumulated PokeCoins or collected items on their accounts, when the version 0.189 update goes live in mid-October. We encourage Trainers using any of the listed devices to consider upgrading them if they wish to continue playing Pokemon GO. Be sure to have your account info and password saved somewhere so you can log back in on a new device!
