How to Download and Install Older Version iOS Apps

iOS 8 comes with many improvements and plenty of new features such as Continuity, Apple Pay and SMS Relay. Sadly, many of these features will not work on older Apple devices, like the iPhone 4, due to limitations. Worse still, many apps now will require at least iOS 7 to run smoothly. Trying to install an app will probably prompt a notification like this:

9gag Install

However, that doesn’t mean you cannot get a compatible version of the app installed. Here’s how to do it. First of all, you will need to login to the App Store through iTunes in Mac. Search for the app you would like to install. In this case, I am trying to install the 9Gag app.

Once the app is installed, the app will be added to your Purchased history but it won’t turn up on your iPhone if you don’t have it connected to your Macbook (which is fine because keep in mind that although the app has been "installed", it needs iOS 7 to run and thus can’t function on your iPhone 4).

Now, to get the latest compatible version of the app on your phone.

On your iPhone, launch the App Store and go to the Purchased page via the Updates tab. Try installing the app. Your device will notify you that the current version of the app requires iOS 7 or later. Then, it will offer you the option to install a previous version that is compatible with the iPhone you are holding.

Here’s what you will see:

iPhone install previous version dialog

At this point, tap Download to proceed.

app installed successfully

And you should now have the compatible version of the app installed and functioning.

app is working

You can try installing other apps this way too but note that this only works with apps that have been around since iOS 6. Only then would there be a version built for iOS 6 aka the "compatible version" you can fall back on.

Avid is making a free, but limited version of Pro Tools

Avid’s Pro Tools software is not cheap, something the company seems to have realized with a new, completely free version of its digital audio studio with a more limited feature set. The new version is called Pro Tools First, and when it ships sometime in the next couple of months, it will give musicians a way to use Avid’s software without subscribing to any services or having to buy any hardware. It’s a different approach from what Avid was doing with Pro Tools Express, a similarly feature-limited version of its software that was bundled with its Mbox hardware.

This trailer turns ‘Wall-E’ into an animated version of ‘Interstellar’

Wall-E is one of Pixar’s finest films, but what if that adorable little robot was just a bit more… epic? A teenaged filmmaker named Bobby Burns has decided to do just that by giving the film the Christopher Nolan treatment. The trailer swaps Wall-E‘s heart-warming tone for that of Nolan’s upcoming space opera, Interstellar. That means the fate of mankind rests in the hands (claws?) of the endearing Wall-E instead of a grizzled astronaut played by Matthew McConaughey. In all seriousness, though, the trailer speaks volumes to the power of editing and sound. With some carefully-selected scenes from the film and a little Hans Zimmer blasting in the background, this trailer is a pretty good imitation of Christopher Nolan’s style.

Windows 10 is the official name for Microsoft’s next version of Windows

Microsoft is officially unveiling the name for the next release of Windows today: Windows 10. While the software maker had referred to Windows 10 as codename Windows Threshold internally, today’s official naming puts any rumors of Windows, Windows TH, Windows X, Windows One, and even Windows 9 to bed. It’s simply Windows 10, marking a jump from the mixed reception of Windows 8.

Described as Microsoft’s “most comprehensive platform ever,” Windows 10 will offer a tailored experience for all hardware across a single platform family. “Windows 10 will deliver the right experience on the right device at the right time,” said Microsoft’s Terry Myerson. “Windows 10 will run on the broadest types of devices ever.” You can expect a unique user…
