As Apple prepares for the next update to iOS, users are noticing that older devices are being offered an alternative when trying to download apps that are not compatible with those devices. This is the first time Apple has allowed previous versions of apps to be downloaded. If an app was updated, users had to maintain copies of older apps if they ever needed to reinstall them and an updated app was added to the Apple App Store.
