Updating iphone 3g to 4

i Phone 3G owners can finally stop threatening to throw away their phones.Users with older i Phones can now download legacy versions of apps that no longer support their device.For example, the i Phone 3G only supports i OS 4.2.1, and i Phone 3GS users will not be able to download i OS 7 when it is officially launched on September 18th.

As you can see from the screenshot above, the App Store will now give you the option to install the "last compatible version" of an app.

So if you're stuck at i OS 4.2.1, but the app you want to install now requires i OS 4.3 to work, you can now download the 4.2.1 version of that app.

This is great news for people with jailbroken devices and older devices like the original i Phone.

It is also good to know that you can now hold onto your i Phone even longer than before, and can ignore future i OS updates if you choose too.

Also don't forget, this does not mean you will have access to every app in the App Store.
