How do changes to BBC News app on iOS 8 affect me?

  • Published

From February 2018, new versions of the the BBC News app will only work on devices using iOS 9 and above.

Don't worry as you can still use your app, you just won't have access to the latest fixes and features unless you update you device to iOS 9 or above. The content on your News app will continue to be up-to-date.

Why are you stopping support for the app on iOS 8?

iOS 8 accounts for only a very small proportion of BBC News app user base. Support for iOS 8 is no longer sustainable for the app following the release of iOS 11 and the changes to the tools that mobile app developers now use.
