Nintendo Switch Online mobile app dropping support for iOS versions 13 and earlier later this summer
It might be time to upgrade your iPhones
Over on Twitter, Nintendo have announced via their customer support page that support for the Nintendo Switch Online app on iOS versions 13 and earlier will be dropped later this summer. Below are the tweet and a rough translation:
We plan to update the “Nintendo Switch Online” application for iOS around the summer of 2022. This update will change the operating environment to “iOS version 14.0 or later”.
Please note that the app will not be available on devices with “iOS version 13 or earlier”.
It’s unclear why exactly this is, and no equivalent restrictions are announced for Android as of the writing of this article. We’ll keep you updated. For now, if you’re an iPhone user who’s been holding on to an old phone, it may be time to think about upgrading to a new device.
