On 8 January, Apple has released the iOS 11.2.2 updated to iPhones, iPads and iPods. No doubt, players who have invested real money into the game via microtransactions will be fairly vexed that they're being ditched for not having the latest iPhone or iPad. The change is slated to go into effect on February 28, so either get your Pokémon Go fill before then or beg your parents (or save up yourself) for a smartphone upgrade.
The older devices will be dropped to accommodate "improvements to Pokémon GO that push the application beyond the capabilities of the operating systems on such devices", Niantic concluded.
In other Pokemon GO news, more and more players are getting sick and exhausted of the EX Raid system.
Whilst no official announcement has been made on what happens when Groudon leaves the game, a change in the recent master file may indicate the imminent arrival of Kyogre as a new raid boss.
Pokemon GO was originally released in the summer of 2016 and saw millions of gamers leave their homes in search of Pokemon to capture. When will this option come up it's still a mystery, as there is no word about it in the beta. Way to kill my motivation on this game.
Users who are unable to update the game will lose out on access to the game and any in-app purchased items players have paid for over the years.
