Zoom video conferencing platform has declared that its upcoming release will require iOS devices to run at least iOS 13, unlike iOS 11 and 12 it currently supports. This means iPhones not upgradeable to iOS 13 will lose access to the Zoom mobile app and future updates as the company prioritizes latest environments.

Zoom Will Stop Working For These iPhones: Is Your iPhone Impacted?

Zoom Set to Drop iOS 11 and 12 Compatibility

Leading video communications platform Zoom has announced that its forthcoming app update will mandate users on Apple devices to have their operating system upgraded to at least iOS 13 for accessing uninterrupted Zoom services and features on iPhones and iPads.

This would block continued usage for those unable to transition their iOS versions from the now dated iOS 11 and 12 environments. Zoom considers maintaining updated infrastructure vital.

Compatibility Dilemma for Legacy Device Owners

Experts opine that while the move serves legitimate software upkeep needs as older platforms pose security risks and restrain innovation possibilities, it may nudge owners of outdated but still functional iPhones and iPads to prematurely invest in costlier upgrades, posing dilemmas.

As developers increasingly optimize products for latest iOS iterations only, consumers struggle keeping pace without sufficient replacement cycles for expensive devices. But outdated OS challenges remain.

Cites security and performance compulsions

Zoom says its difficult choice highlights the imperative for customers to keep devices and apps regularly refreshed in an era of rapid evolution. But affordability barriers for average users to stay cutting-edge persist on expensive hardware, causing exclusion risks.
