How to install iOS 13 on iPhone 6 OR how to use TestFlight on iOS 12.4.9

I really need to install TestFlight on my device which is an iPhone 6, but the app requires iOS 13 or later!
Is there any possible way to get ride of this problem? I mean any possibility other than buying a new iPhone🤪

  • Same here:/

  • I am iphone6 user. It is really frustrating that I cannot upgrade to iOS13. Many apps including Amazon have stopped app on iOS<13. it is forcing customers to purchase new phone which is not good.

  • Need an iOS 13 upgrade to install banking apps and many applications 😔😔😔


Same here, i really need to install testflight on iOS 12.4.9 to cater for this device and that's the only device i had right now
  • Man even google drive needs iOS 13 now I need a new iphone I guess

Same here :/
Same here @apple please help!
How can I do testing on older devices that a lot of my customers use? Feeling like the rug was pulled out from under me.

when did this happen? We used to not have issues with this. @apple any insight? We have a lot of beta testers asking about IOS 12.4
From the TestFlight docs:

iOS apps: iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8 or later. App Clips require iOS 14 or later. iMessage apps and sticker packs require iOS 10 or later.

It lists the app as still compatible with iOS 8+, so hopefully this is an unintentional change?

It looks like version 2.7.0 (Aug 17, 2020) was the last version that still had the proper compatibility list.

The latest version 3.0.0 (Nov 11, 2020) is the version that has iOS 13.0 as the minimum iOS version in the compatibility list on
This is a real blocker to app development & testing, please help
Same here. I need to test my app against iOS 11-14.
Same here ;
may it be possible to install v2.7.0 ?

thanks for help
It's really frustrating can not test my apps on Testflight on iOS < 13
I'm running into the same issue - I have users with an older iPad Air which can't update to iOS 13 meaning they can't beta test our app, but our live production version only requires iOS 11. Is this change really done on purpose? There's got to be some workaround for our users with older devices.
Same here!
same here with ios 12.5
same here. we have app users who're using iPhone 6/6S who can't update to iOS 13, yet we're unable to test the app on their devices. very inconvenient.
Same here. @Apple, fix it, please!
