iOS 8 iPhone 4, How Do I Install?


iOS 8 released for iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPad Air, 4, 3, 2 and iPod Touch 5 Gen. We know that millions iPhone owners installed new iOS 8 for free. How do we know and what does it mean? It's mean, that iOS 8 doesn't work on iPhone 4. If you find download links like iOS 8 ipsw for iPhone 4, you must know - it's scam or virus, because Apple unsupported iPhone 4 in iOS 8. Yes. It's true. If you have this smartphone's model, you can't install new iOS.

How Do I install iOS 8 iPhone 4?

Nothing. You can't. Don't forget, iOS 7 is very cool iOS for iPhone 4. iPhone 4 works perfect on iOS 7!!! If you have iPhone 4S - you can download and install last version from here

That's fucking bullshit

Apple is a bunch of assholes. Maybe if we could afford your expensive bullshit phones, but sadly I can't and there is no consideration.

September 17, 2014 at 7:26 PM: KTtheBosa said...

Messed up. I guess it's time to upgrade because I've had the 4 since the day it came out and I swear it gets slower every time Apple releases a new phone.

Bullshit....Apple you really need to move on , so many restrictions for users will kill you !

You can get a 5C for free...

September 18, 2014 at 8:43 AM: Matt Wellumson said...

It's actually works on the Android side. Phones are dropped from support much faster. At least Apple supports your device for 1-2 more years than Android devices released the same year.

Damn you Apple! Stuupidity! Just because you're producing new models so fast???? Now you won't mind about the older models... Screw you! Selfish! Daaaaarn.

September 19, 2014 at 3:00 AM: Ricky Young said...

Yes, but when Android stops giving you updates for your Android Phone/Tablet, you can still get the older version of apps for said tablet/phone unlike apple which'll just sit there telling you you need the latest version of ios on a phone/tablet that can't get it lol

The problem is that the hardware in the iPhone 4 wasn't designed to work with such advanced software it would just crash and be extremely slow with iOS 8

September 20, 2014 at 6:48 AM: animallover14 said...

You guys have to remember that the iPhone 4 is pretty old The problem is that the hardware in the iPhone 4 wasn't designed to work with such advanced software it would just crash and be extremely slow with iOS 8

September 21, 2014 at 7:21 AM: Ze Vaz Pinto said...

Ok, Ok, no IOS8 in the iPhone 4! We can live with this ...
But, what about iCloud sincronization of different devices, and accessing with iPhone 4 (IOS7) and iPad mini (IOS8), will it be compatible?

September 21, 2014 at 3:19 PM: MLR Parodyspace said...

*The problem is that Apple knows that a lot less people would be buying their new models if they didn't take away your ability to upgrade software after 2-3 years of having an iPhone (in this case, iPhone 4). Reasoning: Anyone with half a god damn brain could easily figure out that they have no need to buy a new model when the only thing they have changed in the past 2-3 years is the size of the phone. Without taking away software upgrades for new phones, who would upgrade just to get an extra panel! The situation would not even be that bad if their phones weren't ridiculously overpriced. Fucking criminals.

Logan-Seth: HOW do you get a 5C for free ?

Anonymous said...

Guys the effort to get IOS on iphone 4 is futile. At least for an iPhone, IOS 8 was written for a multi CPU processor, this is why the minimal supported hardware is the 4s, it has 2 cores. If you port it to 1 CPU system it will be unbearably slow and unresponsive, not something you want for a phone.

It's the manufacturers fault nit to update their phones . Even the nexus 4 got a lollipop update when the latest is nexus 6!

There is still tweaks in Cydia to have iOS 8 functions.

Because so many business applications, such as Hertz and American Airlines (I travel extensively) supports only iOs8.

Apple claims it's because of hardware limitations but, when I jailbroke my iPhone 4 I installed iOS features.

Dummy, if you want iOS7.1.2, just update- like said in the article, you can't get iOS8. iOS7.1.2 is a bit laggy tho, so jailbreak your iPhone 4 and go get iOS6

June 2, 2016 at 9:39 PM: nedjmo top said...

I think that the iphone 4 can work with ios8 if we see the iphone 4 work so well with 7.1.2 I know that he littel slow but apple say that he unsuported because simply she want to forced there coustemers to bay the new iPhone's that's not good for company like Apple she play with us

This is Why you cant update ios8 in iphone 4 because iOS 8 requires a dual-core processor and the iPhone 4 has a single-core one but that doesn't mean you can't download app like youtube skype or whatever . just download jailbreak free and you can download all apps you want :D cheers

I am an IPhone 6s user and NOT a brainless idiot bud. I am also a Android user. BOTH platforms do what they do better than the other. I can not do WiFi spectrum analysis with my IPhone but I can with my Note 3. I can't run my preSonus VSL to control my mixer with my Note 3 but I can with my iPhone. My IPad is much better than my Galaxy tablet. I went to IPhone from the Note 3 because I grew tired of my phone locking up and having to pull the battery to restart because it was not responsive. Side note. My iPhone.interfaces better with my car's Bluetooth... But my note did sms in the car hands free but my IPhone won't. Neither platform is better than the other at everything. It's about preferences not intelligence and to suggest otherwise is just plain bias based in ignorance

Do you try to run with Pokemon Go on a GameBoy Classic? If that work - I'll never ever buy an Apple device again!
... and remember - it's an smartPHONE not a smart GameStation!
