My friend has the original iPad that runs iOS 5.1.1 and can't be updated any further. Very few apps these days are compatible with that version of iOS. The new version of VLC in the App Store requires iOS 7.
What I thought I'd do is get an old version of the
.ipa for VLC that's compatible with iOS 5.1.1. I have a computer with iTunes that I wonder if I can use to transfer it to the iPad.
- Are some old versions of VLC compatible with iOS 5.1.1? If yes, what's the latest VLC version that's compatible?
- Where can I get such
- Do I have to jailbreak the iPad in order to install such downloaded files, or can I do it without jailbreaking?
