I just recently published my first iOS app to the App Store, but I want it to support devices with older iOS versions, and would like to confirm how to add that support before I do something that might mess things up.
On testing downloading from the App Store, I discovered that having left the iOS Deployment Target setting to the latest iOS version (currently 13.2), seems to mean that only users with the latest version of iOS on their devices are allowed to actually download the app.
- I have a version 1.0.1 targeting iOS 13.2 on the store.
I think what I need to do is:
Build another archive targeting iOS 12.0 with a higher version number (required to upload after the previous one) and post it to the store.
And if I also want to support iOS 11.0, add another archive built for that with a higher version number, and upload that too.
Then make sure they're all listed as available under App Store Connect -> my app -> Pricing and Availability -> Last-Compatible Version Settings.
Is that all I have to do? Is it going to mess something up that the older iOS targets will have higher version numbers of my App?
