Hardware quick-fire questions
How do I find apps compatible with older iOS versions?
Apps on the App Store state the minimum version of iOS needed to run, but there’s no way for you to filter search results to show only those that work with a specific version. However, findoldapps.com will let you search back as far as iOS 3.1.3. Each result links back to the App Store, so it’s easy for you to install the desired app directly.
Is there an iPad joystick cabinet I can buy instead?
Yes! At least there used to be. Ion Audio doesn’t make the iCade anymore, but you can still find refurbished models easily on eBay for around £40. It uses Bluetooth to communicate with the iPad, and has eight buttons and a joystick. The Midway Arcade app gained iCade compatibility in 2012.
