Sw APP won't work on older ipad

New Arrival

I travel lots and use an older IPAD that has iOS 9. SW updated the app and it says it requires iOS 10 or higher. Is there anything I can do so I can still use my iPad?

You can do almost everything the app does on the mobile web site, and that should work regardless of iOS version.

will you iPad not download to iOS 10 or 11? I have an iPad mini 2 which is a little old since there is an iPad mini 4 now but I can still get iOS 11. 


If you can't get IOS 10 I would use the full website on the iPad which I do from time to time if I am using travel funds and it works just fine
