I have an older iPad that won’t update past iOS 9.3.5. This iPad currently exists only to use Pandora on our non Bluetooth speaker system.  .i would like the ability to down date to an earlier version of Pandora

I have loved and paid for Pandora for years but now find I can't use my ipod touch to listen to pandora due to the incompatibility of the operating system. I am looking and other sources for music...I would love to stay with pandora but since these older versions are no longer available to me, I have no choice.

I also have this issue with a 4th Generation iPod Touch. I don't understand why older versions aren't made available. I've been a paying Pandora subscriber for over 10 years. I feel that Pandora support should provide older versions for users with longtime subscriptions so they can re-install on their older devices.

I have been on the community site searching this question and it seems to be very popular. I have an older version iPad running an iOS 9.3.5. I made the mistake of wiping it clean to start over so it would run better, and lost my Pandora. I have a premium membership, and I would like to run Pandora on this device. Could you please release an older version that will run on this device at least for those of us who have a Pandora membership.Thank you very much.

I also have an older iPad that won’t update past iOS 9.3.5. I have multiple iPads that I use for various things. This older iPad is one that I leave in my house and use solely to listen to Pandora on a Bluetooth speaker. The app would crash periodically and it was not too much trouble to download it again. I would very much appreciate the compatible app version being put back in the apple store.

Log in and click on the heart at the top of this thread. It's insane that Pandora doesn't already do this, but they won't unless we show interest the proper way/use the proper channels... Just click the heart!!

I would prefer to stay with Pandora having used it for years but I do not feel as though i should be compelled to upgrade my electronics to accommodate an app.  Other streaming services seem to be able to function on the older operating system.

I hope that Pandora will decide to facilitate their loyal patrons but for now I am forced to utilize other services.

This actually the main reason I stopped using Pandora because it won't work on my old device. There are no more updates for my trusty iPod and to tell people to update to the newest IOS is just rude (there is a reason why people cannot update).

So for me it has no use to get a subscription if I cannot get the app to work. Sirius XM is not as picky, a tat more pricey but I don't have to throw a way a very useful and reliable device.

I have many older devices that are arranged at work or home or garage or boat/RV and used exclusively for Pandora music.  I NEED Pandora to run on all my older Apple and Blackberry devices!!

Please help!!!
