I have a 5th gen iPod that I have used Pandora on since day one. Lately, I've started having issues with Pandora suddenlink stopping and having to be restarted and sometimes the iPod itself had to he restarted. I have deleted the app and reinstalled with no change. I uninstalled the app last night and went to reinstall and I get an error message saying Pandora Music is not compatible with this iPod. I don't understand this issue. Someone please help!

SEARCH HOW TO DOWNLOAD OLD VERSION OF IPHONE & IPAD FROM APP STORE -- MACWORLD UK.
READ: Open the App Store on your less-than-spritely iPad or iPhone. Find Purchased tab > My Purchases > Type "Pandora" in search. After some deliberation, the App Store will recognize that your device can't run the latest version and offer to install an older one. Consent to this by tapping Download.
Hope this helps.
I have good news. I'm in the exact same boat and I discovered there is a way to install the latest compatible app version.
I used this method and it worked perfectly for my iPhone 4S running iOS 9.3.6
Excerpt from that site:
Redownload apps and games from Apple
You can redownload apps in the App Store.
How to redownload apps on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
am a paid subscriber, have been for YEARS!
I would like to know why you discriminate against older Ipods ?
Have Ipod touch gen4, runs latest update available ios 6.1.6,
ALL Ipod was ever used for was a music player (itunes & pandora)
was running pandora one (unknown version)
started working erratically, (stopping etc)
looked up solution, was to delete & reinstall pandora
did that - now says incompatible with device.
researched with apple - 6.1.6 is the latest update can use.
researched with pandora in chat - no way to do.
Why is it that I cannot find an earlier version of app that is compatible?
Why is it that I cannot use a perfectly good device, just because it is old?
was working before, why do you choose to exclude me from using because I don't have the latest and greatest?
Am feeling like my paid subscription is in jeopardy because of this.
But then again, am sure that pandora doesn't care.
Hi there, @reegeemon. 👋

Spotify and the rest of the music apps are the same and will not install either, so I am stuck with an expensive paperweight I only use it for music running sheet music reader and pandora/ youtube for backing tracks.
The older version can be installed by connecting to your iCloud account and reinstalling the backup version.
If pandora is not interested in us using their app I guess we should find some other app that wants us as part of their community and will make a version that will work on old or new iPads and iPods
I’m currently setting up my old iPhone 6 to stream music for my mom who’s in hospice care. Even though she’s basically comatose, whenever there’s music on, she’ll start tapping her feet, wiggling her hands and bobbing her head to the beat.
I’ve updated the iOS software to 12.5 (the highest update it’s allowing), but am unable to download Pandora. It tells me that “This application requires iOS version 13.0 or later to download and use this application.”
I was able to download Spotify, but prefer Pandora. Looking for any help from the Pandora community.
Thanks - Scott

I have an older iPhone with iOS 12 that I want to use just for Pandora. Is there a way to get an older version of Pandora that will work with this phone and iOS? I am doing this already with another old iPhone with the old Pandora app that I just have not updated.
Hey, @PierreP. 👋
Thanks so much for posting about this. I moved you post over to this existing thread to keep the community space organized: iOS: Downloading Older Version of App
As you may know, the current version of Pandora for iOS requires iOS 13.
To confirm the iOS version you are running on your device, open your device's Settings, go to General, About, and Version.

I have an IPhone 6 that works perfectly. The pandora app now requires IOS 13, but I can only install IOS 12. I have been a user for 10 years. I switched to spotify because they allow me to use IOS 12, but loved Pandora. Won't be coming back.
