Apple plans to shut down iCloud and other Apple services for older OS releases according to @StellaFudge.

iOS 11 – 11.2.6, macOS 10.13 – 10.13.3, watchOS 4 – 4.2.3 and tvOS 11 – 11.2.6 are expected to loose access to iCloud services later this year. No formal confirmation from Apple is yet issued though.




Consider reminding users to update their devices. Gather statistics on old OS usage percentage.

QA engineer:

Test app behavior when services are not available.


Consider notifying users to keep devices updated.
