    OnStar App/old iPad..No joy

    My wife was kind enough to hand down her first gen iPad to me after my sales man handed her the new one at delivery (man she is fast so happy wife happy life). Anyway the OnStar app worked fine on the old iPad until apple upgraded the ios which was not supported on the older apple devices. So now when I go to log on I get a message to upgrade my app. I go to download the new app and I get the error message that I need the new ios for it. I then get the option to download the last supportable app. Great I do that and go to log in and the cycle starts over again. Has anyone experienced this ring around the rosey and know a solution?

    BTW preying the new ipad out of my passengers hand to use the app has proven to not be a valid option.

    She has to sleep sometime...

    The roll-back to iOS 6 is tricky and bound to bring more problems with many other apps needing to roll-back to prior versions also.

    So, buying a new iPad is the recourse people seem to be taking recently.

    Blame it on the "planned obsolescence" way of life with Apple products.

    Apple does a better job of giving software updates than most. I don't think they plan obsolescence. Their hardware goes through advancements that their software can't always offer backward compatibility due to lack of hardware capabilities in older products.

    It's OnStar not Apple, my iPad downloads the previous version of the app. I contacted OnStar and they stopped supporting the older apple IOS apps. My BlackBerry app still works and that’s what I use to access Remote link most often.
