    The only way I know of to get old versions of an app from the App Store is to sign in on a device that can only run that old version and nothing newer.

    3.9? Can't even remember if/when Facebook might have been on that version given that it's on version 48 now.

    The only versions Apple is signing on Facebook in that range is in the pic attached. 3.10 is the closest, it appears. I can downgrade to any of these versions, and that is only possible if your phone is jailbroken on iOS 9.0- 9.0.2, and the app "App Admin" is download and used.[​IMG]

    Edit: I downgraded to this version to see if my 64 bit 6s Plus system would work, but it crashes and gets stuck on log in screen. [​IMG]Version 5.0 seems to be the oldest version compatible to newer phones. As seen in pics, it's not formatted to fit IPS6+ screens.[​IMG]

    Out of curiosity, where are you able to find that version information and then download the different versions?

    To get this information and downgrade option, first you will need to be jailbroken. Then, in the Cydia store you can find a free app called "App Admin". This app allows you to downgrade any Apple App Store app that Apple still signs off on. App Admin also just got updated to block unwanted updates.[​IMG]
    I really like this jailbreak app as I always hated taking a chance on upgrading an Apple app just to have it work worse than the previous version.
