    Hi there!

    I have some questions for those folks who own the iPhone 5 still with iOS 6!!!

    I currently own the iPhone 3GS with iOS 6.1.6.

    I can install any application with 'Last Compatible' version with no problem.

    Then I recently made up my mind to purchase the second hand iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.4, because I love the design of icons of classical iOS.

    Before I proceed to buy a new phone, I have few questions about it.

    1. I am just curious whether the iPhone 5 with iOS 6 still lets me install the 'Last Compatible' version of apps as iPhone 5 is still upgradable to iOS 8.

    2. If it is 'not' possible to install 'Last Compatible' version of apps on the iPhone 5 with iOS 6, is it possible to move the backup apps from iPhone 3GS to iPhone 5 with iOS 6 in my iTunes which are obviously the 'Last Compatible' version for iOS6???

    Thank you in advance!

    Also, the cool thing about compatable apps is that if they do not let you download them on your iOS 6 iPhones, you can download them through itunes and, use iCloud to get the most recent compatable version.
