    What is the latest version to work on a iPhone 4 ? (Not 4S)

    Does iOS 8.1 work ?
    If not - Is it worth upgrading to the latest iOS 7 version to work on iP 4 ?
    Or will it be slow ?


    Going to update my fathers device when I meet him, Think hes on 6.1-something

    iOS 7 is the latest that will work on the iPhone 4. Many people report that iOS 7 makes the iPhone 4 slow to the point of being unusable, so you may want to reconsider this.

    No not much.

    I advise to stay on iOS 6 for iPhone 4.

    It's better than 7.0, but still worse than 6.1 (as far as performance/stability goes). That said, there are security and other fixes in iOS 7 that aren't in iOS 6 for iPhone 4, so there's that to consider too.
