Is it possible to run iOS 9 on my ancient iPad 1 if I jailbreak it?
Never owned one.... I'm assuming it's stuck back on some older iOS version like my first iPod touch lol.... In any case no, jailbreaking won't allow you to install any other firmware than the last signed version for that particular model. Curious though, what's it running? iOS 6xxx?
Thanks. Would you guys happen to know of an email app for gmail that still works on an iPad 1 (iOS 5.1)? (Gmail won't let me log in anymore and every app I checked in the App Store requires a newer iOS.)
If the app requires a newer IOS, install the app on your PC or MAC under the ITunes. Then, you go to the appstore on the phone and it will let you install a latest app which is supported for your IOS.
Did you try this?
Allowing less secure apps to access your account
I tried that but it was already set to "less secure". I didn't know about that function so thank you for mentioning it.
Their latest app requires iOS 7 and I am on iOS 5. I sent an email to the developers of the Safe Mail app to see if I can download an earlier version.
The stock Mail app works fine with a Gmail account on an iPad 1 running iOS 5.1.1.
Thank you but what is that app called? I'm asking because every mail app I've seen in the App Store requires a minimum of iOS 7. The basic Gmail app is iOS 7.1 or later.
You can't really do that unfortunately, but you can make it "look a like" and customise it to get similiar features and interface-gestures. It won't be a super smooth experience but that's what you can do
Mail. It's called Mail. It's not in the App Store. It's installed with iOS.
