Developers are sometimes adding to their apps firmware limitations disallowing users to download the app when running an older iOS even when it should work anyway. LowerInstall tweak can install unsupported apps on your current firmware version.

Add LowerInstall Repo to your package manager:

What is LowerInstall?

LowerInstall is a free jailbreak tweak allowing you to install apps on not supported iOS versions. The tweak can change your current iOS version to any other making it possible to bypass the minimum iOS version requirements disallowing you to download an app.

Once installed, the LowerInstall tweak adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app from where you can configure all options to your liking such as changing the iOS version and the device type. There is also an option to reset all settings to default system values.

LowerInstall tweak was created by JulioVern the developer behind Spotilife, CrackTool4, and CyDown. The tweak works on iOS 8 – iOS 14 running a jailbreak. It will allow you to download apps without the need to upgrade the iOS version. It will work on App Store and with installd.

Configure Options From Settings. Use this tweak to spoof iOS version and device type. When you see a message like “This application requires iOS 10.0 or later. You must update to iOS 10.0 in order to download and use this application.” use LowerInstall to bypass this limitation.

This jailbreak tweak fools the App Store into believing that your device is running that firmware instead of your actual older firmware. Remember to restart your iPhone and re-jailbreak to make LowerInstall work on the device. Respring will not affect the system settings.

Note that some apps are using some features available in newer iOS releases. Therefore some features may not work on current firmware and the app itself can crash.

Alternatively, you can try AppStore++ tweak. It adds to the official App Store app an option to downgrade and upgrade any installed app or game. What's more, this tweak can block unwanted updates forced by App Store. AppStore++ can also run without jailbreak on iOS 15.
