iOS 12.5.7. and Anki Mobile 2.0.74 / 2.0.79

I have Anki Mobile on my iPhone 6 and iPad Mini 2.
Both have iOS 12.5.7

I have Anki Mobile 2.0.74 (iPad Mini 2) and 2.0.79 (iPhone 6) installed on them.

In the App Store I get the information that I need iOS 14.5 or newer.
But I could install the last compatible version.

If I press on Install the pop-up appears again.

Are these the last compatible versions?

Sometimes when issues occur, I have to delete the app an re-install it.
Will I be able to reinstall Anki Mobile once I delete the app on my devices?
I could try this out but I’m afraid that Anki Mobile will be gone forever then.


Installing the latest compatible version has been possible from the previous purchases panel for years, I am not aware of any change regarding this.

Deleting Anki and reinstalling seems to be a common approach to troubleshooting for users here on the forum, but it is hardly ever necessary. Creating regular iOS backups in case of device trouble will likely help you more.

2.0.75 bumped the minimum iOS to 12.3, and 2.0.84 to 13.4. So theoretically you should be able to use up to 2.0.83. The app store is run by Apple, so unfortunately I can’t offer any insight into why you wouldn’t have received an update past that. While I think you should be able to reinstall the app after removing it, I’m afraid it’s not something in my power to guarantee.


Thank you for your answer. I will try to contact Apple Support.
