Discontinued Support for iOS 4 and 5

By Andrew Schulert, VP, Quality 

Today we informed a group of our owners using our controller app on older versions of iOS to let them know that – in the near future – these devices would no longer work with their system. This includes the first generation iPad, iPhone 3G, and second and third generations of the iPod Touch.

We take your investment in Sonos very seriously and believe that your music experience at home should get better with time. But occasionally we have to make decisions that balance our need to innovate with our desire to maintain support for older devices – in this instance, those running iOS4 and iOS5.

It is our ambition to build for and support as many devices as possible for as long as we can. For reference, below is the current list of supported devices. Visit the Sonos Support page to download the app on another device, or update any of the following compatible controller devices:

  • iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad running iOS6 or higher
  • Android phone and tablets running Android 2.1 and higher
  • Desktop controllers: Mac running OS X 10.6.8 or greater, PC running Windows® XP SP3 or higher, Windows Vista™, Windows 7, Windows 8.
