Not everyone has an iPhone 5. Not everyone will have an iPhone 5S next week. Some folks may still have an iPhone 3G or an iPhone 3GS. Some users may have an older iPad or iPod touch. Luckily, Apple has decided to cater to those users by making it possible to download older versions of apps.

For instance, say you are using an older iPhone and haven’t been able to upgrade past iOS 5 because of compatibility. Now, rather than be told you can’t download a recently-updated app, it will inform you that the new app requires a new version of iOS, but it will tell you that “you can download the last compatible version.” Very useful for those who have an older model iOS device.
