Objective-C App on iOS simulator fails during authentication using an iOS 8 taget but works with iOS 10:
dyld: Symbol not found: _OBJC_CLASS_$_SFSafariViewController
I wasn't aware that iOS < 9 was not longer supported, but this appears to be the case as this class arrived in iOS 9. If true will adjust deployment target accordingly.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Wow, this is too bad. I have an app that still proudly runs on the first iPad with iOS5. It is still fully functional and works well. With V2 and especially this change, the entire dropbox implementation will be useless. At the very least I was thinking maybe I could update just the dropbox part, but I guess not.
You're correct, Dropbox iOS app only supports iOS 9, so yes, anyone not running iOS 9 will not be able to use Dropbox.
But it's important to consider that this is an increasingly diminishing fraction of users. Less than 3% of users are on iOS 8 and less than 2% are on all other versions of iOS according to Apple.
Thanks but this is pretty depressing. It has been such a reliable and great storage service for the older iPads. Really sorry to see it go.
To the application engineers of Dropbox. Apple is forcing people to throw away perfectly good phones and pollute our environment and cost people a lot of money all to maintain their profit level. Please make an iOS 8 compatible version of Dropbox so we can keep using our phones. Thank you
