I have an old ipad that can only run ios 9.3.5 and it had the dropbox app that worked fine until recently. I got the red message about updating to app, which it cannot do because of the old IOS. There is another post https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Installs-integrations/Previous-versions-of-DropBox-for-IPAD-2-runnin... on the forum about reinstating an older version of dropbox which I followed, but was never given the option to install the older version. This was despite deleting the cloud dropbox backup and restarting the ipad.
So my next option was to access the web from the ipad, here too I have hit a brick wall. When I go to dropdox I get this page:-
I can only seem to get to a login page by clicking on the Learn more option on the Cookies banner and then selecting some other links. I then get to this page:-
Entering my username and password, (that I successfully use on my Mac) gives me Error 405:
So I am unable to access my Dropbox basic account and continue to work on my files and those shared by others, in this ipad.
Help please, either to reinstate the older app, or access the web directly from this ipad.
EDIT: Also tried clearing the cache, using different browsers and using an ingocnito tab. Still no good.
Hi @geemacmcm, thanks for posting on the Community!
If you’re running the older version of iOS, then it wouldn’t be possible to install the new Dropbox mobile app, as you’ve discovered. It wouldn’t be possible to reinstate the older version of the app, unfortunately.
In relation to the Dropbox site, it would only work on the latest version of the browser in question. Since you’re running an older iOS version, most likely it isn’t able to update to the newest version of Chrome. Safari is linked to iOS, so it can’t be updated directly.
