I'm afraid the minimum requirements are IOS8, so there is no solution - you can use the website or any third party app which integrates with Dropbox which doesn't require IOS8 however.

Hi there,

You can still download the Dropbox for iOS app on older iOS versions. Version 4.2.2 is available for iOS 7, and version 2.3.2 is available for iOS 6 and lower in the App Store.

Search for Dropbox in the App Store on an iOS 6/7 device and tap Download. The App Store will start the download and then prompt "Download an older version of this app? The current version requires iOS 8/9 or later, but you can download the last compatible version." The options will be to either "Cancel" or "Download."

If you have never previously installed Dropbox using this Apple ID, the App Store may not prompt you to download the older version (4.2.2 for iOS 7, 2.3.2 for iOS 6). Instead, you will only see an error "This application requires iOS 8/9 or later. You must update to iOS 8/9 in order to download and use this application." There are two workarounds in this case:

- If you have another iOS 8/9 device, you can install Dropbox on that device. Once installed, you can then go to the App Store on your iOS 6/7 device to install and will then be prompted to download the older version.

- You can use iTunes on a computer to download Dropbox. This will download the incompatible iOS 8/9 version onto your device. Once that is complete, you can go onto the App Store on your mobile device and re-download Dropbox, and this time will be prompted for the older version (because now the app has been previously installed for that Apple ID account).

Hope this helps!

Thank you very much Bruce. Your solution has been perfect. And what it is better, the way you explain for installing the appropriate (old) version of Dropbox for IOS 7 can be applied for any other application having the same problem (at least it has worked with WPS (office app) and Adobe Reader).
