What versions of the iPhone and iPad are supported?

Supported versions

As of October 2021, the PBS Video app is supported on iOS 12.0 or later

How to check your version

To see what iOS your device is operating on, follow the steps below:

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad > General > About. 
  • You will see a number listed on the right of Version indicating your device's iOS. 
  • You can also tap Settings > General > Software Update to see if updates to your iOS are available. Please note that as Apple devices age, Apple becomes unable to provide your device with the latest iOS and your device will show no updates available.

How to access PBS without the app

For users with lower versions we regret to inform you that the app will not work on your device. Follow the steps below to workaround this issue.

  • Open a browser window on your device and type http://www.pbs.org/ in the address bar. 
  • Once you are on the PBS.org website you can do just about everything you can do with the app. You can sign in, create a Watchlist, view your TV schedule, and of course view many of the PBS shows you love.
