MoneyWiz does not require robust or newest hardware but due to certain features of the operating system we might be using, MoneyWiz might not run the same on all versions of your operating system. This article outlines the minimum version of operating system you need to have installed in order for MoneyWiz to run smoothly.
- Because we continuously release updates to MoneyWiz, we might be forced to drop support for an older operating system from time to time. It’s not a decision we make carelessly – it’s always preceded by a careful consideration of whether we really need to do this, how many users are using a particular OS, etc. Nevertheless, this does happen from time to time.
- We are unable to inform customers of this ahead of time personally so please frequently check this website if you’re using an older OS version on your device.
- If you don’t update neither MoneyWiz, nor your OS, MoneyWiz will potentially work forever but you leave yourself exposed to potential bugs or security issues. If you update one (MoneyWiz/OS) but not the other, something might break. Therefore we recommend that you keep your devices up to-date at all times, both in terms of MoneyWiz and OS version.
- For this reason, we cannot guarantee an older version of MoneyWiz working on newer OS.
