  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 6

  • iPhone 5c
  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 4s
  • iPhone 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2

  • iPod touch 6th generation

If your Apple device is even older than the ones mentioned here, you will not be able to use ITVX either.

Fortunately, you will not lose access immediately, as ITV told the team at Cordbusters that support for these ageing devices would cease from the end of August 2023.
