We wanted to make you aware of upcoming changes for older operating systems running the Zwift game app.
Starting December 2021, we will begin deprecating certain operating systems based on industry standard minimums. The following operating systems will be impacted:
- Windows 7 and 8.
- macOSX 10.11 and older.
- iOS 11 and older.
- Android 6 and older.
MacOS, iOS, and Android deprecation will happen with the December 2021 game release version 1.20.
Win7 & Win8 deprecation to follow in January 2022 with game version 1.21.
Affected Zwifters currently using these operating systems will begin to see messaging in-game, and should also receive notification via email.
The Zwift game app will no longer function on deprecated operating systems.
Many existing devices running older operating systems can upgrade their OS without needing to replace the device. Upgrading your OS will ensure your device is best equipped to run Zwift’s 3D game graphics.
If your existing device is unable to upgrade the OS, Zwift supports a variety of devices and operating systems, it’s likely another device you already own will be able to run Zwift as well. More information on supported devices can be found here.
Additionally, for Apple Watch owners: we are aware that this experience needs upgrades and we are working on a longer term vision for support. In the meantime, the Zwift Game and Companion apps will be removed from the Watch App Store.This means:
- New users will not be able to install the Zwift Game or Companion apps
- Legacy users will be able to use the watch apps, but will receive no updates to either app
