The creator of Pokémon Go has revealed it will no longer support Apple devices that do not run on the iPhone maker's latest operating system.

From February onwards, owners of an iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C will be unable to play the popular virtual reality game.

The move comes as Niantic says as the game continues to improve older versions of Apple's operating system will not allow the game to move forward, citing that iOS 11 enables the game to go "beyond the capabilities of the operating system on such devices."

The change is set to take place on 28 February and will also deny users access to their account and using their PokeCoins, as well as other items in the their bags. To prevent this from happening, Pokémon Go fans will need to upgrade to an iOS 11 device.

The Apple devices affected include the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPad 4th Gen, iPad 3rd Gen, iPad mini, and iPad 2.
