Google has announced its intention to cease support for the operating system Android 2.3 and forget about its existence. This means that the devices based on it to the Google Play store and all related services will be closed and won’t open.
Of course, it may seem disrespectful to the owners of smartphones based on Android 2.3, but first OSes for six years, and second, among all the connected to Google Play devices mobile phones based on this OS at least 1.3 percent, so let these 1.3 percent already buy a new phone on a fresh OS. In addition, the vast majority of applications have not support such ancient OS and require a firmware higher than 4.0 ICS.
Update Google to version 10.0.0 released in early January 2017, and devices based on Android 2.3 to connect to them can not, as, however, and Android 3 Honeyсomb because the requirements are prescribed at least version 4.0.1. Old smartphones will no longer be able to work with any Google — Ads, Maps, Drive, Games and all the others will require more or less current version of the firmware. And given the fact that the producers of the means of communication are extremely reluctant to release an update even for devices two years ago, the chance to flash your six-year-old mobile phone to Android 4 and newer is equal to zero.
