The New iOS 14 Update Is Not Pokemon-Friendly

If you feel like following the latest tech trends, you have probably explored the new version of Apple’s operating system, iOS 14. If you are a Pokémon Go fan, however, you probably didn’t find it to your liking.
The new update conflicts with Niantic’s titular mobile app, which, on its own, wouldn’t be that big of a deal. All it takes is one good hotfix.

Niantic, however, has shown that they do not have any interest in fixing or updating the app at the moment. Their statement on Twitter said the company guarantees the performance of the app on iOS 13, but they are not looking at offering a solution for “Beta” versions of operating systems.

Adding salt to the injury, Niantic states their apps do not and will not support jailbroken devices. So, if you are looking for a nice stroll hunting for sweet Pokémon lurking around in tall AR grass—please be advised to stick to an official (supported) version of Android or iOS.

As for those of you who have already updated, well, you can either roll back to iOS 13, or you can wait until the new version is finally official and Niantic-supported. Yeah, the life of a future-oriented Pokémon hunter is rough.
