On December 19, 2016, Clash of Clans released an update called “Clashmas and Events” which featured new upgrade levels and changes to balancing as well as other upgrades. We’re a few weeks into January now and there hasn’t been an announcement regarding future updates.
Although there hasn’t been news about future updates, it was announced that Clash of Clans will no longer support devices lower than iOS 7. The announcement was made on January 20 and the change will take effect with the latest update of the game. The reason given for the end of support was “technical reasons” that were beyond their control.
So those who still want to play Clash of Clans will need to update their iOS to version 7 or higher. This means that the iPhone 3G S, the iPod Touch 3rd and 4th generation, and the iPad 1st generation can no longer play the game as these devices can’t be upgraded to iOS 7 or higher. The following devices, however, despite being shipped with iOS 7 or lower can be upgraded:
- iPad 2, 3 and 4
- iPad Mini 1st generation
- iPhone 4, 4S and 5
- iPod Touch 5th generation
Other than the end of support announcement, nothing else has been confirmed for the 2017 updates. Then again, Supercell is generous with their community in that they accept suggestions for future enhancements. Not everything will be implemented but at least they can get an idea of what their user base wants. Among the requests that users want are mini games or side quests, single player challenges and Clan War Tournaments – just to name a few.
The last big Clash of Clans update was made in December but another update is coming but not much is known about it just yet.
