Supported versions confusion

Hi everyone,

I’m a beginner in mobile development and want to build my first React Native application using expo-cli, I have read that Expo supports Android 5+ and iOS 10+.
This means that my app will not work on phones with Android < 5+ and with iOS < 10+?

Note: In the React Native documentation I have read that Supported target operating systems are >= Android 4.1 (API 16) and >= iOS 9.0 so I’m confused about the versions on which my app will work.

Thanks in advance for a reply!

Hey @flavia,

If you follow this link Standalone app on android 4.1, you can see that it is possible to develop with Expo and then eject it. As written there, if you want to develop for Android < 5+ and with iOS < 10+, it’s probably a lot easier to just use react-native without Expo.

Good luck!
