TwinSpires Mobile iOS App Trouble Shooting

Do we have the right device information for you?

Our new app was officially approved by Apple and resides in the App store. The new app requires iOS 11 or higher. Check if you are on a device that is older and not compatible with iOS 11; or you have a compatible device, but you have not upgraded your operating system.

We are super excited about the new app and want you along for the ride, can we help?

Sometimes, just knowing where to get the right information is all it takes, we've assembled some links we hope can get you information you need.

My phone (or tablet) is listed, how do I update my device?

Apple has step-by-step instructions to update to the latest operating system
If you are still unsure what to do, we recommend contacting Apple support - start here

My phone (or tablet) is NOT on that list, what now?

With this upgrade, we are no longer able to update or make changes to the original app. iOS 11 is the minimum system requirement for our new app, but as Apple continues to release updates to the iOS, the minimum system requirement may also increase to iOS12

Our current plan is to keep the original app online for the time being, but there is a chance that won't be possible.

As a device with an unsupported operating system, you will not be able to see the TwinSpires app in the App store; Apple does not display incompatible apps.

If you are not able to upgrade your device to a newer model that is compatible with iOS 11, please try our mobile site. If you have not used in a while, you may be surprised at the changes we implemented to make the site more friendly.

Still have questions?

We want to help, and if we can, we will. Please contact our customer support team at, or by phone at 877-774-7371 between the hours of 9 a.m. and midnight eastern time.
