I created a new icloud account and started to configure it.
It had iOS 6 preinstalled in it. But current version of iOS is 8. Many apps like Facebook, Skype which we use daily supports only iOS 7 and above.
The App Store contained only latest apps and hence whenever I try to install, it throwed an error,
"This application requires iOS 7.0 or later" - Dismiss
I tried several times and asked few friends but nothing worked out. I found something here: http://support.apple.com/en-us/ht5919 but that too did not work. I went to my Purchased screen and found it empty. There was nowhere I was not able to find the option which provides a download. Some friends even suggested for jail breaking which I wasn't willing to.
Then I tried this which worked.
Just Follow the steps:
- I had a Windows 8.1 PC. I installed iTunes there and logedin using my newly created account. In that there is an App Store where I downloaded these apps.
- As soon as I download these apps using WinPC iTunes, I can see the apps are showing in my iPod Purchase Screen.
- The Purchase Screen is in the updates area of the App Store in iOS.
- Go there and download the app again, it will download and install. Now you can follow this link: http://support.apple.com/en-us/ht5919 Everything will come to place
