The Galaxy Nexus was the first phone with Ice Cream Sandwich.

  • Google has confirmed that it’s ending support for Play Store Services on Ice Cream Sandwich.
  • The change means app developers need to target Android 4.1 as the oldest supported version of Android.
  • Consumers will be unable to see or download an app that solely targets Android 4.1 and up.

Ice Cream Sandwich was one of the most important Android updates in the platform’s history, but it’s long past its sell-by date. Now, Google has confirmed that it is discontinuing Play Services updates for API levels 14 and 15 (corresponding with Ice Cream Sandwich).
