2 MyFRITZ!App can no longer be used
If FRITZ!OS 6.10 or later is not available for your FRITZ!Box model, then you can no longer use MyFRITZ!App. For FRITZ!Box models whose development has been discontinued, there will be no further FRITZ!OS update available that would allow you to use MyFRITZ!App in iOS 8.4.1 or later with them.
