Some Kobo eReaders, tablets, and Kobo apps are no longer manufactured or supported. This means that some Kobo products won't be able to download content or get updates.
To improve our eReaders, apps, and services, we'll need to discontinue support for our earlier devices and apps so that we can focus on making our current and future products better. Rest assured, no items in your Kobo library will be affected. You will continue to have access to all reading material you have purchased or downloaded from Rakuten Kobo.
You can download the free Kobo App available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, and continue reading with Kobo on a device you already own. Or, download the free Kobo Desktop App to read your eBooks on your PC or Mac desktop computer.
You can visit kobo.com and go to the 'Apps & eReaders' page to learn about the latest Kobo eReaders and apps.
