Thanks guys, my Tab S3 is running Android 9. I think it's incompatible because iplayer is insisting on updating but the play store says "no longer compatible with your device". I was forced to buy an Apply iPad Air because their support was so much better than Samsung UK. It's a big change and I'm not loving Apple but as far as I'm concerned back up is more important than devices. I was appalled at how bad the Samsung customer care is.
The option was to go for a lower end but newer Samsung tablet because I would have preferred to stick to Samsung but I spent hours on the their customer care online chat and they couldn't recommend a suitable tablet???? Honestly, I can't deal with a company who has no interest in their customers. Not that I think it will make a difference in their lives.....
That's the way it went I'm afraid
I'll continue to try and update on my S3 but at least I'm able to watch BBC on my iPad.
That is an excellent idea and I'll certainly give it a go. I'm also puzzled and agree there might be another reason for iPlayer refusing to update. Would love to find out and perhaps pass the info on for future reference.
Thanks for being super helpful
