Yahoo is all set to discontinue support for Mail, Contacts on older Apple devices, according to a recent posting on the company's official Tumblr blog. Amotz Maimon, Chief Architect at Yahoo, said the following:

"In order to maintain focus on the security, speed and functionality of Yahoo Mail on the latest systems, we are no longer supporting Yahoo Mail on the built-in Mail app for devices prior to iOS 5 on June 15, 2015. If you use iOS 4 & earlier, you can continue to use Yahoo Mail on their Safari mobile browser at mail.yahoo.com."

Yahoo also said it is planning to shut maps.yahoo.com, GeoPlaney,Yahoo Pipes, as well as Yahoo TV along with Yahoo Autos. By the looks of it, the company is in the middle of quite a large-scale restructuring process.
