PPTP is not available to iOS 10 and Mac OS Sierra


Attention to all iPhone, iPad and Mac user! PPTP is not available with their recent OS update, the iOS10, and the macOS Sierra. The latest version of the iPhone/iPad/Mac operating system was released together with the iPhone 7 launch last September 7, 2016. The brand new Apple OS removes the support for point-to-point tunneling protocol (PPTP) connections, this means that VPN connection using PPTP will no longer work with devices and computers which are running under  iOS 10 and macOS Sierra.


Apple announces the new changes of their new system updates on their site, stating this:


“System administrators preparing for iOS 10 and macOS Sierra should stop using PPTP connections for VPN. Learn about alternatives you can use to protect your data.”


“If you’ve set up a PPTP VPN server, iOS 10 and macOS Sierra users won’t be able to connect to it. iOS 10 and macOS Sierra will remove PPTP connections from any VPN profile when a user upgrades their device.”


“Even though PPTP protocol is still available on iOS 9 and earlier or OS X El Capitan and earlier, we don’t recommend that you use it for secure, private communication.”


Lots of people, mostly students and organizations are expected to be affected by this update. Due to this reason, they are not recommending everyone to upgrade to the latest OS version of Apple OS. There are a huge number of internet users are now having a little trouble in connecting to a VPN.
