I wonder if you could teach me how to install older version of some
application through apple store for which apple store already carries
newer version of application. What do I do on my iOS device (iPhone or
iPad) to choose different version of application than the one that pops up
in the search of app store.

I don't care which application you choose as example, I just would like to
follow your step by step instruction. Once I am able to see one
(whichever) application for which I can choose one of two different
versions, I will happily admit that my statement was wrong. And I will
learn something. But so far I haven't seen the way to install older
version of some application (the version that was released when older
version on iOS was actively supported). But, of course, I did check all
applications that are in apple store.
