Hi,
Can I install an apk that the dev said it's for android 11+? I asked him why doesn't it install on 10 he said because of size.

If it's possible please explain how.

    The dev must be an idiot: Whether an app only works on Android 11+ or not only depends on the APIs used.

    In general, a dev will declare a minSdkVersion in the build.gradle of his/her app.
    If the minSdkVersion is 30( API Level 30 = Android 11 ), you will failed to install the app on an Android 10 device.

    if the app is open source, you may be able to fork it, and try to modify parts of it to make it work on android 10. Usually devs don’t make it incompatible with a android version for no reason, so changing the requirement may break some/many/all features of the app.
