I may have a partial workaround that at least salvages some capability to continue to use my old ipad for Spotify. Setting the wifi connection to use an HTTP proxy restored my ability to see playlists and stream music on my iPad with IOS 5.1.1 running Spotify 0.7.2.26.  Search function does not work - it looks like that piece of the Spotify client is unable to establish a connection. 

In this example a proxy from NordVPN worked. To use NordVPN proxy requires a subscription. There are others - over to you to decide which one you prefer and trust. 

 

If you have a suitable HTTP proxy that you can use go to:

Settings -> Wi-Fi -> and select the active connection. 

Set HTTP Proxy to manual and configure the settings for a suitable HTTP proxy.

That's fabulous. Worth a major try. Thank you!
Not to beat a dead horse or anything but the more I think about this the
angrier I get.
There are many millions of people on the planet who cannot afford any
kind of ios 10 device but might be able to obtain a used ios 5.
And I'll bet an iPad 1 they aren't worried about internet security.
Spotify is more or less reaffirming the upper classes shall remain that
way and the rest can eat sheet.
And not get to enjoy good music.
Just gives me goosebumps.

It actually really stinks.

No they just support only the 64 bit processor Apple devices now because 32 bit can be easily hacked these days.

To be honest you can save a ton of money and just go with a cheap android device and it will be way more up to date then any old apple device. Most stores sell them for as little as $25 dollars.

Miraculously my app started to connect again!

Try and see.

Not sure but I had a serious chat with Spotify reminding them to act responsable towards a sustainable society. More people can keep their old hardwear not being forced to buy new stuff just to be able to listen to music.
