    Welcome to the forum! Sorry for the delay in responding.

    Short answer: no
    More complicated answer: yes
    It really depends on what make/model phone you have & the app you're trying to run. Sometimes you can reinstall an app you had backed up in say Titanium Backup, and use it on a newer device or newer OS version.
    Case in point the app "Tapatalk". For years users have hated the updates and newer versions of Tapatalk the developers of this app would release, and so we would often backup the old version (that we preferred), and continued using it on newer devices, and after major OS updates such as KitKat & Lollipop.
    This however is an exception to the rule. Typically this isn't always possible for many apps and/or OS updates. Again, it all depends upon the app in question and the make/model of your device.

    Good luck and let us know how you make out, and/or if we can be of more assistance.
