I pretence that my purchases will be in a clouded cover for a bit though what happens when a ultimate chronicle is released? Will we still be means to download a chronicle that runs upon my iPad, or am we out of luck?
Your amatory nephew,
Every time Auntie passes by her not asked iPad 1, it looks during her with unhappy eyes. It knows a days in a object have been limited.
Should we buy iPad 1 apps now? Yes. Heck yes. Heck approbation with a large bag of liniment as well as Werthers upon top. Your inscription isn’t authorised for iOS 6, so if we devise to accessorize — do it now. Buy all a iOS 5.x apps we can predict using, as well as get ready for a mass upgrade.
iOS users have been good adopters. Heck, if mental recall serves Auntie right, some-more people were illegally regulating iOS 6 beta releases than had commissioned a ultimate authorised chronicle of Android. (Auntie loves this statistic, so greatfully scold her kindly if it is fabricated.)
Back-supporting aged iOS firmware versions can be a outrageous duty for iOS developers. The cost-benefit fallout for a couple of outlier users paints a dour picture. So design some-more as well as some-more of your a a single preferred apps to pierce in to “only supports iOS 6 as well as later” territory. (And design your app ascent froth to benefit incomparable as well as incomparable numbers over time — Auntie wishes Apple would supplement a “don’t bug me for upgrades after iOS ” option.)
Will we be means to re-download a iPad 1 chronicle after developers recover ultimate ones? No. Will we be out of luck? Yes. Can we behind up a existent versions of a applications? Yes, they’re vital in your [home]/Music/iTunes/Mobile Applications folder; we can duplicate a necessary ones elsewhere in box we ascent a single by accident.
Buy now, ascent now, or only have a pierce to ultimate hardware. If we can pitch it, Auntie recommends hardware. There have been a little superb deals upon refurbished iPad 2s out there, as well as a ultimate iPad, that Auntie calls a 3 (so there), is only spiffy.
