I recently posted a blog entry about upgrading your app, if you should support past versions of iOS or Android. So imagine my delight when I saw this post – Majority of Developers working on iOS7 Updates. A study shows that 52% of iOS developers plan on making their apps require iOS7 and drop support for prior version of iOS. I think this is great. The many new features that are being talked about in IOS7 show that these features are the ones that developers have been waiting for. Features like better multi-tasking and improved screen layout to address multiple screen sizes have all been a long time coming, and I expect that if iOS7 is adopted quickly by consumers, that number of apps that become iOS7 only will quickly go above 70%.
What do you think?
