Apple announced today that developers designing apps for iOS 2.x will no longer be supported on the App Store. Those that are building or submitting apps that target iOS 2.x might face removal from the App Store or problems during the submission process.
Apple asks devs to avoid targeting iOS 2.x and instead to build their apps with Xcode for iOS 3.x or later. Apple also urges devs in the announcement to take advantage of the iOS 4 Rediness Checklist as well as the number of new API’s included in the latest version of iOS.
With iOS 4 now available as a free update for almost all iDevices including iPhone 3GS, 3G, and the 3rd and 2nd generation iPod touch, its surprising to learn that there are still devs targeting iOS 2.x at all.
