It began about a year ago. About 90% of my old games are no longer in the AppStore.

OK, well, It continues..... then!

Yeah they've been saying it's coming for a while, but now, shit is actually breaking. Which is nothing new when there's an iOS release, thinking about it, but dropping all 32-bit apps is kind of a big deal now that it's "real".

Fact : Warblade-HD / Deluxe Galaga is no more.
Can't be updated, since Edgar passed away a year or so ago.

I know we have to move forward, but what is their reasoning for dropping 32bit support?

Going to be a lot of unhappy people out there who doesn't know a bit from a Bob...

I can't see the logic in removing legacy support for 32bit either. Fair do's, if they don't accept 32bit apps any more, but just breaking stuff for shits and giggles?? Cannot fathom it.

Apple being Apple and forcing upgrades as per usual.
I’m dreading updating Mum's iPad Air 1, tomorrow.. Knowing "AppleWays" it'll probably run shit slow, and expect me to buy an updated model...
... that happened with the iPad 3... :/

I only have an iPad2 and it already runs like Stephen Hawking with a low battery. Probly time to consign it to the scrap heap. It won't get replaced tho.

Part of the norm innit with them, they have their setup sussed for maximum profit... Before I had an iPhone, I used to keenly watch what they were up to with new releases... Now, I dont particularly care about the iPhone or iPad, I think it's had it "evolution" run that did invoke "That's canny", but now, well to me anyway, the iPhone is just a phone, and the iPad, it just a tablet... All normal and dull! But I am interested in their newest watch... I'd still love to ditch the brick in my pocket mind, and depending how it goes with the volume on calls (Especially in a noisy place), I might get one of those yet.

My iPad Air 2 still runs okay, but to be honest, I think it'll be my last as well when my 4G contract runs out on it... I used to take it away with me, watch films, listen to music and that in the digs, but I'm working back home now, so, since I've been back it has mostly sat on the bed side cabinet collecting dust.
