Apple "Apple has just released the final Golden Master build of iOS 6 to developers. Although a public version won't be available for existing users until September 19th, developers can use the final version to test against iOS apps in preparation for the new iPhone 5." Developers, get cracking. You don't want your applications to show black bars on the iPhone 5, right?

I think you missed the OP's implied point, which was not about the "horror devs are facing by this", but rather that the original criticism of android's multiple form factors from the pro-apple camp is now undermined by apple's latest product.

If the situation were the opposite, apple fanboys would be howling at android for not being able to run their apps full screen.

On a more fundamental level though, I think apple deviating from it's homogeneous one-size-fits-all approach is going to be a good thing for consumers.


Undermined? It's undermined only in bizarro universe, maybe. Every new iPhone has come with new features not in past models. That's also "fragmentation." Are current apps going to not work on the iPhone5? If so, then it's a big deal. If not, then you're grasping at straws. Trying to equate the fragmentation seen in the Android dev space to this is laughable!
