Apple Well, it might be safe to say that Apple's own engineers stopped testing their Apple apps with 3.x iOS devices, and have created bugs that make these apps unusable. This is to be somewhat expected, Apple has a track record of not-so-great backwards compatibility (on the Mac), but what we also expected was to not get these broken updates forced to us. It's one thing to stop updating the firmware of older iOS models, and another thing breaking them.

Bug reports have already being filed, it's mentioned in the article. But it's a different thing when bugs happen as part of the normal process, and when bugs happen because they don't test anymore with older versions (which is what I believe is happening). In the first case, the bug will get fixed eventually. In the second case, it will never will get fixed, because the new libraries don't have the same features/bugs/APIs. And that's a _big difference_ right there.
