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.

>So do you expect apps from later Android version would surely work on old 1.5 version? I doubt that.

Just like the other user replied to you, you don't seem to understand what this is about. No, I don't expect them to work. But I don't expect them to SHOW THEMSELVES as compatible to me, and sure as hell I don't expect to get updated by force, as it happens on iOS 3.x devices right now. Please, re-read the article, you don't seem to understand what this is about.

Pardon me? 'by force' you say? But your article stated otherwise. You clicked a button to update. Please choose word correctly otherwise the 'article' is not an article but a blog post.

The App store upgrade isn't optional.
Don't skim and comment.
