Hi there,

Just letting you know, if you have an iPad 1 for instance, you'll be in trouble shortly. The issue is that Apple constantly discontinues updates for older machines, I believe the iPad 1 only allows to run up to iOS 5.1.1

The problem for developers like me, is that we can't even submit updates for apps or games that target less than iOS 6.0. This means that any updates we send out, won't be delivered to iPad 1 in a very short time span. And that means you will get locked out of the game.

On android the problem is not so severe because Google doesn't enforce a minimum version for updates, but on Apple this is going to get nasty for people that have old devices.

This already happened before, for instance if you have an iphone 3g or ipod old generations... you found out last year you couldn't play Dogfight any more.

Just letting you know, because the date is not set but it will be very very soon for now allowing updates on iPad 1.
