Sunsetting iOS 4.x

The time has come to to put iOS 4 out to pasture. We recently shipped an update to the Apple App Store that will remove support for all iOS 4 devices. If you are currently using a device that does not support iOS 5, you will still be able to use your current update, but your device will not be eligible for future updates. We have a lot of new features in store for our users, and the only way to make sure we deliver an exceptional product is to cut ties with the older operating system. In reality, this means we are cutting ties with the iPhone 3G (released July 2008) and some older generation iPod Touches. This reflects only a very small percentage of our existing users, so it was decided to drop support for iOS 4.

If you haven’t updated your app in a while, now would be a good time. Our latest build in the App Store still supports 4.x devices. Knowing what we know about our future updates, if you have a device eligible for iOS 5, we strongly encourage you to upgrade. You can visit the Apple website for a list of all the great new features in iOS 5.

We are looking forward to a lot of great new features for Simple In/Out, and this is the first step in that process. If you are put out by this upgrade, we are sincerely sorry, but the time has come to move upward and onward. Make sure to follow this blog or our twitter account for updates. We promise you won’t have to wait long.
