Thanks, much! I'm sure, like most things, it was about money. Apple decided to cut costs and probably perceived little downside to it in this case.Great round-up, as always, Nick : )
I want to put two of the stats together here: Mobile gaming made over $11 Billion in the first quarter of this year. That's almost $4 Billion per month. Yet apple has decided it needs to slash its affiliate commission from 7% to 2.5%. Because...why? Greed? Abject disinterest for community?
I wonder how affiliates will respond. Perhaps affiliate sites will start covering homebrew apps/tweaks and being more critical of the insulting treatment we receive from apple. Just a thought.
I also have an ipad 4, and this is my same strategy. Some games, though, require updating to play them (such as always-online connected games). I don't know whether those games will also require switching to the new ios, though I certainly hope not.So, my strategy,with my aging iPad 4, when the deadly 11 appears, is to not update to IOS 11 and not update any of my existing games...I will maintain what I have and perhaps someday I will get another iPad to handle the newer stuff that comes out....I will be damned if I am going to willingly exterminate the games I already paid for, even if I miss out on future content.
