Apple Ends iPhoneOS 2.x Support

July 1st, 2010 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: iOS | No Comments »

Apple has announced it will no longer support iPhoneOS 2.x devices. Owners of iPhoneOS 2.x should upgrade to at least iPhoneOS 3.x or iOS 4.0. iPhoneOS 2.x launched with the iPhone 3G.

Firmware updates for the first generation iPhone and iPod Touch have already been halted by the company which makes it likely that Apple will phase out the iPhone 3G next year as they probably introduce the iPhone 5 and iOS 5.x.

By dropping support, Apple devaluates the old iPhone hardware, rendering it worthless for selling on. Updates and new apps are obligated to be created in the iOS 4.0 SDK which is the start for phasing out iPhone 3.x based hardware as well.
