If you are still an addictive user to the classic, old iPhone game, maybe you are the time to give up these games.
Apple's new iOS system will completely abandon the support for 32-bit applications, those who do not upgrade to 64-bit applications, will stop working (if you update to the new system), and for many applications to the developer Said that they have no power and resources to update the application, which includes those very old game, the most obvious, perhaps the number of people have been the magic of Flappy Bird, it is shining on the iOS platform. Unless someone will stand out to save these valuable old applications ...
For gamers, maybe they have seen such a situation, such as the famous "Bioshock" game, it only appeared on the iOS platform for a short period of time. In 2014, the release of high-quality games on mobile systems was a big thing, at that time, "angry bird" was one of the most promising applications. A year later, Apple released a new system, but "Bioshock" publishers refused to release support for the new system version of the game, but also "Bioshock" removed from the App Store ... ...
This is just a case, but now this incompatible problem, is ready to spread to the entire App Store. Since 2014, Apple has been to users and developers to send incompatible notice, and Apple's attitude has been very clear: either update, or stop. When iPhone and iPad users install the latest software updates in September, then unsupported applications will become useless.
This is a real thing for some developers, after all, update these applications is not a simple matter, developers pointed out that in the mobile system outside the world, the application (software) stability significantly larger For example, computer software, after becoming incompatible with the new system, many computer system software has been strong for 10 years, and almost all of the game console, throughout the life of the equipment to support their own applications (software ).
But with the progress of science and technology, many ordinary users will change their smart phones every two years or so, and developers in order to keep up with the new specifications and the pace of the new system, they can only be forced to make a choice, the limited Resources are used in the new App, these App are usually more profitable, and many App, and ultimately the lack of long-term support.
We all know that the Android platform takes a different path.Android platform always allows the user to manually install the official app store does not provide App, users may encounter compatibility problems, but they have the opportunity to try to make the App run. However, this kind of open distributed approach is brought about by the piracy and serious security problems the Apple Corp. There are reasonable grounds in this respect to strict management of App Store App, so the iOS platform does not of course reference method Android platform.
So how do you save these old app? Some friends mentioned that Apple can create a simulator, by creating a model equivalent to the old version of the simulator, so Apple can be unlimited to maintain the vitality of the past system, and Nintendo has been doing similar things. A simulator can also make money in nostalgia, Apple can also let its software open source, then the developer will be able to create their own simulator. However, such a proposal is almost impossible to achieve, after all, scrapped equipment has always been Apple's practice, Apple needs users to buy a new iPhone, update the configuration.
But fortunately, many developers are working independently, so that traditional applications can continue to exist in this world. Some game companies are pursuing a business model that specializes in updating old games that attract modern players. A high level of a game studio mentioned that this is a huge technical work. It is reported that the plan has begun to get a return, many consumers are willing to pay for those old, classic games.
At the moment we are not clear whether all the upcoming iOS games will have a similar savior, regardless of their entertainment ability. And for those who have spent hours playing these games, these games are part of history. If Apple decides to bid farewell to these traditions, we will lose something.
