Apple has told developers they can now manage the availability of previous versions of their apps. As noted earlier this week, the iOS App Store is now allowing users of older versions of iOS to download specific legacy versions of apps. Users are asked if they would like to download the “last compatible version” of an app. However, developers of these apps are now able to choose whether or not they want to make these older versions available.
