In a brief update to its iPhone Developer news and announcements page, Apple has revealed that it is ending support for iOS 2.x apps. The post, which urges developers to review Apple’s iOS 4 Readiness Checklist, states that “the App Store will no longer support applications that target iOS 2.x,” while reminding developers that “[a]ll new applications and updates to existing applications must be built with iPhone SDK 4.” Apple released iOS 4 on June 21 as a free update for all iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, second-, and third-generation iPod touch users.
