Apple rolls out iOS 6.1

With the release of the new iOS 6.0-6.1 Apple has discontinued support for the older iPods and iPhones. This means they will not accept Apps (like Dashboss) unless they are submitted using the newest Software Development Kit (SDK). Unfortunately, this SDK totally drops support for any device with an ARMv6 process and/or running any iOS 4.2 or older. They reject any Apps submitted that try to support iOS versions older than 4.3 and/or ARMv6 devices.

What this boils down to is that you need to be especially cognizant of the devices that you upgrade beyond v1.6 of Dashboss, because the new requirements are now in place (we snuck under the wire with Dashboss v1.6).

Here’s a little table to help clarify:
