    That's great, but I'm curious about updates to existing apps? Are developers who are still updating and supporting existing apps with cash shop items for example, required to support the iPhone x?

    I hope so because it does grind me when developers update their app with new features that revolve around giving them money, but choose to not update to support the new displays for our benefit.

    Hopefully all 64 bit apps will be forced to update for iPhone X screen soon. Sky Chart still hasn’t and it’s a bit annoying

    You know you messed up with your device, when you have to force devs this quickly to support your device.

    Devs need money to buy food. Do you expect them to work for free? Let's say you payed 0.99 for an app once, do you think that's enough money for them to keep developing their apps forever, with no extra incentive?

    I don’t think you read my message properly, but that’s okay.

    The iOS 11 developer tools were available since June 2017 I think, so what is "quickly". The other option Apple has is to basically never update their hardware and always being stuck on the same aspect ratio and resolution. It sucks for devs, but that's what it's like being dev. You need to be able to update your apps all the time for security reasons, hardware changes, changing functionality, etc.
