    Am I the only one getting the iOS 11 pop-up telling my that the MacRumors app is not compatible with iOS 11?

    It's not an official app, and not even on the App Store anymore. Basically just a wrapper app for a web view if I recall correctly, same as accessing the site normally through Safari.

    This question has been asked a fair bit recently and just to re-iterate what's written above, there is no official app for MacRumors. If anyone has one then it's unofficial and MacRumors has no control over it or making it compatible with iOS 11

    Thank you Phil A and Red Heeler. Perhaps a missed opportunity for MacRumors in the realm of customer engagement and/or site monetization (more views, more advertising, etc.)
