    Apple :apple: has finally placed a deadline on its rejection of apps that use UDIDs. As of 1st May 2013, Apple will no longer accept new apps that use the Universal Device Identifier (UDID). In addition, all apps must be compatible with Apple’s Retina displays and iPhone apps must support the iPhone 5 which has 4? retina display, or they’re no go.

    The ban on apps that don’t support the iPhone 5?s display is an interesting one, as there are still many apps out there on the store that are stuck at the old device resolution of the iPhone 4/4S. For whatever reason, Apple has had a hard time convincing some developers to update their apps to support the iPhone 5?s display. While most marquee apps have been updated, there are still a few on my device that are not updated. Now, if they want to fix any bugs or add any new features, they’ll also have to be iPhone 5-ready.

    Does this mean that an app that is not compliant will go away or can we still keep it on our phone if it is not in the app store?
