iOS7 to be out in the next hours
Developers will have to adapt, and this adaptation period could lead to some trouble and this is a thing Apple should be a lot concerned with: since Android consolidated itself as serious competition - and market-share leader after that - one of the most heralded advantages of iOS devices to their usually cheaper Android alternatives was the solid rock stability of iOS, at the expense of user and developer's control of the environment. iOS has been up to now a safe and joyful garden with huge walls. Will costumers be willing to be inside this walls if it becomes not so safe and joyful? I don't think so, and neither do Apple, so they released tight rules for the App Store concerning the new iOS: in a few words, the apps which cannot adapt will be left out. I'm sure most developers had plenty of time to make the necessary changes with the various iOS7 betas, but it won't be surprising if a significant number of apps seem to be a little rushed out.
