This is why Apple is slowing killing its 'App' store, more and more developers/companies will move to progressive websites, one version will work across all devices, no 'Apple' approval and generally a lot more cost effective to maintain...

Caching information for use offline and updating data when back online is the future for websites / web apps :)

This is bad for "independent developers", but good for hourly types if there is budget left and a cost benefit ratio that won't leave them unemployed.

Desktop programmer here. I despise the hipstery culture of web/app programmers and how they dominate /r/programming. They're all so faggy too. At least with desktop and game programming you have a few non-fags left, and there's almost none in embedded programming.

Apple's always been on the money side. They first made it easy to get apps on the app store so people could buy them. More money for them. Now that the iPhone X is not selling well, I think they're pushing for the apps to be more iPhone X friendly to people feel left behind and start buying the phone.

It is not a first time when they require developers to update projects with new SDK and support last technologies. And what is more annoying a deprecated methods that add a huge of warnings after each SDK update.

Apple dictates that all new apps must fully support the iPhone X screen | Ars Technica

'Today, Apple emailed iOS developers to explore new features in iOS 11 like ARKit. ', "It makes sense to require devs to support the iPhone X for new apps—devs would be shooting themselves in the foot if they didn't do this anyway."

'Starting April 2018, all new iOS apps submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK, included in Xcode 9 or later. ', "In that email, the company also announced that all new apps submitted from April 2018 onward must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the iPhone X's new display.", " Eventually, though, you can bet that Apple will require all app updates—changes to existing apps, not just wholly new apps—to support the iPhone X. That's going to cause more of a scramble in the development community."
