Subject Re: iOS 4.3 support, do we need it?
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 21:34:57 GMT
If this metric<http://thenextweb.com/apple/2012/09/24/great-news-developers-apple-says-almost-25-ios-devices-ever-sold-already-ios-6/>is
to be believed, 4.3.x installs account for well under 10% of all iOS
installs at this point.  Seems like 5.0 would be a safe bet, at least to me.
