With the release of iOS 5 coming in just a few days – on October 12 – I’m still not seeing a lot of iPad apps getting updates for the new OS version. I’ve seen a handful – most recently iA Writer and Evernote – and at one point thought the pace of updates was increasing, but lately not so much.
I’m basing this only on the updates I see for my own installed iPad apps (around 200 at the moment) and in RSS feeds for updated apps. Unless what I’m seeing is not representative at all of iPad apps as a whole, then there are very few apps that have been updated leading up to the iOS 5 release.
So I’m wondering if this means the majority of apps don’t need updates, or the devs ares till working on them, or I there a backlog of updated apps under review by Apple. If you’re an iPad app developer and you have any thoughts or insight on this, I’d love to hear them in the comments.
