The discussion over the percentage of iPhones that get upgraded to the latest version, and why that is important, continues with Chuck Joiner, David Ginsburg, Eric Bolden, Brittany Smith, Jeff Gamet, Mark Fuccio, Andrew Orr, and Jim Rea. It isn’t just customers who make that decision; there are aspects of developers’ support of new system software version that you may not be aware of. The panel then starts a spirited discussion of why App Clips seem to have gone out of favor, and whether the use of QR codes represents a user-level threat. (Part 2)
