anyone else bored with these articles about iPhone 5 app updates?

its a problem for early adopters yet people blindly buy

Apps still work, they just dont take up the full screen. Not more of a problem than when retina was introduced.

What the heck does that have to do with anything?

You can always NOT read the articles and NOT comment on them - such a strange foreign concept, I know.

LOL calling that a problem is a bit of an overstatement to make.
No matter what I have pre-5 iPhone or iPhone 5: Most apps are 3.5", but they all work.

No an early adopter problem is actually something breaking or such, this I would call an early-adopter trade off.

Then again, you at least get some apps in 4" already and dare I say the apps I use the most all got updated already.

At least I don't have to wait for weeks to get my iPhone 5 shipped lol, early adopters unite :D
