iOS 10 update implications for NON subscription Cabbie’s Mate app
As you know, Apple will be releasing iOS10 and the iPhone 7 in middle of September. This iOS 10 update will affect all NON subscription Cabbie’s Mate customers.
The Non subscription Cabbie’s Mate app WILL NOT be compatible with iOS10. If you wish to continue to use your app, please DO NOT update your iPhone or iPad’s operating system. Please also switch OFF the auto updates function on your device so that your device does not update automatically when we release an updated Cabbie’s Mate app. If you download and install the new updated app, your Cabbie’s Mate WILL stop working.
With the iOS10 update, the A-Z map data will have to be removed from the App Store since this map is now over 3 years old. This means, after this date, if you update your iOS, update your app, delete the app or perform a factory reset on your device, you will no longer be able to download the A-Z maps you paid for. If you wish to install the app on other compatible iOS devices, please do it now before the iOS10 release. You can still download the non-subscription app on as many iOS devices you own providing you are using the same Apple ID.
As long as you do not update your operating system, do not update the app, do not delete the app and do not perform a factory reset, you should be able to use the non-subscription Cabbie’s Mate app for as long as you want.
Our legal obligation is to make sure the app you paid for works on all available compatible Apple iOS devices at the time of app purchase. Although we have no legal obligation, we have been providing fixes for the app after an iOS update and have been providing customer support via e mail without additional charges. We have been spending time and money to do this but unfortunately we have to draw a line. With the iOS10 update, we will not be providing support for the non-subscription app. If you feel this is not fair and your app should work for life, please direct all complaints to Apple, since it is their iOS updates that are causing apps to stop working.
