Despite everything, if you’re holding tight to a telephone running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, you should need to budget a plan for an upgrade. Google has cautioned developers that it’s expostulating support for Ice Cream Sandwich in up and coming forms of Play Services, the structure that gives Android applications and gadgets access to key highlights without requiring undeniable operating framework updates.
Existing developer kit components will proceed to work, and individual parts may keep on supporting the OS going ahead, yet “many” more up to date toolbox iterations will require at any rate Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
This doesn’t leave Ice Cream Sandwich clients totally between a rock and a hard place, yet it will provoke some genuine choices. Numerous developers should either convey somewhere around two forms of their application (with and without legacy bolster) or else acknowledge that they’re losing a part of their potential group of people, anyway little it may be.
It adequately sums as far as possible of help for Android 4.0, regardless of whether the product stay valuable in some capacity for some time to come.
Google isn’t also stressed. It noticed that under 1 percent of Android clients on Google Play are running the 2011-time stage (0.3 percent starting late October 2018). We’d include that it may just be excessively troublesome, making it impossible to help programming that far back, particularly if there are arranged highlights that may make clashes.
At the point when there are in excess of 2 billion dynamic Android clients, however, the choice will result in a huge number of individuals continuously losing access to the most recent applications and Google administrations.
