A classic Apple card game could say goodbye forever!
Apple’s warning remove apps with at least two years without updates it will start working in about 30 days. Unsurprisingly, millions of third-party apps are candidates for this list, but in fairness, some Apple apps should also join.
As they shared from igamesnews, texas-holdem is the game whose life depends on a strict decision that was recently announced. The classic card game was last updated in 2019thus fulfilling Apple’s conditions for removal from the App Store.
Texas Hold’em may be leaving the App Store
According to Apple, two years seems to be the removal threshold, since the apps receiving the warning letters had not been updated in the past two years. Apple does not specifically mention a time frame in their rules for developers, but according to other online applications for its removal, Texas Hold’em is obsolete.
Of course, the statement sent to hundreds of small businesses and developers says that apps deleted from the store will not be permanently deleted there can be restored after an update. However, and given that this is not the first time that Apple has said goodbye to an application that it no longer has to offer, it is not certain that it will resort to this option and Texas Hold’em could disappear permanently or temporarily. , as has happened in the past.
Since its launch on the App Store 13 years ago, Texas Hold’em has lived three important moments as one of the classics developed by Apple.
- texas-holdem created in 2008 for iOS.
- texas-holdem was removed from the App Store in 2011
- Back on the App Store in 2019 with better graphics and “more challenging gameplay”.
Apple’s history confirms that the company doesn’t sew without an apron, so it’s no surprise that the decision on the future of Texas Hold’em was made a long time ago. However, there is also the possibility, beyond the risk on this game, that in the face of the rain of criticism that this decision has received from several developers, Apple decides to postpone it or not to execute it.
