If you happen to own an iPhone or iPod touch that is still running on iOS 3.1.3, you would have realized by now that since the 16th of this month, you would have been unable to download iOS applications directly from the App Store. There is a workaround though, which is to purchase and download applications through the iTunes route, synchronizing them after that to the iPhone or iPod touch. Guess this would affect those who are still using the iPhone 3G or earlier, considering how many believe that iOS 4 is far too much for the iPhone 3G to handle. Apple has yet to release any official press statement concerning the situation. Anyone else in the iOS 3.1.3 boat, and what are you going to do about the situation? Is this a subtle way for one to finally make that upgrade to a newer iPhone?
