    Question Query regarding app distribution system
    Hello Everyone,

    I have an question regarding app distribution system via app store.
    I have an app on app store which interacts with a different client-servers at various locations. It functions like version 1.0 of iphone app will be able to properly interact with version 1.0 of the client-server. Now the problem is few of my clients are late/reluctant in upgrading their server to which the iphone users connect. Once I release an update(say 2.0) for my iphone app there are few client-server which are still running 1.0 version. And if the end users of these clients installs the update (2.0) for his iphone app (unknowingly, the client-server which he is gonna connect to is still on 1.0), he makes his app unusable.
    how to deal with these types of scenarios?

    Can I develop my new updates to the application which interacts with the server before upgrading themselves OR can I develop something which automatically rolls back the update if server version mismatches?

    Kindly suggest how to deal with this problem!

    Would extremely grateful for your suggestions.

    Many thanks,
    Manu

    I dont really understand your question, but I think your asking if you can update your iOS application on the App Store, the awnser is yes you can.
    But you have to state the system requirements needed to run the updated app, along side the app store listing, if you want your customers to update, then you have to contact them, and tell them what the new system specifications have to be, to run the upgraded application.

    In short, you have to have a dialog with your clients.

    Regards Mark
