@void I totally get that (the next phone is a 5SE or 6 so definitely 64bit). Gotta say though, I’m no dev, but from a users perspective, even from a gadget nerd like me, Apple have a tendency to push their agenda/will onto both devs and users at a rapid pace. That, or it’s just me getting too old to keep pace (I’m well into my thirties, but yesterday I was 25, I swear!). Anyway, you having support for older devices with the initial release(es) means that more people can still use those old phones with the Digitakt even though the app will require a newer device at some point.
Speaking of old phones, I’m using an iPhone 3GS as a remote control for various stuff, as a radio/music player in the kitchen where I have this 30pin dock with speakers thing. The phone is powerful enough to run synths like Sunrizer and NLog etc (I have a 30pin CCK used for MIDI, but that was likely used back on the iPad 2). The iPhone 5 will be dedicated to just audio stuff, like the digitakt (storing samples etc as it’s 64gb, possibly even do Bluetooth midi stuff at some point), but most importantly, I got a fully loaded Alchemy Mobile synth on it (will definitely provide mucho sampled material for the digitakt). When that phone dies, so does Alchemy Mobile as it doesn’t really exist anymore.
