Yes, but put out an update with a bug in iOS 3.0 or something, and every one of those 30 people worldwide still on 3.0 will ding you in your app reviews!

If only we can figure out a reliable way to determine when to safely bump up the minimum iOS requirements without making the people who never update their OS unhappy and descending to complain.

You could remove support for for anything older the 3GS, if you'd be prepared to loose that small demographic.
