App thinning so far...

So, any news on app thinning? Has it done anything yet? Isn't it also up to the developer to support it?

I haven't noticed any difference so I guess none of the developers of games I have installed have taken advantage of it yet but perhaps in future game updates

App slicing is currently unavailable for iOS 9 apps due to an issue affecting iCloud backups created from iOS 9 where some apps from the App Store would only restore to the same model of iOS device.

When a customer downloads your iOS 9 app, they will get the Universal version of your app, rather than the variant specific for their device type. TestFlight will continue to deliver variants for your internal testers. App slicing will be reenabled with a future software update. No action is needed by you at this time.

AFAIK, this part is still a yes, even though Apple isn't rolling it out yet as pointed by a post above.
