if ios 10 release breaks three of my games

i'll be selling my air2 and 6s+ and move over to android. I've had enough with apple's "fixing and optimising" and breaking gaming with every ios release. Now i'm waiting to see their new software in a couple of months.

With Android you rarely - if at all - get OS updates, so you won't have that problem anymore at least

I won't update my OS. I see no point in risking breaking many games for few gains, if any.

I think I've learned my lesson.

With Android no CAVE's shmups and many other games I love.
So I'll wait for good news before updating.

iOS 10 isn't released until autumn so there's every chance that either iOS 10 will be fixed to not break games or the devs will have updated the games to cope by then.

Wow, beta software has bugs and breaks stuff, who woulda thunk it?????

Everybody knows that beta 1 is always the most buggy, at least wait until beta 5 or 6 before you start to panic.

Who woulda think that final version breaks games? That has never happened before.

I never updated my iPad 4 from its original 7.0 version in fear of crippling older games so I was very surprised after updating to 9.0v. Turned out to be only a small sacrifice and overall was worth it. I know its a gamble to update and not sure if I'd do it again on this device. Android plays games ok (I've a bunch) but iOS seems to play them better imo so the expense of getting a new iPad when its time is dreaded but to continue my preferred way of gaming I'm commited in having to play by Apples rules.

You really don't need to wait and see on breaking stuff.

First off, I'd avoid updating if you can. I'm still on ios7 and ios8. Things work just fine. Many of the newest features of the latest version of iOS aren't for IpT5 anyways.

Good Android devices can be had affordably. I got an LG G4 for $220 used. I hear solid tablets can go for around that too.
