The process of reviewing and removing apps from the store will start on September 7, 2016. Apps that have not been updated to support the latest models, and crash on startup will be removed immediately. Apps that are affected will be contacted by Apple with suggested changes. Developers have a period of 30 days to make these changes, and submit an update. If developers cannot submit an updated version of the app within 30 days, the app will be delisted from the store. Removed apps from the store will still be associated with the developer accounts. They can be activated at a later stage after passing through the app approval process. The titles of these apps and games will not be available for other developers.
In the screenshot above taken a couple of days ago 15 of the top 25 apps are games. 1 category for more than half of the hits. Take a lot at the Top 50, most of them are games also.
