I'm also looking for thoughts on what will happen down the road. If i get a low end device, will I have to buy another used apple product to keep building?
I know very little about the software cycle of apple. I'm a microsoft guy and could go on for days about windows phone 8 vs windows phone 7.8 :) But I need some help with the iOS stuff.
P.S. I'm looking for legal ways, so no VMWare/Virtual Box shenanigans.
