App Store Submission Policy iPhone OS 3.0 on Star Trek movie official release day

It is easy to remember which day Apple is officially changing its App Store submission policy based on the Sci-Fi movie “Star Trek” official release day.
Beginning today, any app submitted that isn’t 3.0 compatible will be rejected.
Even your app is running on OS 2.x, you would have to test on OS 3.0 beta 5 before submitting update or new application. Apple is going to remove app that don’t run on OS 3.0 from App Store. It may be a strategy to clear out junk app in the App Store.
This post here explains better.
One potential issue as outlined by our tipster Nick is as follows:
Apple also says that most apps will run on 3.0 without any changes, however, some major changes were made and I suspect any app using a UIAlertView (pretty much any app with a confirm/deny dialog) will need to be changed due to the change made to the indexing order of the buttons on that view.
