Hello community,

I'm here with bad news for those who use admob as revenue stream and cannot update SDK's or apps.
I've just received a mail from Google saying that they will stop serving ads from 15 Sept. 2016 for sdk's versions 6.4.1 and lower. This will affect multiple apps for which source code we've lost or cannot update due to iP infringement of course if they still generates revenue through admob.
Here is what I've received:
Hi,
AdMob is committed to providing you the most effective monetization solutions. As we innovate, it’s important that we leverage the latest technologies to bolster our platform. As part of this movement, we are deprecating versions 6.4.1 and lower of the Android Google Mobile Ads SDK on September 15th, 2016.
In order to ensure that your ads continue to serve after September 15th, 2016, please upgrade to Google Mobile Ads SDK 7.0.0 or higher.
The newer Google Mobile Ads SDKs have many more benefits for you:
  • Seamless auto-updates. Changes to the Google Mobile Ads SDK for Android get pushed seamlessly to users through Google Play services, so you can focus your time where it matters
    • You won’t need to spend time updating your apps with the latest versions of the ads SDK each time it changes
    • New features and bug fixes will also reach users through auto-updates
  • Better user experiences. Users will find it easier to manage updating their apps as some improvements will automatically be received in the background.

Yeah, I saw that. That only proves that we must keep a consisted and updated source control so that we can quickly act on it.

The 6.4.1 has a release date 2013‑04‑18.

True I didn't know the release date, but I know I'm having a lot of apps from Jan 2015 that still makes great money even though i never update them.
