It seems like a hard decision for me to make. On the one hand, I want to use the latest version of PHP and keep my apps up-to-date using the latest practises. But I’m still finding a huge amount of my customers use shared hosting which have PHP versions 5.4 etc. I don’t want to alienate an already shrinking marketplace of users by saying we only support 7. For the most part, if you make an app for PHP 5.4 it will work for PHP 7+.
Any thoughts or considerations on this topic?
