You're not a developer. If an an API has been deprecated in iOS 9 for the first time, it will work just fine. Apple fully supports deprecated APIs for 1-2 major releases before they are abandoned. Supporting iOS 9 is quick and easy; any well written iOS 8 app works flawlessly. The people who get intro trouble are part of three groups:
1) Those who have chosen not to write a native app like users want and are beholden to third party tools to port over their Java / Flash / whatever and have to wait for those tools to be updated
2) Those who are foolishly still trying to support iOS 5 or 6. These people's apps are filled with mountains of OS related conditional code so big they have no idea what's going on in their app anymore.
3) Those that use code that was already deprecated in iOS 8 or before, or that wasn't following best practices in iOS 8. This includes people who still can't use AutoLayout, people who still don't know how to use ARC, people who can't write a line of Swift, people who've never implemented viewWillTransitionToSize, people who still throw UIAlertView's instead of UIAlertController, and so on.
The people whose apps aren't working are poor developers. Plain and simple.
