Well, the deployment target only *indicates* to the OS if the app should be runnable. It also helps in defining which APIs are allowed. In either, case it’s no guarantee but, if a project is not using anything too new or esoteric, it can run fine on a lot of different versions of systems. In Obj-C, it’s trivial to check if a method or class definition exists at runtime, so you can more easily support a API changes over time without needing to explicitly build on an older system. Of course, this approach is less applicable to C/C++, hence it becomes more of an indication.
