    So I just discovered Unity Remote will not be supported anymore in 2020.1?
    What the heck? Why?
    The simulator is not a replacement for the remote at all.
    The sensors are not supported in the simulator and even if they were I'd rather have real feedback by watching in front of the device instead of the computer screen.
    Is this a final decision or you are still debating?
    Please keep it, even not updated it's better than totally removed.

    If you remove it from Unity, any chance to make it open source and people could continue it?

    Deprecated does not mean that it is no longer supported. It is still there at least for 2020.2. Maybe there will be a replacement in 2020.x cycle?

    We almost went an entire week without Unity deprecating something without a proper replacement, so they had to squeeze in something I guess.
