I think most of us are already aware, but for the sake of everyone else, I might as well post it here.
The Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. apps will be taken down the iOS/Android stores starting December 15th of this year for "various reasons".
Notice from Bandai-Namco Japan:

All apps display this notice:

There seems to have been no updates from the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. themselves - their site and social media accounts have not been updated since September.

On the brighter side, Bandai Namco of Japan has released a carbon copy of the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app called the Tamagotchi Classic but it will be a paid app at US$4.13.
