Apple may drop support for 32-bit apps with iOS 11

Apple may be planning to end support for 32-bit apps with iOS 11. Founder and CEO of @PSPDFKit posted a screenshot of a pop up that he got when using iOS 10.3 beta, which stated that “this app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility.” This suggests that the company may be planning to phase out 32-bit apps completely and move entirely to 64-bit. Instead of making this change in an incremental update in iOS 10, the company will most likely save it for its next major update. 

Apple has been using 64-bit processors on its iOS devices since launching the iPhone 5s. This means that 32-bit based devices like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c will become more or less obsolete as they will stop getting any iOS or app updates. 

Apple started rolling out the iOS 10.3 beta version last month and it offers an option to find the user’s missing AirPods. The process works in a manner similar to finding an iPhone in which sound is played on either one or both AirPods. In case the AirPods are inside their case, or need to be recharged, or outside the range of any iOS device, the system will only show the last recorded location.
