iOS 10 could be the last version of Apple’s mobile operating system that supports 32-bit apps. Developer Steven Troughton-Smith makes relevant information via Twitter, but without cite specific sources. Accordingly, Apple put in IOS 11 only on 64-bit applications.
Troughton-Smith advises all iOS developers via Tweet to immediately nachzuliefern 64-bit support for older apps (if not already done). Otherwise, the applications would not survive this year’s update to the next version of iOS. Said 32-bit applications would no longer be feasible in iOS. 11
End was in sight
The finish on rates of 32-bit apps for iPhone and iPad hinted at for some time. Since the release of iOS 9 in September 2015 Apple warns when running 32-bit apps sporadically before that applications can affect the performance of the iOS device.
In iOS 10.3 aggravated Apple the tone for the alarm: the corresponding app will not work with future versions of iOS. Information about when the support ends exactly, the iPhone Group does not. According to Steven Troughton-Smith, it will be ready with the introduction of iOS 11, which is expected in September. At WWDC in June Apple CEO Tim Cook will report to the 32-bit future of iOS apps probably more accurate.
Six months ago, Apple launched a quality campaign already in the App Store. The final departure of 32 bits could be the next step of this action. Apple’s new video editing tool that clip only runs on 64-bit chips, which is why users of based on 32-bit technology devices iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPad 4 can not use the app, despite the latest iOS version.
make 32-bit applications identify
Users have the opportunity to check whether 32-bit programs on their iOS devices still present. About Settings> General> About> Apps the system lists all older applications. If in addition to apps no arrow is shown to the right, no 32-bit applications are installed; otherwise they will be listed here.
Future Apple ARM chips without 32-bit support
Troughton-Smith, we have another consequence of the complete iOS shift to 64-bit: Apple’s upcoming mobile processors are also not offer 32-bit support more. Apple would as likely free vacate capacity for other features.
The step appears consistently as Apple’s A-chips anyway always require the latest to launch the processors iOS version. If the operating system only uses 64 bits, it can do the installed hardware as well.
