In early June will host the world conference for developers Apple WWDC 2017. So just a few months separate us from the new operating system iOS 11. The release of this OS means that tens of thousands of apps will stop working on iPhone and iPad.
As it became known, Apple is planning to discontinue support for 32-bit games and applications. Beta for iOS 10.3 began to warn the user that opens the 32-bit names that “this application will not work on future versions of the firmware.” Developers should update it for compatibility.
In iOS 10.3 beta 3, released on Monday, Apple went ahead and added a special section that lists a legacy application. A list of programs can be found under Settings –> General –> About device –> Programs.
“These programs can slow down your iPhone and will not work with future versions of iOS, if you don’t update these programs,” writes Apple. The company advises that in the absence of the updates to contact the software developers for more information.
Apple switched from 32-bit to 64-bit applications with the advent of the iPhone 5s in 2013, and end of support could affect tens of thousands of applications, if, as expected, iOS 11 will be blocked 32-bit.
According to analysts, Sensor Tower, 28% of apps in the App Store has not been updated in the previous two years.
