Apple intends to stop supporting 32-bit applications in the operating systems iOS and macOS. In the software platform iOS 11, this software will not work this fall, while macOS will cease to support them next year. But to prepare for this is now.
In June, Apple announced that macOS High Sierra will be the last version of the OS fully supports 32-bit software:
“The new program in the Mac App Store must support 64-bit architecture with January 2018, and updates existing applications – June 2018″.
Finding a 32-bit application in macOS, you can contact the developer to find out whether the planned update. If not, you should start looking for an alternative solution.
How to list a 32-bit application on Mac:
Step 1: Click on the Apple logo in the upper left corner.
Step 2: Click on “About this Mac”.
Step 3: In the opened window click on “system Report”.
Step 4: Next, go to “system Information”.
Step 5: In the left part of the window, find “SOFTWARE” and “Program”. Wait some time until the system will display a list of all installed applications.
Step 6: once the list is complete, scroll to the right until you see the column “64-bit (Intel)”.
Here are marked all 32-bit and 64-bit applications. Many programs will belong to Apple — they will receive the necessary update. In this case you want to view apps from third-party developers.
