Is Ios 11 Killing The 32-bit Apps?
It is assumed that iOS 11 will come with a nasty surprise, iOS Apps that aren't updated to support 64-bit will be removed from the App Store. It was only Last year that the company had pledged to remove apps that were outdated, orphaned and no longer meet guidelines.
Apple had been warning its users since the launch of iPhone 5S back in 2013, it required developers to submit new applications with 64-bit support since February 2015 and app updates since June 2015. Which means launching 32-bit apps may create a problem to their device's performance; a new alert in iOS 10.3 shows that support for these applications will be removed from future iOS launch.
When your app isn’t 64-bit compliant, the prompt that pops up on iOS while launching that app “This app has not been updated to 64-bit.Using it may affect overall system performance.”
The next update to Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 11, is in the process of development, there are few other rumours about upcoming features that could make their way, it’s also speculated that apple is planning to implement “group face time capability” in order to compete with other video calling app competitors like Skype, it will reportedly let users start a multi-person call through a group conversation in iMessage. It is anticipated that you may even find a more intelligent and natural-sounding Siri, Improved maps and many other much-awaited features.
What should be done now?
Having said that, there are a lot of businesses that might suffer if they do not upgrade their Apps from 32 bits to 64 bits, the new iOS apps submitted to the App store must include 64-bit support and be built with the iOS 8 SDK.
Accommodating Apple it will improve the performance of the iOS application and help the app to reach large consumer base. Create an outstanding app by including iOS 8 and 64-bit architecture in them.
