iOS 11 Might Stop The Support Of 32-Bit Apps

In 2013 IOS start the support of 64-bit when the lauched iPhone 5s . And since iOS 9 came out, when you open a legacy 32-bit app on a newer iPhone, you receive a notice saying that the app "may slow down" your device and that the developer needs to update it to "improve its compatibility".

In the recently released first beta of iOS 10.3, however, the wording in that notice has been changed. It now reads as seen in the image below.



While "future versions of iOS" is incredibly vague, this is a very strong hint that iOS 11 could be the first iteration of Apple's mobile operating system that won't support running 32-bit apps at all. If true, this will undoubtedly be announced at Apple's annual developer conference in the summer, when iOS 11 should be officially introduced.

This probably isn't going to be a huge problem because Apple has required developers to submit new apps with 64-bit support since February 2015 and app updates since June 2015. So this will only affect old apps that haven't been updated in years. Still, breaking compatibility in such a manner is a move many software makers try to avoid, but Apple seems intent on finally killing legacy 32-bit apps for iOS this year.
