Apple Will Kill Some Famous Apps With iOS 11

Apple removing all the 32-bits apps from the App Store

Apple Will Kill Some Famous Apps With iOS 11

Apple celebrated the inauguration of Steve Jobs Theater with the release of the world’s most powerful iOS 11 that aims at introducing augmented reality in apps and games. The world’s ninth largest company in the world claims that iOS 11 will makes the iPhone and iPad more powerful than all their past versions.

With the new and enhanced version of the iOS platform, Apple is killing some of the apps in the App store. Before upgrading your device with the iOS 11 you should know which of your favorite apps won't survive the transition. ‘Flappy bird’ is one one of the favorites that won’t be available with the latest change. The key reason being that the latest iOS update is not compatible with 32-bit apps.

Prior to this change, Apple had sent a warning across the globe to the developers with regard to this change stating that the new iOS 11 will only support 64- bit apps. Several developers have followed up on this change and upgraded the specifications, however, many others will no longer be available in the latest operating system.

You can check which of your existing app will longer available on your iPhone after you hit the upgrade button. You need to go to the Settings→ General → About→ Applications and  you will see a list of apps that are not compatible with the iOS 11 there. If you don't see any app there then you don't have any 32-bit iOS app on your device.

BEFORE UPDATING TO IOS 11: Go to “Settings > General > About > Applications”. Verify you can live without incompatible apps listed there.

The Apple devices along with iPhone X supporting 64-bit chip include 5s, SE, 6 Plus, 6, 6s Plus, 6s, 7 Plus, and 7, along with the new fifth-generation iPad, the iPad Air and the iPad Air 2. These devices will be equipped with several AR apps available in the App Store including Ikea, Carrot weather, Complete Anatomy. Apple launched ARkit for the developers to embed AR feature to their app back in June at WWDC 2017.
