As it turns out, Apple is planning to stop supporting 32-bit applications in the new version of iOS.
A warning message when opening a 32-bit application in the first beta version of iOS 10.3 now warns users that "the developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility."
This popup window suggests that iOS 11 , which will be launched during this year 2017, will be the first version to offer support only with 64-bit applications .
With iOS 9 began to alert on the performance of 32-bit apps
Apple has offered support for 64-bit iOS applications since the launch of the iPhone 5S in September 2013. Apple urged developers to publish their new apps with 64-bit support starting in February 2015 and in App updates Store since June 2015.
While 32-bit applications have remained compatible to this day, iOS 9 included an alert that indicated to users that 32-bit applications could slow device performance.
Apple has re-added this alert message in the first beta of iOS 10.3 to warn that compatibility with 32-bit applications will be removed in future releases . Specifically, we talk about the Waterslide application for iPhone and iPad.
The alert mentions the following in these two versions of iOS
"Waterslide could slow down your iPad
The developer of this application needs to update it to improve its compatibility. "
IOS 10.3 beta 1:
"Waterslide needs to be updated
This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this application needs to update it to improve its compatibility. "
Differences between 32-bit applications and 64-bit applications reside in the exploration of processor resources of the iPhone and / or iPad. The 64-bit architecture supports many more memory addresses and more processing power.
