It's official, 32-bit apps no longer run on iOS 11

As we have known for a long time, Apple is leaving aside support for everything that has to do with 32 bits , whether mobile devices or applications. This is one of the reasons why the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c will not receive the upgrade to iOS 11.

A few days ago we talked about how 32-bit applications no longer appeared in the search results in the App Store, but now is a reality. Any application based on this architecture will not be able to run on iOS 11 .


If you have your iPhone upgraded to the first beta of iOS 11, you'll notice that when you try to open any 32-bit application, it will jump to the screen . In this window you can read the following:


In addition, we will have two buttons on the screen. One of them dubbed "Ok", where we will simply accept our destiny, and another called "More Information", which would probably show more data about why it does not work ; However, in this first beta this option does nothing. Unlike previous versions like iOS 10, in which only an alert was skipped, in this new update we will not even be able to run the apps.

Very advanced hardware

IOS 11 is not the only system that will set aside 32-bit apps. According to Apple, macOS High Sierra will be the latest version that will support this architecture , forcing developers to upgrade their existing apps.

Recall that the devices that currently support iOS 11-iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7, all carry a 64-bit processor, so continue to use apps in this category on devices with hardware And more advanced software is basically a drag .

Remember that the beta of the new Apple system is now available to developers. However, being the first, it could be a bit unstable .

Have you installed the beta on your device? Tell us how you have gone!
