Apple to Stop 187,000 iPhone Apps with the Release of iOS 11

When it’ll go live next month, iOS 11 will bring a long list of welcome improvements, but also a controversial change that would impact a substantial number of iPhone and iPad apps.

The next version of iOS won’t support 32-bit apps, and according to statistics, this would impact no more, no less than 187,000 apps that would be removed from the App Store at some point unless updated to 64-bit.

Even though the decision seems rather dramatic, it doesn’t come as a big surprise and developers were provided with enough time to update their apps to 64-bit and avoid being pulled from the App Store. The iPhone 5s, which got to see daylight in 2013, debuted with a 64-bit chip, and all its successors adopted the same approach, with Apple’s direction pretty obvious from that point on.

Furthermore, with the release of the first iOS 11 betas earlier this year, more and more users started getting notifications of 32-bit apps not working on the new OS versions, with developers prompted to update to 64-bit as soon as possible.
