Upgrading to iOS 11? Beware 180,000 Apps won’t be compatible.by Anshul Sharma Fluper App DevelopmentCompany UAE
Everyone’s eagerly waiting to try out the latest iOS. September will mark the launch of the iOS that the company claims to be the strongest OS and a benchmark for other developers that will be able to perform augmented reality tasks on apps and games while giving faster and smarter processing.
With the latest Apple iOS there are new norms that Apple implemented now but were announced earlier as advices. Now, in accordance to its announcements Apple has stopped supporting 32 bits apps which will disable around 180,000 apps if not shifted to 64 bit. It is to be understood that Apple shouldn’t be blamed for this.
Since the launch of its iOS 9 inside iphone 5S with the 64 bit processor the company tried to signal and direct app development companies to shift their apps to 64 bit. 5S was launched back in 2013 and 4 years look like a sufficient amount of time to shift the apps to 64 bit versions.
While Apple was not languid in doling out regular warning messages to its customers regarding the orientation changes required and non -functioning in the apps when the iOS 11 will be launched, it began as early as the first month of 2017. Gizmodo was among the first ones to notice that some of the 32 bit apps had already started to disappear from the app store in as early as June. However, the direct links were available to the 32 bit apps.
This surely means that your favorite app developers should start upgrading the versions of their apps to 64 bit to remain in your phones.
Oliver Yeh, the co –founder of app intelligence firm Sensor Tower says that there are about 187,000 32 bit apps on the app store which forms about 8% of the total iphone apps. Sensor Towers projected that there are about 2.4 million apps on the app store itself.
We cannot present you the entire list of the 32 bit apps but some of the apps that won’t be working with the latest iOS can be named here sourced from business insider. These apps are popular among iOS users.
- Youtube Capture, video recording app that had as a many as 200,000 installs previous month, reported by Sensor Tower.
- iSpadez, card game.
- Neo Nectaris, military strategy game.
- Infinity Blade, role playing fighting game.
