Apple is set for developer’s conference in San Jose today, and ahead of its keynote address. Gives clear understanding on the rumored end to 32-bit apps altogether. Now, ahead of the event reports hint 32-bit apps briefly removed from App Store search results altogether.
iOS 11 reported to bring many new changes. Including new animation, notification graphic tweaks, revamp of the Apple Music app, and much more. Many iPad-centric changes expected as well.
Removing 32-Bit Apps
The 32-bit apps were no longer showing up in search results in App Store for a while. Searching for games like Touch Arcade, Ridiculous Fishing, Dungeon Raid, and more games. The report claimed that the apps are still available via a direct link.
However, 32-bit apps began showing up again after a 12-24 hour period, the report claimed. This indicates Apple doing some test of sorts, and testifies further iOS 11, reported to support only 64-bit apps, will kill support altogether in the future.
Advantages of 64-bit apps include dropping age-old technology, an app eventually demanding quite less space on your iPhone, and the hardware itself getting rid of unnecessary 32-bit components altogether.
