App analytics firm Sensor Tower conducted a survey on the assumption that Apple’s next major iOS update could remove 32-bit support. This would mean that nearly 200,000 apps from the App Store would be rendered obsolete.
Specifically, Sensor Tower revealed that about 8% of all applications in the App Store would be affected by a possible removal of 32-bit support in iOS 11. This move could be possible, considering that a message recently appeared in the first beta version of iOS 10.3, warning that 32-bit apps “will not work with future versions of iOS”. Previously, Apple warned that 32-bit apps could slow down a device.
