Apple announced the next major update to iOS at WWDC 2017 today, calling it, you guessed it, iOS 11. Three devices will lose support, making the OS exclusive to 64-bit devices, and while the company didn't explicitly say so during its keynote, 64-bit apps.
Apple’s intention to drop 32-bit support isn’t a surprise, the Cupertino-based company has been hinting at the new move for quite some time now, ever since it started sending notifications to update apps to improve compatibility.

To date, though, Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile has been 32-bit, limiting the advantages that could be attained from 64-bit computing.
Apple this morning acknowledged the bug whereby if you change your date to May 1970 or earlier, you won't be able to restart your iOS device. The bug affects all iOS devices that utilize a 64-bit chipset.
