Next iOS upgrade could ‘break’ almost 200,000 apps

Operating system updates are always welcome because of the new features and security enhancements they bring. But iOS 11, the next version of the iPhones system, can have a more tragic consequence: according to Business Insider, it could cause almost 200,000 App Store apps to crash.

The reason for this, according to the site, is that the next version of the operating system will no longer support 32-bit applications. All Apple cellphones since the iPhone 5S have 64-bit processors, which in a nutshell, allows applications to run faster and more economically. 32-bit apps, however, can not take advantage of these advantages.

For this reason, dropping support for such apps has been mentioned since 2013. But earlier this year, some users started getting notifications that 32-bit apps would not work on future versions of iOS. One of the warnings of this type was posted on Twitter, and can be read below:

One more sign that support would be over was noticed by the Touch Arcade website in June. The site realized that some 32-bit apps no longer appear in the App Store searches. Even so, by accessing the direct link from the application, it was still possible to download it. That would be a way for Apple to encourage app developers to update their creations.

What to do?

According to the company SensorTower, which does market research on applications, there are more than 187,000 apps in the Apple store that do not yet have 64-bit version. That would represent about 7.8 percent of the 2.4 million apps the company estimated in March that they were in the store. The vast majority of them are games, but the categories “education”, “entertainment” and “lifestyle” also have many apps like that.

However, there is a relatively easy solution to the problem: it is enough for the app’s creators to update it to 64-bit. This, however, depends on the developers: users can not do much if an app they use is not upgraded. In that case, the only answer is not upgrading to iOS 11 so the app will continue to work, but this is obviously not the ideal solution.

If you want to know if some of your apps are still 32-bit, there is a relatively simple way to do this. Open the “Settings” app, choose “General”, then “About” and finally “Applications.” If you have any 32-bit applications, it will appear in this list; If not, you simply will not be able to access the list.
