Apple plans murder for planet of the apps

A decade since launching the first iPhone and nine years since opening the App Store, Apple now intends annihilating almost 200,000 32-bit iOS apps. It has been warning us of these plans for some time.

What is happening

Apple first began telling developers to submit apps in 64-bit in 2014, shortly after it began putting 64-bit capable chips inside the iPhone 5s and iPads in 2013.

The company hasn’t held off on this warning, and while it has delayed the cut-off point, it hasn’t stopped telling developers to submit 64-bit apps.

In theory, this means any app released or updated since early 2015 will already be a 64-bit app.
