As per Sensor Tower, 2 lakhs iOS apps could stop working soon :- As per the App analytics firm – Sensor Tower that the next major iOS update of Apple could remove 32-bit support. This would mean that nearly 200,000 apps from the App Store would be became obsolete.
According to the Sensor Tower that at least 8% of all apps the App Store would be affected by the 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. The tech giant company – Apple warned that 32-bit apps could slow down a device.
The reason behind the study is based on apps that were submitted before the month of September 2013 when iPhone 5s was launched and have not been updated since.
If Apple were to stop the 32-bit support, iOS 11 would be the best occasion. The new iOS version is expected to be revealed during the Worldwide Developers Conference in the month of June, while the finished 10.3 update has yet to be rolled out.
Recently, Apple also started removing outdated apps from the Store. According to the Sensor Tower that 47,300 applications were removed only in the month of October 2016.
The update of iOS 10.3 of the Apple will bring several changes to the mobile Operating System, including the switch to a new filesystem, as well as the addition of a Find My AirPods app.
