It's Probably Time for Your Favorite iPhone Apps and Games to Die
A new message found in the latest
Apple is getting tough with developers in an effort to keep the
Previous versions of iOS 10 feature a message for 32-bit apps that reads, "this app may slow down your iPhone." The new message very bluntly states that the app will not function when iOS 11 arrives.
It's hard to pin down a definitive list of what apps will be affected by the new rules. Older games that don't have a steady ongoing revenue stream for developers will certainly be likely to go. Mashable identified some classic mobile games like Ridiculous Fishing, Peggle Classic, Ocarina and Great Lightsaber that are all still 32-bit.
Basically, ask yourself if the app you don't want to lose is still making its creators money? If the answer is yes, they've probably updated or will update. With video games that don't rely on micro-transactions, there isn't a huge financial incentive for developers to take time away from new projects.
Whether this update discovery ends up being part of a final release or not, it's inevitable that Apple will drop support for 32-bit apps, it's been patient with updates for two years and now it's getting aggressive .
For beloved games that hold up over time and lose support, you can probably expect the developers that survive to follow Nintendo's lead and release classic, remastered editions in the future.
On the bright side, odds are when you search 32-bit, you won't be seeing " Linkin Park 8-Bit Rebellion!" anymore.
