The 32-bit iss ue

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

Ideally be­fore you move to iOS 11 (and while run­ning at least iOS 10.3), go to Set­tings > Gen­eral > About > Ap­pli­ca­tions. You’ll see a list of any 32-bit apps on your de­vice, which will stop work­ing if you up­grade.

If there’s no up­date avail­able for the ver­sions of those apps you al­ready own, go to the App Store and search for each app’s de­vel­oper name. They might of­fer an up­grade as an en­tirely new app, which usu­ally re­quires you to pur­chase from scratch.

Fail­ing that, visit the de­vel­oper’s web­site to check if the app is dis­con­tin­ued or has been taken on by an­other com­pany. Some, such as The Omni Group, of­fer up­grade pric­ing if their new app de­tects an older ver­sion is in­stalled. So, don’t delete the old one till you’ve checked for this.

If there’s no ob­vi­ous up­grade path, you’ll need to seek out a re­place­ment on the App Store.

Apps that are 32-bit and so in­com­pat­i­ble with iOS 11 are listed in Set­tings.
