Brand new apple update could affect your apps

Your Favorite Apps Could Be Affected By Apple's New Update

And it's more or less unavoidable.

POSTEDBYDEE CUNNING

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are set to release in just a couple of days, and as always, iPhone users will be subjected to a new software update. As expected, the update comes with some handy new features, such as increased customizability, however there's one catch that you might not be aware of.

Once you've committed to the inevitable of pressing that extremely annoying “Install Update” button, your iPhone will no longer be able to support 32-bit apps. That essentially means that nearly 200 thousand game, education, entertainment, and lifestyle apps in the App Store will no longer be supported.

For the techies out there, this isn't news – app developers were warned back in 2013 that they should update their apps within these new guidelines – however, it's pretty disappointing for those of us whose favorite apps are affected. Once you've downloaded the iOS11 update, you can check this by heading to “Settings,” tapping “General,” then “About,” and then “Applications.” Here you'll be able to see which apps are 32-bit – but, unfortunately, there's no going back.
