Don’t lose your iPhone and iPad apps with rollout of iOS 11

Apple’s next iOS update will make many older apps obsolete. 

With the new iOS 11, the company plans to discontinue support for 32-bit apps and will only launch those that are compatible with the newer 64-bit architecture. 

Users can find out if their apps will be affected in the settings menu. Under “General,” select “About” and then tap on “Applications.” 

Any apps that won’t function after the update should appear here. If none pop up, you probably don’t have any problematic apps. 

If a developer doesn’t make the 64-bit upgrade in time, users will have to search for alternative apps with similar functionalities. — dpa
