IOS 11 removes support for 32-bit apps, renders legacy iDevices obsolete

Apple's Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi speaks during the opening keynote address the 2017 Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) at the San Jose Convention Center on June 5, 2017 in San Jose, California.

If you have reservations but are still undaunted, you might want to wait until the public beta arrives next month.

The good news is that iOS launches usually coincide with new iPhone releases, so you can snag yourself a brand-new smartphone or a reduced-price iPhone 7 and try out all that iOS 11 has to offer.

What's new in iOS 11 and how it compares to iOS 10.




The iOS 11 update is free for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, but is only coming to a select group of devices. Apple Pay received a major update that sees it making bigger strides towards overtaking traditional payment methods, new camera features were introduced that threaten to kill off existing photo apps, and Siri will also receive some significant improvements.

We got a new Dock, which can be stuffed with far more apps than the old one, and that acts as an app switcher accessible from anywhere - not just a Home screen. Apple ramps up the options in the iOS 11 update with tweaks and new features for iMessages. The entire point of developers having the software is to test it out with their apps, so you might find that some of your apps become unusable or that you lose information. The shift to 64-bit apps means those devices will have to remain on iOS 10. This allows you to keep all of your iMessage and Text conversations in sync across your devices using iCloud.

So, here's how you turn your iPhone into Dark Mode for iOS 11 beta according to Business Insider. This will also help keep large message thread storage in check without the need to delete threads all the time.
