Like at the Oscars In Memoriam, both you and I, it’s time that we bid farewell to all those 32-Bit apps that have added the extra zest into our lives for the past couple of years.


I’m talking about you Flappy Birds.

Although it’s not just the apps that are making the big jump towards the 64-Bit era. Even the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C both of which were the last 32-Bit phones to be created by Apple has seen their days come to an end as it is no longer available to be further updated to the new 64-Bit supported iOS 11.


I know, It’s sad indeed.


But hey its great in a way that Apple is carrying the torch and being the first to make such a big change, kind of like that moment in our lives when Apple decided to remove the headphone jack on all their new and upcoming iPhones.

It’s not really a torch.





We raged, we hated it, but then we came around to loving it.


Similarly you ‘might’ hate Apple for doing this, but all is well and in fact by making this jump from the 32-Bit to 64-Bit it actually will only benefit you even more as Apple can speed things up, tighten the security of all their apps, and further give you a much crispier and seamless experience.


So if you are on iOS 10.3 (or older) and if you ever open an app and get a message on your iPhone saying:

“This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility.”

Or if you are on iOS 11 and you get a message saying:

“The developer of this app needs to update it to work with iOS 11.”

Don’t worry. 🙂


This simple guide will show you on how to check 32-bit apps installed on iPhone that won’t work in iOS 11 and take the necessary steps to fix that.






How to Check 32-Bit Apps Installed on iPhone: 2 Steps



1.  Checking for 32-Bit Apps


Step 1:  This is pretty easy to do especially if you’re currently on iOS 10.3. All you have to do is just head over to your Settings and then General.

Step 2:  Next tap on About and then select Applications.

This is where you’ll see a complete list of all the outdated 32-Bit apps that you have on your iPhone right now.

Now if you find that you can’t seem to tap on Applications and you don’t see an arrow next to it, then that means you don’t have any 32-Bit apps and you don’t have to worry about anything right now. 🙂





2.  Contact the Developer


I’m guessing you have 32-bit apps installed then huh?


Don’t worry, it’s pretty shit simple.


If some of these 32-Bit apps are of great importance to you, then what you can do is just send a simple little message to the developer so that you know if there is any upcoming updates in the works.


To do that


Step 1:  Head over to the app (that you want to know) on your App Store by just tapping on its name in the 32-Bit list (where you were just now). Then tap on Developer Website.

Step 2:  From there just head over to their contact page and leave them a message.




But what do you do if the app is no longer in the App Store?


Then you’re going to need to hunt them down on the web to get your answer.

What’s next?


If you are able to get in touch with the app’s developer, wait for their confirmation.


If you haven’t already updated your iOS to iOS 11, you might not want to do that. This is because once you update the app, it won’t work in the new iOS version since it is a 32-Bit app.


But you might feel that the security risks of not updating your iPhone kinda outweighs having the app itself. If that’s the case then take a few minutes to outweigh both the goods and the bads before jumping onto the train.
