iOS 11 To Be Purged of Tons of Old Apps

By -

The iOS 11 is supposed to be launched this year. As per reports, the OS will be purged of a ton of old app that is wasted and abandoned. Apple has been cleaning up the Apple Store and has already got rid of some 50,000 apps. Moreover, looks like Apple will be killing off support for 32-bit.


Apple has been trying to pull off support for 32-bits since 2013, around the time 64-bit came along the way. Recently Apple has announced that all app makers must incorporate support for 64-bit which only goes to say that they are giving prominence to 64-bits. When somebody tried to open any 32-bit app, a dialog would open saying the app won’t work in the future versions. Looks like Apple to make the 64-bit framework that was launched with iPhone 5s in 2013, permanent.

The iOS 11 is going to be one revolutionary operating system, more so because it’s going to be launched along with iPhone 8 which will mark the 10th anniversary of iPhones. Besides, the kind of speculations and rumors that surround the iOS 11’s launch, everything sounds very promising.

The iSO 11 is going to be the OS Apple has made so far despite the fact there has been no reveals surrounding its features by the company. Some of the new features the iOS 11 will be having Finger-detecting dynamic keyboard which is basically an invincible keyboard that appears wherever you keep your fingers at. The keyboard is responsive to touch and changes its position according to the placement of your fingertips. Then there are chances of natural-sounding Siri to come in an effort to make the technology more lifelike. Now that Samsung too is going to launch a Siri-like AI called Bixby, Apple needs to step up its game, so it’s natural for the next Apple phone to come with a more smart and improved AI.

There are talks for a dark mode, and we think the iOS 11 may very well have that mode. It’s worth noting iOS’ dark mode isn’t anything new because Apple did launch the iOS 10 beta with a dark mode, but it disappeared in the upgrades. Slide to unlock is one of the most popular methods to unlock the home screen and we think it’ll be a great addition to the upcoming Apple iOS. And among the most exciting things that the iSO 11 will be featuring, is a camera for FaceTiming. There has been no announcement from Apple’s side, so these are only rumors.

As for the devices, the OS will be supporting; it’ll be the same ones as the preceding OS. The iOS 11 will be supporting , iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and whatever iPhone comes out in 2017 along with iPad 4, iPad Air 1, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch. Also iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad Mini 4, along with the 6th generation iPod Touch. With such promising features, we hope the iOS release date doesn’t suffer postponement.
