The Apple has recently announced the release of their new mobile operating system. The Apple will release the iOS 11 for their smartphones very soon. The Apple has stated that the iPhone 5C, iPhone 5 and iPad 4 users will not get the iOS 11 update. The company is making the 64-bit processors and moving to the 64bit architecture, thus not supporting the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPad 4. The unsupported devices run on the 32-bit processors. The iPhone 5S and the newer devices will receive the update, said Apple.

The iPhone 5S runs on the 32-bit processor, and the iOS 11 only supports the 64-bit architecture, so the iOS 11 will not show almost all of the apps that run on 32-bit architecture in iPhone 5S after updating to the iOS 11. With the release of iOS 11 in this autumn season, the Apple will officially end the support for the iPhone 5, 5C and iPad 4. These smartphones will not receive any software upgrade from now on. The reason behind put an end to the support from iPhone 5, 5C and iPad 4 was the transition from 32-Bit to 64-Bit processing architecture. The 64-Bit architecture is capable of processing the data 4 billion times faster than the 32 bit.

With the iOS 11 update, all of the 32-bit apps in Apple Stores will be rendered useless and can no longer run on a newer version. Currently, the iOS 10.1 shows the warning to users when they try to install the 32-Bit app on their smartphone. The company said that the app developers must need to update their apps and make them 64 bit compatible. From the June 2018, Apple App Store for iOS and MacOS will only accept the apps, which support the 64 Bit architecture.
