Apple's latest iOS update will render older iPhones, iPads obsolete

Posted June 25, 2017

Apple has prepared developers for this transition, announcing through an iOS 10 beta earlier this year that apps will have to support 64-bit hardware in the upcoming version of iOS - that would be iOS 11 - to work on those devices. However, if the users have an older iPhone with apps you still use regularly that isn't updated often as they may want to check that situation carefully before upgrading to iOS 11.

The new operating system will also focus around "augmented reality" for users "to build apps that let users place virtual content on top of real-world scenes".

The new feature would send a prompt to nearby iOS devices on a given Wi-Fi network whenever a new one tries to connect. But it appears things are finally about to change.

Apple is surely hoping the new functionality provided with iOS 11 will push people to upgrade their device in a market that has been stagnating due to an increased time period between upgrades and a vast amount of competition.

Originally spotted by Cydia Geeks, when enabled, the Offload Unused Apps feature will remove apps that you never use, while keeping their documents and data on your device. This time the change is centred around the latest system operating update rather than a new model being dropped.

So, here's how you turn your iPhone into Dark Mode for iOS 11 beta according to Business Insider.

With the announcement of the most awaited event, Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), that will be held between 5 and 9 of June, 2017 in California, U.S.A., speculations related to the major product lines and additions have been flying about. On that page, you will see the option for Offload Unused Apps.

Affected apps will be listed under Settings General About Applications App Compatibility. It will also offer the iPad a chance to share the password for the WiFi network with this new device. Many of these capabilities are found in the first official video released for the new iPad Pro tablets. Apple announced in 2014 that 64-bit support would be a requirement for any app created after February 1, and the requirements have been stepped up bit by bit since then.
