According to prominent developer Steven Troughton-Smith, Apples iOS will drop support for 32-bit applications at the next big update iOS 11 this fall, moving over to an entirely 64-bit ecosystem.

Starting with iOS 10.3, Apple has started alerting users when they open a 32-bit app on iOS. Apple alerted users it may slow down device performance because the app was 32-bit.

Apple also removed a number of non-compliant apps from the App Store and sent an email out to developers reminding them to include 64-bit support in their builds since September of last year.
