iOS 11 Drops Support For 32-Bit, Here’s A List Of Devices No Longer Supported

Today at WWDC, iOS 11 was announced. While many great features and improvements have been introduced, a few devices will miss out on the fun. More specifically, iOS devices that have a 32-bit processor will not be able to update to iOS 11. Below you will find a list of 32-bit iOS device that will not be able to run iOS 11.


  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 5C


  • iPad 4th Generation

The reason why these devices will no longer be compatible with iOS 11 is because all 32-bit apps don’t work in iOS 11. Apple has stopped supporting 32-bit apps to encourage developers to update their existing apps for 64-bit devices and so old, outdated apps won’t clutter the App Store.

The iOS 11 developer beta was released today, and iOS 11 will be available to everybody when it is officially released in the fall.
