[excerpt quote=\"
That means anyone with an iPhone 5 or 5C will no longer receive software updates for either new features, or more importantly security fixes. The iPad 4 will also stop receiving updates.

But it also means that for users of #Apple’s newer smartphones and tablet computers, including the latest iPhone 7 and iPad, some apps that are 32-bit-only and not coded to operate in a 64-bit system will cease to work once their devices are updated to iOS 11.
\" /]

With older 32bit-only devices not upgraded to iOS11 and no longer receiving updates, especially security updates, being unfortunate, at least the devices will continue operate with their existing installed 32bit apps.

However, I suspect there might be a lot of people with 64bit devices upset that their prior 32bit apps will no longer work. One would think that this type of unforced error mentality would be avoided by now?
