    Default Apple Reminds Developers That New Mac Apps Must Support 64-Bit Starting January 2018

    Apple has posted a reminder to developers that starting January 2018 new apps for macOS must support 64-bit.

    As a reminder, new apps submitted to the Mac App Store must support 64-bit starting January 2018, and Mac app updates and existing apps must support 64-bit starting June 2018. If you distribute your apps outside the Mac App Store, we highly recommend distributing 64-bit binaries to make sure your users can continue to run your apps on future versions of macOS. The last macOS release to support 32-bit apps without compromise is macOS High Sierra.

    Wow, devs on the apple platform are really at the mercy of the apple overlords. you have to pay to keep your stuff on the apple store, pay when you sell something, pay to keep your membership, update everytime they decide to add a new "essential" feature, buy everything they make and jump through any and every hoop they decide for some unwritten reason. Blessings and prosperity.

    Well, they trying to remove legacy apps so that they don't need to maintain 32-bit libraries.

    The biggest problem is those pesky legacy phones that people are still using. its not like they haven't sold a billion of them.

    Maybe this is their way of "moving" those older phones out of the Apple ecosystem.

    Forced obsolescence at it's finest.
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".
