Apple's Clips app does not work on 32-bit devices
Has Clips, Apple's new video editing app, piqued your interest? If so, good luck downloading it on your iPhone 5/5c or iPad 4. That's because the free of charge video creation app lacks support for 32-bit iOS devices despite requiring the recently-released iOS 10.3, which in itself runs on 32-bit iOS devices.
As first noted by AppleInsider, this could be interpreted as another sign that Apple will stop supporting 32-bit devices when iOS 11 releases later this year.
“It is not exactly clear when Apple will completely drop support for 32-bit devices in the iOS itself,” writes the publication. “The omission of 32-bit device compatibility appears to be another step for the company in that direction.”
In another sign that iOS 11 will make the end of the road for 32-bit apps and devices, Apple's changed a warning about 32-bit apps on iOS 10.3. The reworded prompt now cautions users that using a 32-bit app will slow down their 64-bit device.
TUTORIAL: How to identify 32-bit apps that are installed on your iOS device
“This app will not work with future version of iOS,” reads the reworded prompt on iOS 10.3. Moreover, iOS 10.3 includes a new App Compatibility section within the Settings app that names and shames all 32-bit apps that are installed on your device.
