64-bit iOS App Updates Have Increased by Almost 230% in the Past Six Months
As the fall release of Apple’s iOS 11 draws near, Sensor Tower App Intelligence data shows that at least 1,900 apps have been updated in the past year with the 64-bit support required to function on the new operating system. These updates have dramatically increased in pace over the past six months, growing by 229 percent over the preceding half-year period.
Last March, a Sensor Tower analysis showed that nearly 187,000 active apps on Apple’s store could be incompatible with iOS 11 due to their lack of native support for 64-bit processors. The majority of the past year’s worth of 64-bit updates, about 63 percent, came in the period of April through July, following the publication of our report.
Of the iOS apps updated with 64-bit support in the past year, approximately 820, or about 42 percent, were games.
