Apple's transition of Applications from 32-bit to 64-bit is now in full swing



While Apple's transition to 64-bit entered full swing in mid 2017 with the launch of iOS 11, the company is now rallying its PC users to move to the more advanced technology, as it begins alerting those that are still stuck to older Mac apps.

The latest version of Apple's MacOS software, MacOS High Sierra and at least the very next version of the software will still support older apps running on 32-bits, though the company's computer operating system is transitioning to the more advanced technology.

If you've installed the latest version of Apple's MacOS software, you'll get a warning whenever you try to open an older apps running on 32-bit technology.

Apple had warned its developers that MacOS High Sierra would be the last version of the operating system to fully support 32-bit apps without compromise. And that the next version of the software, though will still run 32-bit apps, but there would be some compromise as apps won't work as intended.

The company had already transitioned some of the underlying technology for its computers, such as the Metal graphics tool, to work only with 64-bit apps, while the processors in Mac computers are all running 64-bit.

The 64-bit technology obviously enables faster apps that can handle large amounts of data more efficiently than the 32-bit processors that's common in older computers and mobile devices, that's more reason Apple has been pushing developers to update their apps to 64-bit technology.
