Apple has begun notifying macOS users of coming 32-bit app incompatibility

Apple MacBook

"At our Worldwide Developers Conference in 2017, Apple informed developers that macOS High Sierra would be the last version of macOS to run 32-bit apps without compromise", says the support page. The company has now started warning Mac users this week that 32-bit apps support in macOS will end soon.

Goodbye, 32-bit apps: the next version of macOS will no longer support you.

For developers, the lure to update their apps to 64-bit is obvious - if Apple stops letting them run, then that's an income stream gone, right there.

High Sierra continues to support 32-bit apps, but future updates are likely to either block them or change the way they work to be less powerful, to encourage upgrading.

Starting on April 12, users will be given one notification per affected 32-bit app that the developer needs to create an update.

Further, the support page also explains to the users the advantages of using the 64-bit apps. 64-bit apps are also capable of utilizing more memory than 32-bit ones, meaning they are able to perform faster, and much more smoothly.

"The technologies that define today's Mac experience - such as Metal graphics acceleration - work only with 64-bit apps. To ensure that the apps you purchase are as advanced as the Mac you run them on, all future Mac software will eventually be required to be 64-bit", Apple said. Apple is now warning users that they should update their apps to 64-bit, because the next version of macOS will start phasing them out.

Navigate to Software/Applications in the left sidebar, then sort the list by "64-Bit (Intel)". Clicking on the former will load a support document that details the long process of shifting from 32-bit to 64-bit computing. "Using 32-bit software has no adverse effects on your data or your computer". Apple usually unveils the next major versions of its operating systems at that event, so it makes sense that Apple could provide more details then.

If you're concerned about all this and want to know exactly which apps you're running now deliver 64-bit support, the folks over at AppleMust have made a handy guide to find out. "Yes" indicates 64-bit; "No" indicates 32-bit. Presently, the App Store does not accept submissions of 32-bit apps for macOS. The A7 chip, which powered the 2013 iPhone 5S, was the first 64-bit mobile processor. Thereafter, the company made 64-bit mandatory with the iOS 11.

Keep following us to get the next update from Apple on this matter. Second, desktop apps are downloaded from several other sources apart from the MacOS App Store.
