Windows 7: Apple making 64-bit support mandatory soon

Apple making 64-bit support mandatory soon

Your shiny new iPhone is about to get apps that work with it properly. Via the Apple Developer page, we find that starting early next year, all apps must have 64-bit support. Those apps must also be built with the latest Apple developer environment, and utilize the latest iOS SDK. It’s a push toward the future, but not one that should come as a surprise. Apple did the same thing with iOS 7, which was more a push for visual upgrades.

The deadline to update a dated app is February 1. After then, all new apps submitted to the App Store must have 64-bit support, and be built with the iOS 8 SDK. Apple advises all Developers use Xcode 6 default build settings (“Standard Architecture”). That will give a 32 and 64-bit binary.
