Apple Asks Developers To Update Their Apps With 64-bit Support Until June

Apple sent out an email to registered iOS developers on Wednesday, reminding them that beginning February 1, 2015, new apps submitted to the App Store will have to feature 64-bit support and be built on the iOS 8 software development kit.

Furthermore, Apple says that beginning June 1, 2015, existing apps on the App Store will need to be updated by developers with 64-bit support and be built with the iOS 8 SDK, or they’ll be suspended from the App Store.

Apple brought 64-bit support to the iPhone 5s in 2013, and of course extended it to the iPad, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 5c is the only current device in Apple’s lineup to not see the performance benefit of a 64-bit chip architecture.
