Apple kills 32 bit devices with the latest iOS 10.3.2 beta, no longer offering support for the iPhone 5, 5c or iPad 4th generation
It appears that with the release of the latest iOS 10.3.2 beta which rolled out on Tuesday, Apple has stuck the nail in the coffin of their last standing 32 bit devices, with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPad 4th generation now noticeably not showing on Apple’s list of supported devices.
Apple’s iOS 10.3.2 beta is currently available exclusively for registered developers and a public beta release is expected to be rolled out later this week. The release notes for the beta of 10.3.2 are rather vague, with Apple describing the update as one which “contains bug fixes and improvements.”
It’s strange of Apple to kill off the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPad 4th generation within an update to iOS 10.3, especially with WWDC and iOS 11 on the horizon. – On Monday Apple released iOS 10.3 to the public, adding new features such as a Find My AirPods tool to help locate missing AirPods similar to the standalone Finder for AirPods application which was recently pulled from the App Store as well as enhancements to Siri, updates to the Weather, Maps and Podcast app as well as much more.
