Apple plans to stop support for 32-bit apps

Post by bchuter » Mon Jan 29, 2018 4:12 pm

I only just found out / read that Apple are planning to stop all support for 32-bit apps after the next update.

https://www.macobserver.com/tips/how-to ... -bit-apps/

I almost panicked as i was not sure if Nimble was 64-bit or not.
However after following the instructions in the link above i established that Nimble is 64-bit.....YAY!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Could not imagine a world without Nimble Commander on the Mac!!!

Now to kick a fire under some of my other Mac app providers butt's to move to 64-bit soon!
namely my Synology NAS apps..... eeeek !

Nah, it has been targeting 64-bits architecture from the day 1.
I honestly don't know who in sane mind will still publish 32-bits software for desktop computing nowadays.

Honestly, I think this is a good move by Apple. I cringe so hard when I see a 32-bit app coming out in the present day. lol
