Apple iOS 10.3.2 Does This Annoying Thing To Your Devices
Apple's iOS 10.3.2 has just been provided to its public beta testing group this week, and there's a nasty surprise. The software comes shortly after the release of iOS 10.3, which is a major update with new features like Find My AirPods, an Apple File System, and a minor security update. The good news is, significant users, call it "rock solid", but it could also do an annoying thing to your devices.
The latest iOS appears to be ready to cut off support for some iPhone models mid-cycle. This is the first time the company has ever done this kind of modification before a major version change. Devices like iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C are two Apple products that are affected by this surprise since they are both built on 32-bit architecture which the new iOS can't deliver support.
After two beta releases, Apple's iOS 10.3.2, can only deliver support for 64-bit iOS devices. According to Forbes , this annoying surprise is going to leave a lot of users disappointed most especially since iOS 10 is expected to release a number of significant upgrades before it is replaced by iOS 11 in September. Although Apple has never disclosed how many iPhone 5C they have sold, the number is close to over 90M units.
According to MacRumors, the company's release notes said that the iOS 10.3.2 update fixes bugs present in Sirikit car commands. Aside from that, there has been no information what other bug fixes and improvements are included. However, the update will likely focus on other bug fixes, performance issues and improvements, and security enhancements.
Outward-facing features are likely not going to be affected by Apple's iOS 10.3.2. However, the update should make all iOS device owners a little nervous. This is due to what the iOS beta send out as message to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners about its guaranteed support to a full iOS generation. The company informs users that support can in fact be cut off anytime.
