    Last night, Apple released the third beta of iOS 10.3 , a new important version for iOS 10 . This new beta adds a new section to the Settings app for 64-bit incompatible apps, which follows an improvement of the alert message when launching a 32-bit app.


    Specifically, this new section lists all non-optimized apps for their 64-bit processor and will not work with future versions of iOS .

    This section also displays a message prompting users to contact the developer so they can update their app to ensure it continues to work with future versions of iOS.

    A user in iOS 10.3 can access this new section by going to Settings> General> Information , and pressing " Applications " to view the list of 64-bit incompatible apps.

    Pressing one of the apps listed on this page returns to the App Store page of the app so that the user can see the date of the last update and contact the developer.

    This new section adds to the alert message that appears when a user launches a 32-bit app that is not optimized for its 64-bit processor.

    All these warnings are a sign that iOS 11 could be 64 bits only, which does not bode well for some apps, and especially games that still work perfectly under iOS 10.
