Omission of 32-bit apps

 The US-based tech giant is planning to omit the support for the 32-bit apps. If you try to open a 32-bit application on the latest iOS 10.3 beta, you will notice a pop-up message which states, “the app needs to be updated. This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility.” So it is confirmed that iOS 11 will not support the 32-bit apps.
