Apple asks developers to optimize applications for iPhone 5s




Closer to the official start of sales of iPhone 5s and exit 7 Apple iOS developers turned to send a request for approval to the App Store applications that are compatible with the new 64-bit processor A7. According to the tech giant, it is necessary to do for the fastest program on the iPhone 5s, new chip, which has once again improved the performance of the device.

Xcode tool for creating iOS-app now allows you to create both 32-bit and 64-bit applications – the latter will only work with iOS 7 . According to 9to5Mac, if developers want to keep support for the previous version of the mobile operating system, they will need to create a separate 32-bit version of their product for iOS 6.

The following month, Apple promises to give developers the ability to create generic versions of the applications, so the procedure of optimization of programs on 64-bit processor will run much faster. Nevertheless, at the presentation of the new iPhone on September 10, representatives from the studio Epic Games, which is engaged in a series of games Infinity Blade, said that even now on the conversion takes no more than two hours.

At the September event, Apple Phil Schiller emphasized the importance of a 64-bit processor A7 for iPhone 5s. It has enhanced the performance of the smartphone in half compared to the iPhone 5 (seemingly much faster). However, if the game developers will ignore the request of the company, 5s users will not be able to feel all of its superiority over its predecessor.

By the way, recently became aware of the fact that soon in the Apple app store will be a function of loading the old version of the application that is compatible with previous smartphones corporations who can not upgrade to the latest iOS. For example, if you want to download this or that program from the App Store on your iPhone 3G, store automatically prompt you to download it to the previous version of iOS 4.

It is likely that Apple will soon equip the 64-bit processors all iOS-devices, at least the beginning of this transition is already laid. Another question – to rebuild an entire ecosystem and the adaptation of the software will take time. And as long as it is.
