iOS 11 May Blow Up 180k Apps Due To "App Rot"

Apples forthcoming iOS 11 is expected to render perhaps a couple of hundred thousand apps unusable, unless they are updated to run on the 64-bit OS. These 32-bit apps are ones that have lingered in the App Store without being updated yet; they represent around 8% of the total number of apps, or over 185,000 apps.
64-bit processors were first introduced by Cupertino with the iPhone 5s, but the company only started demanding 64-bit support from developers in June of 2015.
