Developers of popular applications are starting to kill support for older versions of iOS. The most recent example is Asana. 

In April, Asana released a new update that effectively kills support for Apple's iOS 8 operating system. Version 5.12.0 arrived with the following message:

"The Asana app will no longer support iOS 8. And if that doesn't get you to update your iOS, then maybe the unicorn and shrug emojis (plus 150+ others) will. Otherwise you won't be able to track your work. Or accurately express yourself to your teammates."

If you use Asana, and you're currently using a device that runs iOS 8, you'll need to update to iOS 10.3.1 in order to use it. Plain and simple. 

This is just one example but it could be the start of a growing trend as we push deeper into the year, closer to the release of Apple's iOS 11 update. 

iOS 11 is expected to kill 32-bit app support entirely when it's released alongside the new iPhone later this year. 

If you've been toiling on an older version of iOS, now might be the time to make your move.
