Some of Your Apps Might Not Work with iOS 11

Some of Your Apps Might Not Work with iOS 11

If you've owned your iPad for awhile you might have a ton of apps installed. Unfortunately, some of those apps might not work once you move from iOS 10 to iOS 11. 

iOS 11 brings an end to iOS support for 32-bit applications. Apps that haven’t been updated to support 64-bit will no longer work on your iPad once you install the new operating system. 

Most apps will work with iOS 11, but there are some, like Flappy Bird, that will no longer operate once you move to the new operating system. If you play a lot of old games on your iPad, beware. 

Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to get them to work. They require an update from the developer and in many cases (Flappy Bird), the developer's probably not supporting the app. 

If you want to look at what apps no longer work with iOS 11 open your Settings app and tap on General, About. After that, tap Applications.

    I see nothing about the possibility of losing all your contacts when you upgrade to 11.1. It happened to me on my iPad and to my husband on his iPhone which is a HUGE problem.

    Been pretty OK on my iPhone SE and iPad 2017. Not that I have not begun to experience the upgrade rot that eventually tends to make every Apple IOS device begin to slow or lag from time to time. Actually I doubt that another iPad upgrade is in my future and having the Pencil option for a feature doesn’t impress me at all. Personally, I would have rather had a Apple keyboard that worked with the new iPad. I use a Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard and frankly its junk and typing is clunky. But to have to buy a iPad Pro just to get a solid keyboard from Apple isn’t going to happen for myself. IOS 11 has been OK, but nothing I felt really benefitted me.
