iOS 8 iconAs a reminder to developer, Apple published on its developer portal today that starting June 1, 2015, all app updates submitted to the App Store will have to include 64-bit support and be built with the iOS 8 SDK. While the move probably won’t affect active developers who are already in compliance, smaller developer who haven’t updated their apps for iOS 8 or 64-bit devices yet will have some catching up to do, and it’s only good for us users.

As a reminder, beginning June 1, 2015 app updates submitted to the App Store must include 64-bit support and be built with the iOS 8 SDK. To enable 64-bit in your project, we recommend using the default Xcode build setting of “Standard architectures” to build a single binary with both 32-bit and 64-bit code. For more information, read the 64-Bit Transition Guide for Cocoa Touch.

      Probably will in 2016. I think at some point they required iPhone 5 support for new app submissions/updates. They just give developers ample time. 64-bit has been out for nearly 2 years now.
