Apple is getting ready to roll out a new iPhone and its next OS, but in the process it could kill 187,000 apps.

Analytics firm Sensor Tower anticipates that thousands of 32-bit apps will become obsolete once Apple releases iOS 11, which is expected to only support apps that run on a 64-bit processor.

A quick refresher: After years of encouraging developers to update older apps to make them compatible with the 64-bit processors that debuted with the iPhone 5S, it seems that Apple will begin to force developers’ hands with iOS 11. Warnings that “this app will not work with future versions of iOS” began appearing in beta versions of iOS earlier this year, feeding speculation that Apple will finally end support for these outdated apps once and for all.

While we knew that “app rot” as it’s known in developer circles is a real problem, it was hard to quantify just how many apps could be impacted by such a change. We now have a much clearer idea thanks to new data from Sensor Tower.

As it stands now, at least 8 percent of all apps in the App Store could be rendered obsolete overnight if Apple chooses to end support for 32-bit apps. That adds up to about 187,000 apps, according to the firm.

This, by the way, is somewhat of a conservative estimate. Sensor Tower came up with the number by looking for apps that were submitted prior to the launch of the iPhone 5S in 2013 (when Apple first started supporting 64-bit) that haven’t been updated since.

 

Apple could kill almost 200,000 apps

 

Though the company introduced 64-but chipsets in September 2013, Apple didn’t start requiring developers to support 64-bit architecture until nearly two years later in June of 2015, so it’s likely there are far more incompatible apps than the number reflected in Sensor Tower’s report.

And while the vast majority of these apps won’t be missed, there are quite a few classics — some of which still enjoy devoted followings — from the early days of the App Store that could be at risk should Apple force them to update or die.

Of course, we won’t know the fate of these apps for awhile longer. Apple has yet to comment on iOS 11, and probably won’t ahead of its formal unveiling at WWDC later this year. And while beta software is a good indication of changes to come, nothing is certain until the updates become official.

Still, there are other signs Apple is ready to start ditching old outdated apps. The company removed more than 47,000 apps last fall, according to Sensor Tower, so further clamping down on languishing apps wouldn’t be surprising at all.

Apple today released the second official update to the iOS 10 operating system, nearly one month after releasing iOS 10.0.2 and a month and a half after providing the new iOS 10 operating system to the public. iOS 10.0.3 comes ahead of iOS 10.1, a more significant update that brings a Portrait mode depth-of-field effect to the iPhone 7 Plus.

iOS 10.0.3 can be downloaded as an over-the-air update on all iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices.

It’s unclear exactly what the issue was. But iPhone 7 owners began complaining late last month and well into October about the device randomly dropping its LTE signal or showing a “No Service” icon when attempting to use Google Maps or Waze. This appears to be an issue mainly with how the phone interacted with Verizon’s network, and some users have theorized that it had to do with how the telecom handles transmitting voice and cellular data simultaneously. So toggling the “Enable LTE” function to “Data Only” in the settings panel seemed to temporarily solve the issue,

With this update, Apple has issued an official fix. So if you’re an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus user who’s experienced wonky cell

Many iPhone users were affected by “Error 53”.  Apple now has released a new software update designed to restore iPhones affected by Error 53, a bug encountered when customers had their handsets repaired by non-Apple technicians. iOS 9.2.1 is the same version number released last month, but the updated build from 13D15 to 13D20 reflects the resolution for bricked iPhones.

Fortunately, Apple AAPL -1.92% issued a patch (known as build number 13D20) to its most current mobile operating system — iOS 9.2.1 — today for iPhone users that are dealing with the Error 53 issue. This is not actually a brand new version of the already existing iOS 9.2.1 so you will not see it appear as a Software Update under Settings. But the patch will restore “bricked” iPhones when those handsets are plugged into iTunes. And the patch will also prevent iPhones from becoming “bricked” if it is repaired by non-official technicians in the future. This patch will likely be included when iOS 9.3 is rolled out to the public within the next couple of weeks.

If a non-Apple repairer replaced the button on a damaged iPhone or iPad, a subsequent update of the operating system detected a non-standard component and shut down the device. There was no way to restart it.

Apple recently released a new support page that addresses Error 53. If your device has the Error 53 issue, then you can restore your device by following some easy steps:-

Step 1.) Install the latest version of iTunes

Step 2.) Unplug any iOS devices from your computer.

Step 3.) Ensure you are running the most recent version of iTunes.

Step 4.) Force restart your device (Hold down the Home button and Power button for 30 seconds)

Step 5.) Attempt to restore your device again through iTunes

Step 6.) Contact Apple support if the device restoration does not work

A simple code can allow seeing hidden information your iPhone, as well as giving you permission to make changes to its private settings.

The iPhone’s Field Mode is a largely hidden but useful tool that allows you to see extra information about how your phone is connected to the internet.

The tool is enabled by dialing *3001#12345#* and then pressing the call button. Your phone will switch away onto a grey screen, after which you’ll see the extra information.

One of the most useful features is a more detailed signal strength indicator which should appear in the top-left hand corner.

Anything above -80 is roughly equivalent with full bars on the normal scale. Anything below -110 would be one or no bars and you are unlikely to be able to easily make a phone call.

In practice, the maximum strength ever achieved is around -40. No reception at all is around -120, though it goes all the way to -140.

If you want to keep that number in the corner, rather than the usual dots, then hold down the power button. The message to turn the phone off will appear, and then press the home button.

The feature should then be enabled. Users can switch between the two ways of viewing the signal by pressing on where they display, in the top-left hand corner.

There are a range of other codes that offer other information.

Using *#33# will show the status of your call barring settings. That tool can be turned on and off using *33*pin# and #33&pin#. Swap PIN for your sim PIN.

Using *#43# will tell you whether or not call waiting is turned on. That feature allows people to queue up when they ring you, so that the phone can alert you if someone is trying to get through while you’re already on a call.

It can be turned on using *43# and turned off again with #43#

*#06# will show up your IMEI identifier number. That’s very useful because it can be used to shut down your phone remotely if it stolen, but it can also be accessed from the Settings app or on the phone’s box.
