While Apple iOS 10.3.1 served up the best possible surprise, it’s emerged that secure release looks set to be used by its successor to deliver crushing news to millions of iPhone owners.
In short: iOS 10.3.2 appears ready to cut off support for several iPhone models mid-cycle, the first time Apple has ever done this before a major version change.
The models in question are the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C.
Forbes Tech reports that the problem is both models are built on 32-bit architecture whereas iOS 10.3.2, after two beta releases, has only delivered support for 64-bit iOS devices.
No previous iOS release (beta or otherwise) has skipped support for 32-bit, unless it was a dedicated bug fix for a single device.
Apple has asked for time to look into this and discover why older iPhones have been excluded from the release.
In the meantime reports are emerging that iOS 10.3.2 betas are now being rolled out to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C.
The 10.3.2 release notes simply says it solves problems with third-party VPN apps and fixes Siri Kit car commands.
