Microsoft and Qualcomm will kill 32-bit apps in Windows and Android.
News on May 25th, Arm32 APP or 32-bit mobile applications are about to encounter the darkest moment.
At the Microsoft Build 2023 conference, a technical document showed that future versions of Windows 11 and the next generation of Windows will no longer support 32bit ARM programs.
A potential background here may be that Qualcomm’s self-developed Oryon CPU based on the ARM instruction set will no longer support 32-bit.
According to the news, Oryon CPU will be used as the big core of Snapdragon 8 Gen4 and widely used in Windows on ARM notebooks.
In other words, both Windows 12 and Snapdragon 8 Gen4 will completely abandon 32-bit, and perhaps Snapdragon 8 Gen3 in the second half of the year will take the lead in cutting off 32-bit.
In fact, as early as 2015, Apple announced that iOS applications must support 64-bit, and then officially cut off 32-bit applications on iOS 11. On the Android side, Xiaomi issued a notice not long ago, requiring developers to no longer allow 32-bit apps to be launched and updated on the Xiaomi App Store starting from May 8, 2023.
From July 1, 2023, in mainstream app stores such as OPPO, vivo, and Xiaomi, apps that only support 32-bit will be gradually removed.
