Pokemon go buy a new phone - Niantic halts 32-bit development

About the dropping of 32-bit support; bloody took them long enough.

Read the community standards; it's like a guide on how to not be a moron.

In the Apple world a 2 year old phone is too old to bother with, even though Apple gets so much praise for offering software updates for 5 years, on devices that are too old to bother with, but at least they get updates.

 

Most people use a device for 2 years and get a new one on a contract. Apple only support devices for so long because it allows people who can't or won't spend so much on a new device to still get into the ecosystem. As soon as the updates stop, Apple devices are worthless.

I'm certainly not an Apple fan, but I don't see how a 2 year old Apple phone would be too old to bother with. I also disagree with Apple devices being worthless when the updates stop - it generally still takes a while for app updates to not be supported anymore.

Generally holds true with Android phones more so than Apple phones. The 5S is still supported by Pokemon Go devs despite being released well past 7 years ago. The iPhone 6S will likely get iOS 14 as well.

They’re keeping the 6s alive?  Wow.

I mean why not? The A9 is a little slow by today’s standards, but it still has a usable amount of RAM. 6s was a great series. Even LTT gave it phone off the year back then, and it’s still kicking.

Makes sense.  I just looked it up.  Was released in 2015. Should have a year or two left in it if Apple keeps to how they do things.  There’s apparently one company still selling them.

The A9 was kind of the beginning of ARM compatible cores being put in the same sentence as some of the older x86 big cores. (Not faster than Intel’s cores, mind you, but something resembling an actual fight in whatever benchmarks that are cross compatible. )
