Apple prepares macOS users for discontinuation of 32-bit app support

At last year’s Worlwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC), Apple announced to Mac app developers that macOS High Sierra “will be the last macOS recover to support 32-bit apps but compromise.” Now, in the macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 beta, Apple is notifying users of the imminent change, too.

In the beta recover notes, Apple says:

To ready for a future recover of macOS in which 32-bit program will no longer run but compromise, starting in macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, a user is told on the launch of an app that depends on 32-bit software. The warning appears only once per app.

When users try to launch a 32-bit app in 10.13.4, it will still launch, but it will do so with a warning summary notifying the user that the app will eventually not be concordant with the handling complement unless it is updated. This follows the same proceed that Apple took with iOS, which finished its nightfall of 32-bit app support with iOS 11 last fall.
