Apple announced today to developers new iOS 11 updates must support the company’s iPhone X by this summer.
The news was shared on Apple’s developer website, which explained “Starting July 2018, all iOS app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina display of iPhone X.”
Apple says “iOS 11 delivers innovative features and the redesigned App Store to hundreds of millions of customers around the world. Your apps can deliver more intelligent, unified, and immersive experiences with Core ML, ARKit, new camera APIs, new SiriKit domains, Apple Music integration, drag and drop for iPad, and more.”
Last fall, when iPhone X was released, Apple similarly encouraged developers to update their apps for iPhone X, but now the requirement is in place with a set deadline.
If you’ve been waiting for your apps to get updated for iPhone X already, the next update by July will support your smartphone. #saygoodbyetoblackbars
