    Does OSX 10.11 still support 32 bit applications? When will Apple drop 32 bit application support?

    Yes, OS X 10.11 does still support 32-bit apps.

    OS X 10.11 is the last to support apps that depends on the outdated garbage collector and last to support the old JAVA SDK. I suspect Carbon will be added to this list as well. This does not mean 32-bit apps though.

    OS X 10.12 is going to be interesting to see as many legacy apps will cease to work unless they change their minds.
