    Apple is dropping 32-bit support in iOS 11 only 64-bit devices will be updated. I want to fully eliminate and dependency on 32-bit Apps I might have and delete them. How can we tell if an App is 32-bit and might currently be on our iPad Pros ?

    Settings/General/About/Applications - see list of old apps under the "App Compatibility" heading. Delete those.

    What is the benefit to doing so? Do they slow down your phone even when not in use?

    No mostly they are not efficient or safe and create a security risk. Trying to protect company, privilege information and can have anything that Apple doesn't support. It's a liability that,needs to be avoided

    Plus IMO speculation only 32-bit Apps drain resources

    I have a few: old heart rate monitor, an astronomy app, my first ebook collection, an SSH client, a headphone audio processor, and a very pretty tech demo called 'Zen Garden' (based on unreal 4).

    It seems to me based on this post that you are asking in the corporate IT context rather than as an individual or home use context.

    If this is indeed the case, I am now wondering why is your company rushing to update to iOS 11? Shouldn't you be waiting for more kinks, early adopter issues and bugs to be resolved first before updating?
