With the announcement of WWDC2017, as well as apple warning users that future versions of iOS will not support 32 bit apps, and the (hopeful) upgrade to the Apple File system, it got me thinking about the next versions of macOS and iOS’s system requirements. To begin with iOS, it is easy to figure this one out. All 32 bit deviCes will be dropped. Currently, that means the iPhone 5, iPod touch fifth GEN, and the 3rd and 4th GEN iPads. So the requirements would look like this: iPhone 5S, 6/6+, 6S/6S+, 7/7+, and SE iPad Air, Air2, Pro 9.7 inch and Pro 12.9 inch iPod touch 6th GEN only This seems fair, because the iPhone 5 and the iPod touch 5 came out about 4/5 years ago, and are, of course, using outdated technology. How ever, this leaves the Mac. From 10.4 to 10.8, Apple removed support for macs that we're getting up there in age. How ever, from 10.8 to 10.11, apple did not change anything about its system requirements. 10.12 removed support for some 2007, 2008, and 2009 machines. Because of the introduction of a new file system, I believe that Apple will Drop even more computers this time. My theory is that Apple will drop support for computers without thunderbolt ports. This would also mean that all Macs with the outdated Core 2 Duo processors would be dropped as well. This would mean that all of the white MacBooks would lose support, all iMacs from 2009 and 2010 would lose support, all MacBook Pros from 2010 would lose support, All Mac Minis from 2010 would lose support, all MacBook Airs from 2010 would lose support, and lastly, and most unfortunately, all Mac Pros with out the new round design would lose support. That would mean that the system requirements looked like this: MacBook Pro (early 2011 and later iMac, (mid 2011 and later) MacBook Air, (mid 2011 and later Mac mini, (mid 2011 and later Mac Pro, (late 2013 and later It's unfortunate, but this is the most logical list of devices I could come up with. The reason for all the Macs removal is because Apple is updating the file system, and that means all the Systems files will be updated. If this list is correct, that means that there would be removals of files and drivers for 9 different Mac models, with tones of different configurations and many older processors for different screen sizes, etc etc. This would mean that there would be a lot more free space available because old files would be removed, witch would equal a faster system. The same can be said about the removal of 32 bit devices on the iOS side. All the old device files would be removed from the OS, all the 32 bit apps would be removed, leaving the OS 64 bit only, witch means more storage and faster systems. Do you agree with me?
