Mac OS X

When users attempt to launch a 32-bit app in 10.13.4, it will still launch, but it will do so with a warning message notifying the user that the app will eventually not be compatible with the operating system unless it is updated. This follows the same approach that Apple took with iOS, which completed its sunset of 32-bit app support with iOS 11 last fall.

This is good. I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

HAS NO HARDWARE LIMITATION FROM THEIR 64BIT VERSION IS BASED ON IA64 AND EM64T, SO GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT TROLL...AND PEOPLE THUMB YOU..HOW A SHAMED YOU DON'T REASEARCH FIRST BEFORE DECIDING WHEN HE IS WRONG

AND PROVED MY POINT I AM RUNNING PURE 64BIT OS ON APPLE LATELY ON MY OLD I7 INTEL CPU...IT SHOWS 64BIT HARDWARE SUPPORT IA64 AND EM64...NO AMD64 FOR SURE..APPLE DON'T SUPPORT AMD64 CODE..OR ELSE LET HACKINTOSH TRY TO EMULATE IA64 OR EM64 ON THE KERNEL

SO ITS ONE STEP TOWARD DITCHING ROOT AND 32BIT ACCESS FROM AMD HACKINTOSH USERS..ITS ILLEGAL FOR AMD USERS
