My experience: it does nothing when there's no 32-bit apps installed. I downloaded TouchArcade's because I know it's not supported, and it turned out that TA's app was the only non-supported app I have installed.

I did touch 'application' but nothing happens..there's no 'link' to go anywhere else.

I've got the X-com game installed and I'm sure the talk is that's not 64bit...not according to comments from buyers on the App Store.

Oh well, I'll just have to wait and see...as long as my Broken Sword games continue to work !

The developer of Finding Teddy 'liked' my tweet. Not sure if that constitutes as coming to 64-bit or not, but a nice acknowledgment that the message has been seen.

Has anyone heard what percentage of the App Store will be lost? Just curious if it's over 50%.

That means you don't have any 32 bit apps.

Or your not on the latest iOS. It won't do that on 10.0

10.3.2 will identify the 32 bit apps. iOS 11 won't let you install them.

If one has an Air/Air2, iOS 9.x, and they don't upgrade iOS to 10 or 11, would 32 bit games still work?

I'd think they would, but any clarification would be sincerely appreciated.

Obviously once a new device is purchased by someone this autumn, 32 bit games would not work as well as have the ability to be installed.

Is the above pretty much correct?

That's all correct. 32 bit apps work in iOS 10 as well. It's only iOS 11 when they'll stop working.
