Should I delete all 32 bit games after iOS 10.1

Man I got
Xcom
Stranger wrath
Dead effect 2
Wild blood
And many more that I install randomly to replay.
Is it actually killing your device?
The apps actually slow down ( extreme) when using other 64 bit apps.
App zap freeze for a couple of seconds when I am using the Appstore.
I am having a really bad day and then this.
I worked with my iPad.
I have to update it for security reason, and I mostly game despite the fact that I own a couple of PC games.
I am asking myself if it is worth buying premium game in the iOS AppStore?

I wouldn't delete them just yet.

Hold out for a bit and hope your games get optimized for 10.1

They should as 64 bit became a requirement for everything on the AppStore in 2015?

If they don't optimize, then that means they've probably given up on the game, then delete.

Not really. As Eli recently explained, the system message is just a poorly worded way to let you know you are running a 32 bit app -- it sounds a lot scarier than what it actually is.

After your post I got a Stranger' Wrarth game going without issues.
