Creating 64-bit iOS Apps

With Xojo 2015 Release 1, your iOS apps are now 64-bit!

As you probably heard by now, all iOS apps submitted to the App Store now must include 64-bit support. As we announced back in October (and provided an update in December), apps you create with Xojo 2015 Release 1 now meet this requirement.

Specifically, this means that apps you build for devices and for the App Store are created as “Universal Binary” bundles that contain both the 32-bit and 64-bit builds of your app. The 64-bit build is used on 64-bit devices such as iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, 6+, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2 and mini 3. Older devices, such as iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 2-4, iPad mini use the 32-bit build.

The best thing is that you don’t actually have to do anything! Just build your iOS app using Xojo 2015 Release 1 and you’ll automatically get the Universal Binary. There are no settings to tweak or code to change. Xojo handles it automatically!

If you have an iOS app that was made with Xojo in the App Store, share it in this Xojo forum conversation for fame and glory!
