Apple's iOS 11 update will render your favorite apps and old iPhones, iPads obsolete

There are three disappointing changes the iOS 11 upgrade will bring.

Apple announced iOS 11 at WWDC 2017, which is currently for developers to test. The public beta version of iOS 11 will be rolled out by the end of this month, while the final version will release this fall as a free update. iOS 11 definitely excited fans with the upcoming features like a smarter Siri, redesigned App Store, and even an ARKit for developers. But iOS 11 also brings forward some major shortcomings along with the update. Also Read - iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 heading to the stores soon, launch event still rumored on October 13

As seen before, some older devices will not be receiving the iOS 11 update. This year, the disappointing news is for iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPad 4th generation users. The iPhone 5 and the iPad 4th generation were launched in 2012, followed by the iPhone 5c in 2013. The reason behind Apple relieving support of these mentioned devices is because they are powered by 32-bit processors. The remaining iPhones which include the iPhone 7 series, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s series, the iPhone SE and iPhone 5s will be compatible for the iOS 11 update.

Following the same reason, the 32-bit apps on the App Store will also be cut off with the iOS 11 upgrade. Moreover, people who are currently using 32-bit apps on their iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch will not be allowed to do so, if they upgrade their OS to iOS 11. If you upgrade to iOS 11, then the existing 32-bit apps will not be available for usage. ALSO READ: Apple iOS 11 s screen capture feature could be nightmare for Snapchat users

The final fallback and a rather disappointing one would be the disability to log into third-party apps with a social media account. Tweeted by Sean Cook, co-founder of Something New, iOS 11 will disable social media accounts from being used to log into third-party apps. These social media apps in particular are Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Vimeo. Facebook and Twitter are extensively used to login to apps, thereby removing the hassle of creating a new account and having all details in place.

Apple still hasn t clarified on what it will do to compensate this change but it could introduce a different login system. Hopefully, it has something up its sleeve for an easier login process to third-party apps.

Despite the drawbacks, iOS 11 surely has interesting features coming up. The full version of iOS 11 is yet to be released with around three months left. Since this year marks the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone, Apple could surprise its users with more exciting features for iOS 11. ALSO READ: WWDC 2017: Here are the top features of iOS 11
