What does iOS 7 mean for Tapped Out?

ios7-homeFirst off, if you are playing the game using an Android device, feel free to ignore this post.

At today’s press conference, Engadget learned that iOS 7 will be 64-bit. If you’re not a technophile, all of this may sound completely foreign. As of right now, all apps are 32-bit. If developers choose to, they can create 64-bit optimized apps which would take full-advantage of the new operating system’s technology.

Of course this only affects you if your Apple device will be capable of upgrading to iOS 7, which releases on September 18th. There is no guarantee that EA will make a 64-bit version of The Simpsons: Tapped Out, but if they do, it could deliver faster performance than the current build.

To reiterate, there are no guarantees any of this will happen. It is just a possibility now that iOS 7 has been revealed to be a 64-bit operating system.

  1. Keep in mind that this only applies to devices that support 64 bit software. The upcoming iPhone 5s is currently the only device that supports 64 bit software. All current devices will not run 64 bit software even when ios7 is installed. So any 64 bit version of TSTO will be quite a ways into the future.

    • The information that iOS 7 supports 64-bit apps is new.It’s nice to know that the possibility exists that down the line we could get a higher performance app, with presumably faster load times.
