Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has apparently struck the right chords to support its latest tech. The iPhone maker has made it official on the company’s developer portal informing the iOS developers that all the future apps, whether new ones or updated ones, should use the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina Display of iPhone X. Apple has set July 2018 as the compliance deadline for the same.

The iPhone X received a major re-design, with the notch and end-to-end display it was evidently different from the previous models. Similarly, the apps also require some changes for a seamless transition in Apple’s latest flagship. The iOS apps must be on the same page and compatible with iPhone X’s state of the art technology. While most major apps support the requirements of iPhone X, there are still many who are not updated and show nasty black bars when used on the iPhone X. Some apps that have been slacking are – AirPort Utility, iTunes Connect, Beats Pill+, iTunes Remote, etc.

In recent years, Apple has been bullish regarding the compatibility of its apps on modern iOS versions and screen sizes. By enforcing SDK upgrades, Apple ensures that its apps remain compatible and secure. Apple will also remove any broken or outdated apps, though the company usually offers a chance to its developers to fix such issues.

Apple’s iOS 11 was released on June 5, 2017, at the company’s WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference). It was claimed to be the most advanced mobile OS, although it was in-line with the Apple’s latest technology, it has been facing issues lately. Various problems like – disabled microphone, charging and battery troubles, Siri issues, etc. – have been reported by owners. Apple has fixed most of the unexpected bugs in its latest iOS 11.3.1, but still few users were left unsatisfied with the upgrade.

Apple has aggressively pushed coders to build the apps with the latest Software Development Kit (SDK) so that the iOS apps continue to adapt with the new features and continue to match pace with the modern technology. Introduced back in September, iOS 11 SDK includes new technologies for app developers to design and develop apps that are compatible with latest iPhones and iPads. The company has spelt out some advances with the new upgrade – “Your apps can deliver more intelligent, unified, and immersive experiences with Core ML, ARKit, new camera APIs, new SiriKit domains, Apple Music integration, drag and drop for iPad, and more.”

Apple is taking the right measures to ensure the compatibility of apps with the latest iOS versions. Adding iPhone X support to the apps indicates that the upcoming lineup could have resemblance with current iPhone X design. Apple intends to bring the iPhone X’s super retina display, with a screen resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels, to future iPhone models. Seems like, the tech giant is looking forward to getting a response from its next-gen iPhone X that is no less than the tenth-anniversary edition.
