Apple has introduced on its creator website that it’ll need all apps posted towards the iOS App Store to aid IPv6-only systems from July 1 2016. Apple initially launched the move this past year at WWDC 2015, meaning it’d quickly turn into a necessity.
A little part of apps within the App Store will have to update their signal to aid IPv6-only systems; Apple has published related recommendations on its designer certification site. Many builders won’t be influenced since many apps don’t possess a have to make use of a custom networking collection and depend on the program networking APIs. Clearly, Apple ensures the machine frameworks are upto-day and currently support IPv6-only systems.
IPv6 is definitely an approaching network standard that’s designed to supersede IPv4, whilst the latter is operating out-of accessible source handles. Fundamentally, IPv6 may change IPv4 totally. Apple must make certain its systems are prepared prior to the engineering environment change.
July 1st can also be the cut off day for another new creator necessity: all Watch apps should make use of the indigenous watchOS 2 WatchKit APIs from June 1st.
