In the coming weeks, we will be updating the Sinch iOS SDK to add Bitcode support. This means we will be removing support for ARM7s and i386.
This change comes alongside an number of other changes from Apple in their app thinning process.
This optimization, called app thinning, lets you create apps that use the most device features, occupy minimum disk space, and accommodate future updates that can be applied by Apple. Faster downloads and more space for other apps and content provides a better user experience.
By doing this, it allows Apple to use certain calculations to re-optimize apps further and downsize executable sizes. You can read more info here.
We do not expect this to have much of an impact for our developer network. Arm7s is an optimization of Arm7 for iPhone 5 only and it still works with Arm7 target. You can see the full breakdown of supported features in this iOS Support Matrix.
We will update the SDK in the coming weeks, and if you have any questions or issues, please contact the support team.
