[sword-devel] Older iOS devices and future PocketSword releases?

Assuming that the programmers eventually succeed in getting the 64bit version
of PocketSword compiled without errors, may I remind developers that there
are still many users who, like me, have older iOS devices that are only

We don't want to abandon PocketSword users that have older machines. It's
impossible to install a 64bit app into a 32bit device.

Some app developers therefore have two editions of each app, one for 64bit
devices and one for 32bit devices. For example, the iOS app called VPN
Unlimited from KeepSolid.

Not being an iOS app developer, I don't know if there is an alternative way
to resolve this, other than having two separate apps. 

(I've seen Windows apps that detect whether the processor is 32bit or 64bit,
and which proceed with the installation accordingly. There are further
complications in 64bit PCs, as the updater ideally needs to detect any
previous 32bit version of the program, and offer to first delete that before
installing the 64bit version.)

Please remember this as the project proceeds. Thanks.

Best regards,
