    Hi,

    I just received the following message from Apple :

    Dear Developer,
    As we announced in October, beginning February 1, 2015 new iOS apps submitted to the App Store must include 64-bit support and be built with the iOS 8 SDK. Beginning June 1, 2015 app updates will also need to follow the same requirements. To enable 64-bit in your project, we recommend using the default Xcode build setting of “Standard architectures” to build a single binary with both 32-bit and 64-bit code.

    Is this ok with builds generated with Appbuilder ?

    Thanks & regards

    Hi Cedric,

    We are currently working on providing 64bit support for our cloud build service. We are planing on releasing it in January 2015. You can check our official statement here.

    What you can do on your side on order to be 64bit ready:
    • Make sure you are using a newer version of Cordova: 3.5 or above.
    • Make sure the custom plugins you are using have the 64bit support.

    Hope this helps.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    Hi Michael,

    The 64 bit support was released with the AppBuilder 2.7.1 release. For more information, I would suggest you checking this blog post. I hope it helps.

    Hi There,

    Hi Jialiu,

    Unfortunately, I am not aware of a way to check this on a Windows machine. However, if you have access to a Mac, you can check the steps provided here for more details about the procedure.

    Further, since the AppBuilder 2.7.1 release, every iOS application produced in AppBuilder and targeting Cordova 3.5 or 3.7 is 64bit compliant.

    I hope this helps.
