Remember Flappy Bird, the frustratingly popular game that was a hit a few years ago? It still exists, even though most of us have forgotten about it.
But if you’re one of those who continues to play this game, Flappy Bird cannot be played on an iOS 11-powered device. This has been confirmed by the game’s creator Dong Nguyen.
The game was launched back in May 2013 and crossed 50 million downloads by February 2014. It caused so much controversy that Nguyen decided to take the game off of the App Store later that month. Since then, iPhone users have been able to keep the game alive on their handsets even after updating their phones. Nguyen hasn’t supported the game since 2014.
Nguyen has confirmed that Flappy Bird will not be compatible with iOS 11. This is because Flappy Bird is a 32-bit app and Apple’s latest iOS has switched over to 64-bit apps. Nguyen could update Flappy Bird to 64-bit, but he’s not going to do that. If you’re a Flappy Bird fan using a device that can be updated to iOS 11, the only option that you have is to not update to the latest iOS. Sorry FB fans. Looks like it is over.
