Furthermore, it stopped accepting 32-bit apps to the App Store. Apple also mentions that macOS High Sierra will be the last version of macOS that'll support 32-bit apps "without compromise". The notification will be seen in the first instance of opening an app that's only compatible with 32-bit in macOS High Sierra 10.13.4. Apple included a similar alert dialogue on 32-bit iOS apps with iOS 10.3 before requiring 64-bit support to launch on iOS 11 past year. Aside from the absence of support for 32-bit apps, the new Mac operating system is said to come with performance improvements, bug fixes and new features.

With the new alert dialogue in macOS 10.13.4 going live, Apple is now informing customers about the upcoming requirement for 64-bit apps sometime in the future as well. Like, the 64-bit architecture enables taking advantage of more memory than its 32-bit counterpart. For business users, the Blue Jeans and Cisco WebEx teleconferencing clients are still only available as 32-bit apps. If you distribute your apps outside the Mac App Store, we highly recommend distributing 64-bit binaries to make sure your users can continue to run your apps on future versions of macOS. "No" means the app is 32-bit and needs to be updated, while "Yes" means it is 64-bit and will work just fine without further action from the developer. "To ensure that the apps you purchase are as advanced as the Mac you run them on, all future Mac software will eventually be required to be 64-bit", Apple continued.

Start by navigating to the Apple logo in the top-left corner of the screen, clicking on it, and selecting "About This Mac". Scroll to Software, select Applications, and then check the 64-bit field.
