Monaca building iOS app yields a 32-bit app not a 64-bit



  • Hi,

    I’ve got a pure HTML app that compiles and builds successfully; however, when I load the IPA file into iTunes, on the first run iOS says that the app is 32-bit and will slow down the phone in future versions. Ideally I’d like to make the app 64-bit to avoid this but I cannot locate any assistance online or in any searches. Any assistance is appreciated!

    @vennmarketing Hi,
    Which Cordova version are you using in your project?
    For Cordova 6.2 project, the release build app is 64-bit.



  • If I am looking in the right spot in Monaca (Build, Project, Cordova Plugins) it appears I am using the 6.2 version?

    Yes, your project is using Cordova 6.2. Therefore, the release build of this project should be 64-bit. I think when you got the alert about the 32-bit and will slow down the phone in future versions, you used debug or adhoc build. Is that correct? If so, those two types of builds are 32-bit only. That’s why you get this warning.



  • Thank you for your response. You are correct in that I did use the build with the “debug”. Thank you for clearing that up.
