32-bit applications are being eliminated, ARM announces that the pure 32-bit processor, Apple, and Google have already required to turn to 64 APPs in 2022. Now Huawei also requires developers to speed up, and start elimination of 32-bit applications in February next year. To provide 64-bit version, and recommend AAB format packaging.
According to Huawei Developer Alliance, Huawei has released a notice, requiring developers to accelerate 32-bit applications, specifically divided into two phases, detail as follows:
1. From February 1, 2022, the application and game of new shelves / upgrades in Huawei application market must include 64-bit version, Huawei application market no longer receives only 32-bit applications;
2. Since September 1, 2022, Huawei application market no longer receives applications containing 32-bit version (ie, only 64-bit version).
In addition to eliminating 32-bit applications, Huawei also puts forward suggestions for the package format of the App application, as follows:
App bundle application distribution:Upload a software package in AAB format, App bundle will split AAB packet according to the CPU type of the corresponding device in the distribution phase.After packing into a corresponding APK, it makes flexible distribution and can effectively reduce the application pack volume.
Only upload 64-bit bobs: You can also upload 64-bit APK envelopes to ensure the best performance experience in the 64-bit model.
Note: 32-bit and 64-bit version can be packaged together during the transition to ensure its performance experience in different CPU architectures.
