With the official release of Visual Studio 15.9, the Microsoft Store is now officially accepting submissions for apps built for the ARM64 architecture.
Developers now have the officially supported SDK and tools for creating 64-bit ARM (ARM64) apps. Developers can use Visual Studio 15.9 today to recompile apps – both UWP and C++ Win32 – to run natively on Windows 10 on ARM devices.
Running natively allows applications to take full advantage of the processing power and capabilities of Windows 10 on ARM devices, rather than being limited to 32-bit apps running at emulation speed.
Recompiling to ARM64 is as easy as selecting it as a solution platform to compile to.
