Unless their app uses the NDK, Android developers don't need to do anything special to make their apps support 64-bit CPUs. With ART, apps are distributed as portable bytecode and are compiled to native code at install time. The final compilation to assembler takes place on the end users' devices rather on the developer's computer.

The count was likely done on the fingers.
Plus what left in December, and we get 6.5 months.
That the problem with finger counting. Are we using the front edge of the finger, or the back edge?
Apple began alerting developers to the 64-bit requirement for new applications in October
Does this look right? Not that it really matters

Actually, mcarling is right.
You can't count June as the sixth month as the app updates need to be 64-bit by June 1st, not June 30th. That means the last 32-bit update could be submitted May 31st (assuming Apple accepts the upload).
With more than half of December gone, it really is 5.5 months: January (1), February (2), March (3), April (4), May (5), plus whatever's left of December.

The deadline is June 1st, which is EXACTLY 5 1/2 months from today. The method that you used to count must not be as accurate as you thought.
