With the rollout of iOS 11 affecting a substantial proportion of our userbase, we’ve run full regression passes on our apps to ensure that everything will continue to work as expected. Fortunately, it appears Apple have largely lived up to their promise of making each iOS upgrade fully backwards compatible and we're happy to report that your apps should continue running smoothly. We have, however, made a couple of non-critical changes to minimize the chances of any disruption.
We’ve replaced our existing app ratings system with Apple’s proprietary one, this ensures it will be supported going forwards and will adhere to Apple’s increasingly strict guidance about how apps can prompt users to rate the app. We’ve also updated our push notification tech, details of which will be available in the 1.15 release notes.
From a UI perspective, little has changed that would affect the appearance of our apps. We do, however, recommend disabling the new drag and drop functionality on iPad as it can interfere with some of our existing interactions. Depending on how your content is set up, this might be something you need to do, or it's our responsibility. Generally speaking, if you’re using a custom Publish integration you’ll need to make the change on your side. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re uncertain.
Furthermore, we’ve tested our apps to see how they’ll appear on the iPhone X. This, as expected, raised a few issues with how our interface will adapt to the camera notch and rounded corners. We're dedicating development time to identifying and rectifying these issues (none of which are critical or notably impede use of the app) and hope to have an iPhone X-proof version of Publish available in the near future.
