OS Updates

| News

Apple’s latest major OS updates are arriving soon, and we know some of you are trying to decide whether to install it immediately or wait a little while instead.

As always, our general advice is this: if you can deal with a few weeks of instability and occasional bugs, and you don’t rely on forScore professionally, upgrade whenever you like. Otherwise, you might want to consider holding off for a few days or weeks until things settle down. Like Apple, we extensively beta test our updates but a few issues inevitably slip through. With that said, here’s where things stand right now with our apps and each of Apple’s platforms:

iOS 15 & iPadOS 15

We’ve been working hard on our next update to forScore, version 13.0, which adds dozens of new features, has been optimized for these latest OS versions, and takes full advantage of their new capabilities. We’ll be releasing it on Monday, September 20th alongside iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. At this time, we’re not aware of any major issues with forScore 12.1 running on these OS versions, but generally speaking if you’re planning to install these system updates it’s best to update forScore as well.

Things can still change between now and Monday, but as far as we can tell there are no issues with any of our other apps running on iOS 15 or iPadOS 15, so you should feel free to upgrade whenever you’re ready.

watchOS 8

Although we just barely got our first look at the new Apple Watch Series 7, we built and tested our one and only watchOS app (Pitch, Please!) with Apple’s latest tools and device simulators and everything appears to be working beautifully. Barring any last-minute changes, it should be fully compatible with and optimized for watchOS 8.

macOS 12

Apple didn’t mention macOS this past Tuesday, which likely means their latest major update won’t be coming until next month. All of our apps are already compatible with this release or will be updated for it as soon as Apple allows us to do so.
