Should I Update?

| news

Later today, Apple is expected to release iOS 10. As with any notable iOS update, we’ve started to get questions from customers about whether or not they should install it. The short answer is: if you have a recent, complete manual backup of your library and you don’t depend on forScore professionally, then go ahead and update.

The longer answer is that iOS 10 is a brand new operating system, and the version released later today will be slightly different from any version we’ve tested since the first beta back in June. There’s always a chance that something can go wrong, even though at this point we have no evidence of issues with either the current version of forScore (10.0.4) or the next update (10.1) that’s due for release later today.

Perhaps better questions to ask are these: is there anything in iOS 10 that I need or want to try today, and could I live without forScore and my iPad for a few days? If not, wait a week and let us and others kick the tires before you jump in.
