Dropping SDK iOS 12 Support

Upcoming change regarding our SDK's support for iOS 12

Dear Valued Customer,


We hope this message finds you well. We are reaching out today to inform you about an upcoming change regarding our SDK’s support for iOS 12. Starting from version 1.11.0, we will no longer support iOS 12 in our SDK. This release is scheduled to take place with our end of June 2023 release.


The decision to drop iOS 12 is driven by our internal metrics. Only 0.1% of our SDK users are still using iOS 12 devices.


Benefits for dropping iOS 12:

  1. Improved performance: By focusing our efforts on newer iOS versions, our developers can utilize the more modern technologies provided by the iOS operating systems. This will allow smoother performance, faster load times, and an overall better user experience.

  2. New features: With the removal of the iOS 12 support, we can take advantage of the latest features and capabilities offered by newer iOS versions. This allows us to build more engaging functionalities to offer our customers.


If you wish to continue to support iOS 12 , there is some overhead for your app developer to implement. We will provide instructions in the development documentation after release.


We understand that this change can affect your apps, and we are here to assist you throughout this process. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our customer success team.


Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We are committed to delivering the best possible mobile experience to our customers, and this change will play a significant role in achieving that goal.
