    Vcds mobile and ios 11

    Hi,
    This is for Uwe.

    When do you think an update for vcds mobile will be available for ios11 (iphone/ipad)?
    As soon as an I device updates to ios11 vcds mobile will no longer run.

    A temporary workaround is to use the browser (by entering the interface's IP address) and not the actual VCDS-Mobile app/launcher. Though I agree, this should be addressed as soon as possible now that Apple opened the iOS 11 Beta program to end users and the actual release is around the corner.

    I know that you can use the browser,
    But you have to look for the ip every time.

    A fully blown app like vcds on pc would be nice.

    See also this thread I posted earlier http://forums.ross-tech.com/showthre...App-amp-iOS-11

    iOS 10.3.3 includes a tool to check Apps that are 32-bit and will not work under iOS11.

    P.S. I'm running the iOS11 beta on a spare iPhone 6+, doesn't look very different to iOS10.3.3 beta at the moment...

    I'm running IOS 11 Beta on both my iphone and ipad.

    Anyone know when the IOS app is going to be updated?

    I thinks it's about time that IOS 11 was supported, esp considering that in a Month or so apple will roll updates out to the general public.

    VCDS is the only App I have that does not yet support IOS 11.

    I have 4 Apps that are still 32-bit on my iPhone7+:

    1) VCDS Mobile
    2) GoPoint BT1
    3) CamerAlert - speed camera alert App using the PocketGPSWorld database
    4) UtiklityHelpUK - contact details for UK utility companies

    I'm gonna tell you the same thing I've told people running Beta versions of Windows for many years: We feel NO obligation to support an OS prior to its actual RELEASE.

    I guess all we're looking for is a commitment to support iOS 11 when it is released, principally by committing to rebuilding VCDS mobile as a 64-bit App.

    BTW rebuilding VCDS Mobile from 32-bit to 64-bit WON'T make it incompatible with the current iOS10 (or iOS9 or iOS8 or...), so surely there's no harm in updating VCDS Mobile ahead of the release of iOS11?

    Yes, it's on the To-Do list.

    Even though you feel no obligation to support Beta OS releases, it would make alot of sense to work on and release updates that support such beta OS releases, so-as to give you ample time to sort out any bugs or issues that might arise before the official release is due.
    Anyone who does any amount of SW development knows what a PITA sw bugs can be for the dev to sort out.
