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.

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.

Well iOS11 is now officially launched and is out of beta - just downloaded it onto my iPhone7+ and VCDS Mobile won't even startup.

When, now that making VCDS Mobile into a 64-bit App is required for it to work on iPhones that are running official released software, will VCDS Mobile be updated?

This is no longer an unofficial beta issue, VCDS Mobile is no longer usable with any iPhone running current firmware...

Sounds like you have a developer account. The GM was released, not the full build to the public. Public build is released on sept 19th.

Can you send me your UDID? We might have something to help you. ;)

Now you should feel the obligation to support IOS 11 as it’s an official release.

vCDS mobile is still unisable, and IOS 11 is no longer beta.

Just updated to the official release this morning.

Beta testers get official sw a few days earlier.

That being said, i can wait till the 19th to have vcds mobile available again.

Just downloaded the update from the iOS App Store at 9:20 A.M. PDT on September 17, 2017. It wasn't there yesterday or on Friday when I did my daily updated apps check.

Thanks for pushing the update, all seems OK.

Some info on the app for those without iOS devices (not sure why you would care :) ):

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vcds-mobile/id908922617

Pro-tip: If you click the wrench it lets you select whether to use the browser (Safari) for VCDS-Mobile. This can be handy for advanced pinching and zooming and tilting and stuff functions.

Hello,
Sorry for the double post. I just realised that it is more appropriated to put the information here.
I’m facing issues since I’ve updated to the new vcds-mobile app on app store. Before I was always using hex-net in infrasructure mode using personal hotspot from iphone and was able to acces vcds-cloud this way and work with the tool.
Now since the update, infrastructure mode works only on home rooter, but can’t get it to work on iphone. AP works on good on both home wifi rooter and iphone wifi.
I forgot to say that when in infrastructure mode the hex-net gets to connect to the iphone through personnal hotspot (the top of the iphone screen gets blue and shows that there is a connection, but the app is not seeing the hex-net.
Thank you for the assistance.
