Forge support for iOS9 and OSX “El Capitan” is ready! Forge is ready for iOS9 and OSX El Capitan

If you caught last night’s Apple event you’ll know Apple have finally pushed the GM releases for Xcode 7, iOS 9 and OSX El Capitan.

The GM release is what Apple will be shipping to the general public in a week’s time so, if you haven’t been following along during the Beta-test phase, now is the time to make sure your app is ready for iOS 9.

We’ve been working towards this moment since the initial announcement in June and are pleased as punch to announce that supports iOS9 and OSX El Capitan as of platform version v2.2.16.

To get your app running on iOS 9 all you’ll need to do is take the following steps:

1. Upgrade your Xcode to version 7

You can grab the GM seed from the Xcode Developer Center or, if you don’t mind waiting a week, download the update from the App Store.

2. Update your iOS device to iOS 9 (Optional)

If you don’t want to wait till next week, you can head over to the iOS Developer Center and grab the install image.

We also support the new iOS 9 simulator in Xcode 7 so this step is not necessary if you want to hold off on upgrading your hardware immediately.

3. Update your app to platform version v2.2.16

To update your app to the latest platform version open up the Toolkit, navigate to your app config and click on the Change version button:

Toolkit App Config

In the popup dialog, simply click the Switch to v2.2.16 button:

Toolkit App Version

That’s it!


Sometimes there are minor teething issues with GM releases as Apple often adds a bunch of new stuff that wasn’t present in the betas. So please, if you run into any problems or have questions, don’t hesitate to let us know at and we’ll be all over it!

Important note for Ionic/Angular users:

We’ve heard reports that UIWebView for iOS 9 introduced a breaking change that can cause issues for apps that rely on the semantics of window.location.

If your app uses the Angular $location service you can find a patch and more information here:
