Coming soon - iOS 7 support
Coming on the heels of Apple's introduction of iOS 7, Verivo Software is planning to offer support for Apple's latest OS with the 7.5.3 AppStudio release, coming out by the end of October. Here is what to expect from the apps already built using AppStudio Platform 7.5.2 or earlier.
Considerations related to iOS 7
With iOS 7, Apple has introduced numerous design changes, including flat UI, borderless buttons and translucent bars. Verivo has been working with beta releases and now with the Gold Master to confirm the functionality you built into your app will continue to work on iOS 7 barring few UI-related issues as outlined in the section below. We value our AppStudio customers and understand that some of these UI-related issues may be challenging as you showcase your app to your internal organization, prospects or partners. In order to unblock you and your stakeholders, Verivo will release the 7.5.3 update for AppStudio by the end of October. Verivo strongly recommends you make plans to upgrade any Verivo iOS apps as soon as the 7.5.3 release is available.

Verivo apps for iOS built using AppStudio 7.5.2 or earlier will run on supported iOS devices without requiring a new build; however there are several known issues that you may encounter on iOS 7 devices depending on the specific features utilized within your app. Below is the list of known issues with apps built using AppStudio 7.5.2 or earlier and running on iOS 7.
