Hi Trigger peeps!
As you may or may not know Apple will be finally deprecating the old
UIWebView web view component for new app submissions in April 2020 and for app updates in December 2020.
The vast majority of our customers have already made the migration to
WKWebView by now so this is about the timeline for the final deletion of the
UIWebView support code from the Forge runtime.
We’ve been wanting to do this since the initial release of the
v2.8.x platform version last year but have obviously held off to give everyone as much time to migrate as possible.
Apple have now finally started issuing warnings for new builds that contain any references to
UIWebView support so the time is almost upon us.
In the first week of March 2020 (next week) I want to push out a new staging release which finally deletes the
UIWebView support code from the platform.
That will give everyone a month to make sure their apps aren’t affected by the change.
This may also have the side-effect of breaking things for anyone who is still on
UIWebView. If you are in that group of folk, please feel free to post any issues you’re having in this topic so we can help you get switched over ASAP!
