Forge Platform v2.9

It looks like Apple pushed iOS 14 straight to production last night without giving us the customary 1-2 weeks with a GM release first.

It’s a bit earlier than I wanted but now I might as well officially announce the Forge v2.9 Beta today.

You can find the release notes for the latest Beta versions of Forge v2.9 here:

I’ve also started working on the migration guide which you can find here:

Known issues with the release can be found here:

When reporting issues, please include:

  • Your application’s src/config.json and src/identity.json files.
  • Your host operating system. (e.g. macOS, Windows)
  • Details of the hardware you are testing on. (e.g. iPhone XR, Pixel 3)
  • Which version of Android/iOS you are testing on (e.g. Android “Pie”, iOS 12)
  • Any log output leading up to your issue. (e.g. output from the forge command, the contents of forge-error.log and/or any relevant output from adb logcat )
  • Any sample code we can use to replicate the error.

Is it possible to submit an update compiled with 2.8.6 tonight ? Or do we absolutely need to use 2.9 ?


As far as I understand things there is no requirement this year that your app be compiled against the very latest Xcode (12.0).

This means you should be okay to go with something compiled against v2.8.6 if it hasn’t gotten any glaring bugs when run on an iOS 14 device.

Please share your experiences! I think we’re all interested in Apple’s position given they decided not to give developers any time to test against the final iOS 14 release this year!
