Force iPhone app to update

(John Rucker) #1

I have been waiting all morning for my iPhone to see that the SmartThings needs updated. Does anyone know of a way to force it to update?? I cant hardly wait any more.

Call AppStore support! :wink:

The new app won’t available until after 12PM PT

@slagle Ahh okay must have missed that. Freaking pacific time…

@smart Ron, I thought you were in Germany?? Heck it will be after supper by the time you get it.

Ole @pstuart and I stuck here in central time.

Are there any new controls or features we can use in our custom device types?? I’m close to submitting a custom device type in fact I have submitted it but MichaelM asked that I wait two weeks since they were busy getting Hub 2 out. I now wonder if I need to go back and update everything to take advantage of the new interface?? I knew something was coming but I didn’t know it was this big. The thing I want to do with my custom device type that I can’t today is prompt the user with a “Are you Sure” pop up after they push a button.

central time folks are always forgotten… Always have to do math when I hear a time stated.

Are we there yet :wink: It’s 15 minutes past. Seriously though it can take up to 3-4 hrs to propagate to the AppStore.

Based on PDT, isn’t it already supposed to be available as of 15 min ago? I just checked, no new app yet… someone needs to tell Apple to get it together!

Rollouts are phased. Takes time to hit all devices.

C’mon guys. It’s after 12pm Pacific. That could be 11:59pm tonight.

As an iOS dev, I can tell you now, that “dev release” at noon PDT, means that it will most likely be available after 2 or 2:30 and even then, it will be a staged rollout. Plus, when people do start downloading it they are going to slam the servers playing around with all the “new” features.

My plan? Update it Sunday after everyone else has updated and spent Saturday trying to bring down the servers.

(Patrick Stuart [@pstuart]) #12

LOL, seriously? This isn’t clash of clones… It’s a simple app to download. Replacing the existing one. If the servers can’t handle a simple rollout, there should be major concerns.

Yes, it takes a few hours to roll out to all devices.

My comment was in Jest… i know these things take time, I shall sit patiently and wait my turn :smile:

(Megan) #14

Lies and flim flam I tell you. I bet they all had a bet going on how long they could keep us on trying to update the app.

(Tim Slagle) #15

@kris won too! :wink:
