Converting to 5.0 MiBs

So how do we go about converting our 4.4 MiBs? Is it as simple as opening each indesign file, changing the MiB version to 5.0 and resaving?

Cheers

Hello Richard,

That's correct, but you really only need to update your MIBs to 5.0 if you are going to implement any 5.0 features or if you are having any problems with particular features that may have been resolved with our latest plugin.

Would I also be right in assuming that if the app is updated to 5.0 then previous version MIB files would still work? Lets say we have a version 5.0 app that includes both 4.4 MIBs and 5.0 MIBS - would the 4.4s still be viewable?

 

Cheers

So let me get this straight. If we built it in 4.4 and submit it now it will work and Apple would consider it to be an IOS7 compatible App?

Hey Nazim, I've taken this from a Mag+ email, this should answer your question:

If you currently have a live Mag+ app but you have not submitted an update since Nov 19, 2013, we strongly recommend you build and submit an app update prior to January 29, 2014. This will take your app to v4.4, the last Mag+ version that will run on iOS5.1.1 and later. After Feb 1, Apple will not accept a Mag+ 4.4 or earlier app build. (If you have submitted a 4.4 app prior to Feb 1, but it has not been approved by Feb 1, Apple will still approve it. You just can’t submit a 4.4 app after Feb 1.) There are critical bug fixes in v4.4, so building and submitting an update now will ensure that all your non-iOS7 customers have the latest code version.

Here is a tutorial < http://support.magplus.com/entries/22040938-Upgrade-Your-iOS-App>  on updating your iOS app.

 

- If you are about to launch an app for the first time, we recommend if at all possible you build and submit a Mag+ v4.4 app prior to Feb 1, 2014, then build and submit a 5.0 update after Feb 1. This will allow you to serve as many customers as possible with your app. If your app is only 5.0 or later, anyone not on iOS7 will not be able to install and use it.

- We also recommend continuing to produce 4.4 MIBs for a couple of months, until a number of your iOS5 and iOS6 users have upgraded to iOS7. Using either Flurry (under Technical > Firmware versions) or Localytics (under Usage > OS version) analytics, you can see what OS your users are using.
