ForeFlight Mobile 8.0.3 Available on the App Store

This minor release resolves a bug affecting low-memory devices that caused the app to periodically exit while connected to some external devices.

Apple has announced that it plans to release iOS 10 to the public on Tuesday, September 13th. We continue to conduct thorough testing on iOS 10 to ensure full compatibility with ForeFlight. Please stay tuned to our blog post, Facebook page, and Twitter feed for updates on our ‘all-clear’ notice. As always, feel free to email team@foreflight.com if you have any questions.

New Terrain Map Available for Download Ahead of ForeFlight 7.7

In preparation for ForeFlight 7.7, coming this week, we have released a new Terrain Map for download in the app. ForeFlight 7.7 includes a number of under-the-hood improvements to the ForeFlight Map Engine, which requires the new Terrain Map.

The new download replaces the old Terrain Map for ForeFlight 7.7.

The new Terrain Map is available now in More > Downloads, at the bottom of the Required Downloads section. Please make sure to download it before your first flight with ForeFlight 7.7, as it will be required in order to use the Terrain Map layer on the Maps view.

Also, don’t forget that ForeFlight 7.7 changes the minimum required iOS version from iOS 8.2 to iOS 9.2, so if you haven’t already updated your devices to at least iOS 9.2 please do so before downloading ForeFlight 7.7.

Next ForeFlight Release to Require Apple iOS 9.2 or Later

The next ForeFlight release will require Apple iOS 9.2 or later. By making iOS 9.2 the minimum iOS version supported, we can deliver advanced features, smaller app download sizes, faster performance, and improved energy efficiency. In addition, you don’t have to worry about losing support for your older devices – all the devices that support iOS 8.2 (the current minimum iOS requirement for ForeFlight) are all capable of updating to iOS 9.2.

We recommend you update as soon as practical. This support article on Apple’s website describes how to update your iOS device wirelessly or using iTunes if you want to get ahead of the release.

As always, if you have any questions, we are on frequency seven days a week at team@foreflight.com.
