Hi,

Apple has notified with below statement, so wanted to make sure it doesn't mean to restrict AIR for developing iOS apps

(https://developer.apple.com/news/index.php?id=12172013a#top)

Make Your Apps Work Seamlessly with iOS 7

December 17, 2013

Starting February 1, new apps and app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the latest version of Xcode 5 and must be optimized for iOS 7. Learn more about preparing your apps by reviewing the iOS Human Interface Guidelines.

Thanks,

Sanniv.

You do need Xcode for deploying your IPA to the App Store.

As far as the iOS7 requirement, Adobe needs to address this.

AIR 3.9 supports iOS7, but doesn't mention previous iOS targets. I can't find any precise documentation on this.

How would I target iOS 5.1.1 using the AIR 3.9 SDK? Is it even possible right now?

In Xcode you can compile apps with iOS7 and still target older iOS versions.

Adobe needs to clarfy this for us.

Don't panic. Adobe will recompile own executables using xcode5. Now they use 4.5 There is a lot of time to fix this

Seems like something happened with SDK 4.11 already, at least the keyboard looks like iOS7 now 🙂

It is AIR 3.9! I have Apache Flex SDK 4.11 and 4.10 both running on Air 3.9. But compiling with 4.11 gives the new keyboard.

Compile your any IPA with 4.10 and go to IPA (it's zip) and extract from it Info.plist file. Find there  <key>DTXcode</key> version. In latest Air SDK's the same as year ago I see <string>0450</string> - (xcode 4.5).

And also: could Adobe try to get ahead of the curve in compatibility? It feels like AIR for iOS compatibility updates always start AFTER the release of an iOS update, are you guys NOT getting all the iOS betas? I love the cross-platform idea, but with this timeframe, AIR developers can never make decent promises to their clients.

How do you target different iOS versions when you're using the AIR SDK?

I see that the latest AIR SDK supports iOS7 but what about previous versions?

Any help on clarifying this would be appreciated.

Thanks

I just found out that since Air 3.3 you can use the MinimumOSVersion key in your application.xml InfoAdditions tag like this:


<iPhone>

<InfoAdditions>

<![CDATA[<key>MinimumOSVersion</key><string>7.0</string>]]>

</InfoAdditions>

</iPhone>

While what you say is true, the package will still appear to have been published with Xcode 4.0. With later AIR it would appear as Xcode 4.6. The update in a few days from now will make it seem like Xcode 5.0. That’s the one we’ll need from now on.

In a way Apple are helping Adobe to force us to use the latest version of AIR!
