Dear BIM 360 Field administrators:
We are writing to let you know about some important changes to our iPad support.
At Autodesk, we are always improving our products to take advantage of the latest technologies. As part of this effort, we will end support for iOS 6 soon, focusing future efforts on improved frameworks available in iOS 8. These frameworks will help us to make BIM 360 Field faster, more reliable, and easier to use as we develop future versions.
This change will take effect in the next month or so when we release BIM 360 Field for iPad version 4.8. Fortunately, all iPads except for the original iPad 1 support iOS 8.
If you are using iPad 1, you will not be able to update to version 4.8. We recommend that you update to BIM 360 Field for iPad to the latest version 4.7.x available. Version 4.7.x will continue to work after we release version 4.8, but you will not be able to use new features introduced in version 4.8 or later.
If you are using iPad 2 or later, update to iOS 8 as soon as possible so you can continue to update to the latest versions of BIM 360 Field for iPad as they become available.
BIM 360 Support is always available to answer any questions you may have about this change. We appreciate your business and look forward to working with you to support your teams through this transition.
The Autodesk BIM 360 Field team
