We do our best to make sure WineDirect runs smoothly without bugs for every iOS/iPadOS update, which usually happens once a year.
We can’t foresee all potential issues however, so it’s our policy to ask that you wait to upgrade the iOS/iPadOS on your Apple products running WineDirect until we give you the all clear. By waiting until we’ve worked out the kinks, upgrades will come without headaches, and you can simply enjoy all the cool benefits that Apple’s enhancements bring with each release.
How will you know when we have everything tested on our end?
Check out our News Release section for updates about iOS/iPadOS testing, as well as bug fixes, new features and everything in between.
We're cleared for takeoff! You can now update your devices up to iOS 15 for iPhones and iPadOS 15 for iPads. Please reference these links to confirm if your specific device is compatable with these lates Apple platform versions.
