June 2018: MobileCaddy Trust Update


Welcome to our June 2018 MobileCaddy Trust update, designed to keep you up to speed with all the latest mobile OS releases and new versions, cover anything relevant which is new with the Salesforce platform, and offer a look ahead to forthcoming changes or issues which will be important for you to keep an eye on.

OS Releases


iOS 11.4

The Developer betas have started to appear for iOS 11.4.1 – with beta 4 out at the time of writing, and as yet we aren’t reporting any issues with this build.


Android ‘P’

Android P DP3 was released earlier this month, and as yet we aren’t reporting any issues with this build. The release appears to have improved on DP2, and we expect to see DP4 dropping within the next week.

Timescales for Android P can be seen in this timeline.


As with all releases, MobileCaddy will test Android P right throughout its release cycle to monitor if changes will be needed to container apps to support it.

Salesforce Platform


All orgs were updated to Summer ‘18 early June, following our continual testing through from pre-release to sandbox.

Although no changes to MobileCaddy or app containers were required for this release we have picked up on anecdotal performance drops. We are in continued dialogue with Salesforce’s Apex product team to raise this up and provide test results with them.

At the time of writing we are seeing patch level at Summer ‘18 11.1.

Of course we already preparing for the Winter ‘19 release, and expect this to arrive into pre-release orgs at the start of August.

Critical Updates

Occasionally there are critical updates (CRUCs) released by Salesforce that may impact the running of MobileCaddy applications. When these are seen we request that partners do not activate them prior to them being “green lighted” by us.

There is currently 1 critical updates of note, that we request are not activated until they’ve been through our QA processes.

Instance Refreshes and Org Migrations

From time-to-time, Salesforce undertakes a maintenance operation called an Instance Refresh. This is performed for various reason, but primarily to maintain good performance. As part of this your org may be moved to a new data center (note this is not an “Org Migration” – yes, silly naming, we know). More information on this, and steps that might be needed, can be found in this Salesforce Help Document.

* Correct at time of writing.
