October 2017: MobileCaddy Trust Update

Welcome to our October 2017 MobileCaddy Trust update, designed to keep you up to speed with all the latest mobile OS releases and versions, cover anything new with the Salesforce platform, and offer a look ahead to important forthcoming changes or issues for you to keep an eye on.

OS Releases


iOS 11

Following the release of iOS 11 in September, a few minor updates have been pushed to fix some of the more critical issues and apply security patches. At the time of writing, v11.0.3 is currently GA.

There should be no need to update container apps for this 11.0.3 minor release.

October has also seen 11.1 Developer and Public Betas, and these have been progressing without issue through our daily test runs. At the time of writing, the latest Public Beta is 11.1 Beta 4.


Android Oreo (‘O’)

Following the seamless release of Android Oreo (‘O’) back in August, we’ve not had any further patch/minor releases, though when they do come along they’ll enter our QA cycle. There should be no need to update container apps for the 8.0 release.

Salesforce Platform


Winter ‘18 began to make appearances on existing production instances around the 6th October.

A previous issue with Winter ‘18 and Android apps with community users was fixed prior to production org migrations.

Heads are now turning to Spring ‘18 which, based on previous years, is likely to arrive on pre-release orgs sometime in the first week of January, with pre-release sign-ups open mid December. As with all releases, MobileCaddy will be testing on the very first pre-release dateright through to Sandbox updates and production release.

Here’s a list of known Salesforce issues currently assigned to the Spring ‘18 release. The count currently stands at 86 issues. None of these are believed to impact MobileCaddy users.

If all this is a bit too far-off for you, then you can get involved with the Spring ‘18 release right now, by voting on the logo – yup, serious stuff.

Org Migrations

From time-to-time, Salesforce undertakes a maintenance operation called an Instant 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. More information on this, and steps that might be needed, can be found in this Salesforce Help Document.
