We’re excited to announce that we have just published our first iOS 9 API preview release in Xamarin.iOS. This preview includes support for an array of exciting new features that you can start developing with today, including CoreSpotlight, Model I/O, and ReplayKit as well as improvements to Contacts APIs.
Installing the iOS 9 Preview
You can download the iOS 9 Preview for Xamarin Studio directly from the Xamarin Developer site. Upcoming previews will add even more support for iOS 9, including support for Visual Studio.
Important: Service Release for iOS 9 Compatibility
In addition to our iOS 9 preview release, we have also published an iOS release to our update channels addressing two issues that cause many Xamarin apps to crash on startup on Apple’s OS preview for iOS 9.
At WWDC last month, Apple announced that a public preview of iOS 9 will be made available to iOS users this July. To ensure your published apps run smoothly on Apple’s iOS 9 public preview this month, we recommend that Xamarin.iOS developers download the latest release from our Stable updater channel and rebuild and resubmit their apps to the App Store using Xcode 6. This will enable your apps to run on the iOS 9 OS preview and ensure your apps are ready for the public release of iOS 9 this fall.
You can read more about these updates in our iOS 9 Compatibility Guide.
