Dear All, Starting April 2023 , Apple mandated an upgrade to their SDK 16.1 . While we currently support version 15, our next version of Connect for Mobile (v2.23) for iOS will need a minimum iOS version of 16. On 15-May-2023 , we will be releasing v2.23 of Connect for Mobile.

Therefore, in order to continue using Trimble Connect for Mobile, please upgrade to the latest iOS version 16 before 15-May-2023 . Regards Darshan Kamat (On behalf of Trimble Connect)
