We are excited to bring you the latest release of our Mobile Apps iOS client SDK 3.2.0 (CocoaPods). There are a few updates in this release:
  1. We extended support for Refresh Token for all of our iOS customers. This feature was previously only captured in our Managed SDK 2.1.0 and later versions to enable a smoother development experience around identity provider token expiry. For more information on this feature, see the Refreshing User Logins in App Service Mobile Apps blog post.
  2. We added support for the latest iOS environments iOS 10. It also works with Xcode 8.1 and Swift 3.
  3. We optimized network performance by reusing NSURLSession objects. This is particularly apparent in long-running async operations like data pulls. (Shout out to Damien Pontifex for his continuous support in helping to improve our iOS SDK through open source contributions).
The latest Mobile Apps iOS Quickstart is also available and compatible with this release of the iOS SDK. Try these out and let us know what you think!
