While we attempt to provide wider support where possible, it is Bitmovin practice to provide official support for the Bitmovin Player for the last three major versions of native operating systems
(See our Device Support Page).
As a result, official support for the iOS/tvOS Player SDK for iOS/tvOS 12 and iOS/tvOS13 operating system versions will be withdrawn with the last Player release in March 2023.
Closer to this release, more information will be made available in Bitmovin Player documentation and release notes, as well as via the Bitmovin Developer Community.
What does this mean?
While you can continue using prior versions of our SDK to target iOS/tvOS 12 and 13 devices, as of the last iOS Player SDK release of Q1 2023, Bitmovin will not provide any new fixes and features for iOS/tvOS 12 and 13, and newer versions of the Bitmovin iOS Player SDK versions will not function on iOS/tvOS 12 and 13 operating system versions.
The final version number before iOS/tvOS 12 and 13 support is dropped will be communicated closer to the time.
