iOS RequirementsOfficial Content

Requirements vary if you want to prototype using Knowledge Base Navigator or compile your app.

Requirements when using Knowledge Base Navigator

No special requirements are needed when using an iOS 8.0 (or higher) device with the Knowledge Base Navigator to prototype.

If you want to use F5 (Run) from GeneXus IDE, you will have to register your devices using the GeneXus Account (Associated Smart Devices tab in the account configuration) from the device.

Compatibility

As of GeneXus 15 Upgrade 7 (build 117818) iOS applications are generated for Swift 4.

Swift 4 changes the way it integrates with Objective-C, by not exposing every Swift method to Objective-C. This change in the compiler may bring some compatibility issues, that can only be discovered in runtime.

The Swift generator in GeneXus 15 Upgrade 7 is using a compatibility mode to detect possible missconfigurations, that need to be checked when the application is executed.

Please test your application meticulously and check on the XCode project for runtime warnings (shown with a purple icon) as shown bellow.

When you click on that icon it will display detailed information.

It is very important to report an issue to GeneXus Support Team with that detailed information. An example of this information is:

_implicit Objective-C entrypoint -[sdsvc_workwithdevicescity_section_general dyn_CountryGuid:] is deprecated and will be removed in Swift 4; add explicit '@objc' to the declaration to emit the Objective-C entrypoint in Swift 4 and suppress this message

Notes

  • To run compiled applications, devices with iOS 8 or higher are required.
  •  "-" means there is no recommendation or requirement in particular
