Are there release notes for the iOS app?

Hi cenders!

Do you mean Duo Mobile for iOS? Yes, we post both iOS and Android Duo Mobile release notes in the running release notes posts in this category (the same information appears in the App Store and Play Store with each release). For version 3.57.0, please see the following section:

Hope this helps!

That doesn’t contain any specifics about what is changed or fixed in the app updates.

Hi cenders,

Ah, thanks for asking about this. When the release contains minor bug fixes or minor changes, we do not go into detail. When the release contains larger feature functionality or major bug fixes, we do include that information. With the upcoming redesign of the Duo Mobile app, you may have noticed that the version 3.xx release notes were more likely to be brief recently. That’s because the team has been working hard on the next major release. I hope this helps!
