To ensure that all drivers are using the latest functionality and security enhancements, GetSwift has implemented new logic surrounding when a driver needs to update their mobile app. The system will now recognize two update types:
1. Soft Update - where there is a newer version of the app available in the App Store, but the version of the app on the phone is still acceptable for use.
2. Hard Update - where there is a new app version available in the App Store and functionality and/or security enhancements have been introduced that make the driver’s current of the mobile application no longer acceptable for use.
The soft update will give the driver the notification below, and they will have the ability to update now (they will be redirected to the app store) or update later (they will see the notification again in the future)
The hard update will give the driver the notification below, and they will not be able to use the app until the update is completed:
