Updating mobile apps

Updated on April 27, 2022

Ensure that your Pega mobile application updates smoothly and without issues by reading more about the recommended best practices.

Operating system and browser updates are regular and frequent on mobile. Your mobile app environment is usually affected by these changes. Pega mobile must not only respond to these changes, but also make software updates.

Updating your mobile app is important for it to function correctly. Updates fix bugs and issues in older versions of your app, making business processes faster and more reliable. New versions also update security features, making your app more secure and resistant to potential attacks.

Keep your application updated by building it regularly from the channel configuration settings. For more information on building your application, see .
