Removing version 18.11 of BMC Digital Workplace Apple iOS and Google Android mobile clients
The Apple iOS and Google Android mobile clients available with version 18.11 and earlier were deprecated with the 19.02 release, and are no longer supported with the 19.05 release of BMC Digital Workplace. For more information, see Product announcements.
The Progressive Web App, introduced with the 19.02 release, uses an interface that provides seamless access to all the features across supported desktop and mobile devices. If your Apple iOS users need the capability to push notifications and scan QR codes, you can continue to use the BMC Helix Digital Workplace app available from the App Store.
