Hi all! Is this thing on?
… just in case you haven’t received the memo: as of May 1, 2013, Apple will no longer accept newly submitted and updated apps that access UDID. What’s that mean for you? Well, it means that brand new PlayHaven SDKs are coming your way!
In anticipation of the announcement (and to help make sure your app complies with Apple policies for the use of device information) we’ve been working hard on updating our iOS, Unity and Adobe Air SDKs. The iOS and Unity SDKs are available now. Adobe Air extension is expected to be released tomorrow. The new SDKs will:
* Disable UDID by default
* Send MAC, IFA/IDFA and ODIN by default
* Incorporate receipt verification***
***Fine print: Although we’re still working on server side support for receipt verification, we advise you to implement receipt verification as supported in the SDK. We’re a couple of weeks from fully supporting this. But once deployed, you won’t need to touch a thing to leverage in-app purchase tracking with receipt verification. (WIN)
If all that’s not convincing enough, well, we threw in a few bug fixes here and there as well.
Considering the importance of UDID deprecation, we highly recommend that all of our partners update to the new SDKs prior to your next submission to the App store. You’ll definitely want to update if you’re using an SDK earlier than 1.8.2 as those versions did not support identifiers other than UDID. So, disabling UDID would cause the SDK to stop working. Why not go update right now?

We hope we’ve made things easy for you. Just in case you have some questions, we have a great team here to help you along the way. Trust me! I ask them questions all the time. :-)
More awesome products launching soon.
