New Pokémon GO update live for iOS

The update brings some fixes to game crashes and solves an oversight with Google account privacy for iOS users.

Pokémon GO, the wildly popular new app released last week, has had its first update for iOS users released. Presumably one for Android may follow shortly; we’ll update the article if that happens.

There’s no new game features or Pokémon to speak of here. That doesn’t make the update less useful, as bug fixing is certainly appreciated. Version 1.0.1 brings the following:

Thank you for your incredible response and support of Pokémon GO! We are working hard to improve the experience for everyone. This update focuses on making Pokémon GO more stable with the following improvements:

– Trainers do not to have to enter their username and password repeatedly after a force log out
– Added stability to Pokémon Trainer Club account log-in process
– Resolved issues causing crashes
– Fixed Google account scope

The last one may be unique to iOS, as it was recently reported developer access was granted to ones Google account when the game was used on iOS. This issue has not been encountered by Android users, so perhaps Android will have a different update to expect.

The update is 110 MB in size.
