Titanium SDK 2.1.3 RC is released – Support for iOS 6

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

We understand the importance of ensuring your apps work right as new versions of operating systems are released. Our Apple fanboys in the house have been working hard to get a release candidate out in the wild that supports iOS 6.

While we officially target backwards-compatible support 30 days after an official release of a new operating system version, we’ve loaded up on Red Bull and burned the midnight oil to bring you iOS 6 support today. We are pleased to release Titanium SDK 2.1.3 RC (Release Candidate) in time for the official iOS 6 release on September 19.

With the 2.1.3 RC our goal is to ensure that your Titanium apps are working properly when your customers upgrade to iOS 6. It does not include any new iOS 6 features (those are coming in a later release after we get a bit of rest).

For a complete list of the fixes included in the 2.1.3 RC, see the release notes.

Installation instructions

To install the latest SDK using Titanium Studio, see the installation instructions or follow these steps:

  1. Using a browser, right click a SDK archive download link and copy its URL. You can access the 2.1.3 RC SDK downloads here:
  2. From Titanium Studio, select the menu item, Help > Install specific Titanium SDK…
  3. Paste the link into the resulting dialog field, and click Finish

Official Support for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 Titanium 2.1.3 GA will be released on September 28,2012 and will be a SDK release containing fixes for any new iOS 6 issues, other high priority issues and preliminary support for iPhone 5.

While we have done our best to test this release with the iPhone 5 simulator, actual hardware may behave differently and we will furiously test the newest member of the Apple family when it is released on September 21 (we stayed up late at night to order a bunch of them so we can be ready on Friday!).

In the case that iPhone 5 support requires additional fixes beyond what is covered in 2.1.3, we will release Titanium 2.1.4 with the necessary additional fixes, pronto.

    Okay, I’m done sucking up.

    you can view the release notes here:

    As mentioned this RC is primarily geared towards addressing iOS 6 specific issues.

    Hope that helps

    Once again: great job!
    Thank you!

    So, I just updated the iOS SDK, came here and updated the Titanium SDK to make it support iOS 6, yet when I build to run in the simulator I receive this error message

    Unknown or unsupported SDK version: 6.0

    The simulator opens and then instantly closes. I also tried deleting the build folder to force a full rebuild.

    What have I done wrong?

  10. Thanks so much for that update on the status of iOS 6 and iPhone 5 support. Much appreciated.

    one problem on TableView with this version on IOS.
    When you use style:Titanium.UI.iPhone.TableViewStyle.GROUPED
    the backgroundColor is ignored.

  12. Cesar Estrada

    If you post this on Sep/18… And the Release Notes also have a date on the 18, Why the SDK link has a date on the 15 ???

    And after installing, it doesn’t say 2.1.3.RC.

    Is this normal?

  13. Cesar Estrada

    I already have installed the Continuous Build for Sep 15 2012 12:03.

    Is this the same one that you are posting here??


  14. Good job guys ! Thanks for the hard work

  15. Josh

    Jeff Haynie’s “Pull to Refresh” code doesnt work in this build, FYI

  16. David

    Thank you for the speedy confirmation of iOS 6 compatibility. It makes us all breathe easier.

  17. Gabriel Tavridis

    @Cesar , please check the timestamp of the build. I suggest to use the one linked from the blogpost

  18. Eric

    Thanks but the modules no longer working. For an instance, create a default module project in Titanium studio, publish and link it in some app project, run it will result in the error of ” … SystemExit: 65″

  19. Cesar Estrada

    Thanks Gabriel, I’ll do that!!

  20. Gabriel Tavridis

    We have tried to reproduce based on the info above, but have not been able. Can you please log a bug in the Titanium Community project in Jira:

    thank you

  21. Gregory DiPaolo

    @Josh – pull to refresh was altered back in 2.1. KitchenSink sample code is being updated. In the meantime you can refer to the following Q&A post for an updated sample: We will be more explicit with these types of changes going forward. Thanks!

  22. You guys are legends, much appreciate the effort.

  23. Eric

    I reinstalled the sdk, then did more tests and yor’re right it working. Sorry, may be the project or module name I created before is the cause of problem. e.g ‘ios-test’

    Thanks for your quick feedback and you guys are great.

  24. Eric

    another issue when I try to submit the new version to app store, it can’t pass the validation. screenshot:

  25. jayesh

    What changes i have to do in existing iPhone 4 App for to Support it of iPhone 5?

  26. Gabriel Tavridis

    Have you added the min-ios-version to your tiapp.xml, as mentioned in the release notes ( Try it and let me know. It should fix your armv6 problem.
    Thank you

  27. Maksym

    Thank you guys!!!

    I’m finishing my first app now. But I woried about iPhone 5 compatibility as I didn’t know when you are going to start supporting it. Though my customer will ask the iPhone 5 support anyway. So I weighed up how long could I hold it up )

    But you appear to be so GREAT! Thank you that you strain yourself and do it so quickly! I really appreciate that.


  28. Eric

    Thanks! It fixed the armv6 issue. but still got the bundle id problem. I’m sure the id is correct in tiapp.xml. Any idea about it?

  29. edg

    backgroundColor of TableView is ignored when style is Grouped.

  30. Max

    sound recording no longer works in this verision

  31. Laurie

    I too am experiencing the invalid Bundle issue with one of my two projects. The successfully published project does not use a wildcard app-id; the failing app does.

    Perhaps Eric’s app uses a wildcard app-id?

  32. Gabriel Tavridis

    can you please log a bug in the Titanium Community jira project?

    We are aware of this issue and investigating a fix. Thank you!

    is it possible to log a bug against the Community Jira project explaining the structure of your submission, ie
    *App ID-
    * Bundle ID-
    ** Bundle ID suffix
    We ll look at it ASAP

  33. Eric


    I can’t open the link of Community Jira project for now.

    • Gabriel Tavridis

      Jira was undergoing maintenance. Please try now. Thank you

  34. Eric


    Yes. My one uses a wildcard app-id. Thanks for your tip. Now I fixed it by creating the non-wildcard app-id in Apple site and pubilshed it successfully.

  35. Gonzalo Valenzuela

    Great job… m/

  36. You guys rock!

  37. I was having some issues compiling some apps under the new iOS 6 but looks like you guys are working quickly to address the issues. Thanks you rock!

  38. Luis Fernando

  39. Gürkan B.
