50.3 iOS Agent Update
Version 50.3.1771 – September 12, 2019

- The application-not-responding (ANRs) issues are collected only for the severity levels WARNING and ERROR.
- You can configure the thresholds of ANRs with the severity levels WARNING and ERROR from the Controller UI without redeploying the mobile applications. The ANR thresholds are passed from the Controller UI to the mobile application.
- The Getting Started Wizard of the Controller UI now provides you with options to create mobile apps with the cross-platform frameworks Xamarin, Cordova, and React Native. You could instrument and monitor mobile apps developed with these cross-platform frameworks in the past, but the Getting Started Wizard did not explicitly specify the cross-platform frameworks. The newly designed Getting Started Wizard also guides you through the instrumentation for each cross-platform framework.
50.2 iOS Agent Update
Version 50.2.1686 – July 25, 2019
- The iOS Agent no longer includes stack traces for ANRs by default. You can, however, configure the iOS Agent to include stack traces for ANRs.
