Pokemon Go patch notes for the latest update are now available. The game will see a handful of improvements and changes on Android as well as iOS. The game will be updated to version 0.83.1 for Android and 1.53.2 for iOS.

According to the patch notes,  players can expect support for iPhone X’s higher resolution. Pokemon Go is currently in the process of being updated and optimized for iPhone X.

Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.83.1 for Android and 1.53.2 for iOS devices. Details from our development team:

  • Added support and made optimizations for the iPhone X screen resolution.

  • Removed support for devices running iOS 8.

  • Resolved a bug causing error banners to remain visible until the app is restarted.

  • Resolved a bug that prevented Trainers from powering up Pokémon to their max CP.

  • Improved load times when you open the app.

  • Various bug fixes and performance updates.

The issue with players not being able to power up their Pokemon to max CP has now been fixed. Developers will continue to add more features and update the game to improve its performance.

On a related subject, a recent iOS update disabled Pokemon Go’s anti-cheat system. It has come to light now that the latest iOS 11.1.1 update has apparently disabled the anti-cheat feature. Niantic was previously using a vulnerability (CVE-2017-13852) in the system to scan all installed applications on a device for suspicious activity. Since it has been plugged by Apple, Pokémon Go can no longer detect cheating players on iOS devices.
