First things first
Kochava has released a new version of the SDK with enhancements that allow developers to tell the SDK to wait for user permission before collecting data prior to the install. Version 3.3.0 includes:
- Added functionality to SDK and server-side logic for more robust control over user session tracking and retention
- Converted some dates in reporting from Unix timestamps to human readable dates to improve accessibility
- Added user-controlled sleep support to allow more configurable install collection
Make sure your Kochava SDK is up to date. For more information, visit our support documentation for your platform.
To be clear, iOS 11 and ITP will not impact the tracking of your Kochava campaigns. *whew
Eating your broccoli & app maintenance
With that said, make sure that your Kochava SDK is up-to-date. SDK updates are the steamed broccoli of app ownership. They’re necessary to keep things running well. It can be a challenge to allocate resources to a change that is not customer-facing. However, regular updates to keep your SDK current are much less costly than dealing with compatibility issues when updating infrequently.
Xcode 9 Release
With the release of Apple’s latest toolset, developers need to update to a Kochava SDK version that is higher than 3.1.5 (e.g., 3.2.1). It’s a simple update that’s needed to stay compatible and continue tracking events if you’re making changes to your iOS app.
Even if you’re not an Apple developer, there are a number of reasons to update to our newest SDK. A few of the benefits of updating your Kochava SDK are:
- Updated security
- Enhanced functionality
- Ensured compatibility

Distribute your data in real-time

If there are network connectivity problems or user interruptions, the data is stored and queued for sending when the app resumes.
