You may have already had this, but if you haven’t or if you’re not an Audiobus user it’s still worth noting:

Hello, friends of Audiobus!

It’s almost iOS 8 launch day, and there are a few things you need to know.

Firstly, as with every major software release, if you’re relying on music apps we recommend using caution before updating, because there’s no going back and early glitches are not uncommon. Definitely make use of our forum and other resources to find out how others are faring on iOS 8.

Right now there’s a bug in iOS 8 on cellular devices (that’s the iPhone and iPad WiFi + Cellular) that stops Audiobus from working when just connected to a cellular network. If this happens to you, simply turn on Airplane Mode, or make sure you’re on a WiFi network. Devices without a cellular radio are not affected. Apple have been made aware of the issue, and we hope a fix will be out soon.

Secondly, before you upgrade, make sure the apps you rely on are listed in the Audiobus iOS 8 Compatible Apps Directory. If not, once you search for an app you can contact the developer to ask them to update, or register to be emailed automatically once iOS 8 support arrives for that app.

Finally, a reminder: the next couple of days are the last you’ll be able to update to the latest version of iOS 7. We recommend doing so now, if you haven’t already.
