However, this meant that client applications had to ask for the user’s PhoneGap Build username and password, which from a security perspective isn’t ideal. With OAuth, client applications will now send their... Read more...

What does this mean for PhoneGap Build? We build PhoneGap 3.0.0 and below using the iOS 6.1 SDK, but since you can’t submit those apps to the iTunes store, there is no point in doing so. So, we’re removing support for the iOS 6.1 SDK, and essentially removing support for PhoneGap 3.0.0 and below for iOS. Read more...
