Restoring your iOS beta access

Restoring your iOS beta access

Update: iOS build 0.13.3 is live as of 5/12/19. Thank you for your patience! You can resume testing Status as usual.

A quick update to keep you in the loop on what’s happening with our iOS Status beta app. Note that this does not apply to those using Android to access Status on mobile.

We’ve been delivering Status beta on iOS via TestFlight. Our testing program on TestFlight expired yesterday (2 December) meaning that the iOS app became temporarily unavailable.

We wanted to give you a heads up to let you know that:

  • As of yesterday, your iOS Status app became temporarily unavailable.
  • We’re working to fix the problem and anticipate having the app back up and on line on TestFlight by COB 4th December.
  • The tokens in your Status app wallet are safe and will be available again once the app is back online.
  • If you need access to your SNT before then, you can recover it at any time in another wallet, e.g. Metamask. Here’s a utility to convert your Status seed phrase into a private key (feel free to ping any of us at https://get.status.im/chat/public/status-core or on [email protected] if you have any questions on doing this!)

While we’re here, it’s probably a good idea to remind you that v1 (when launched in January 2020) will introduce a breaking change - be sure to have your seed phrase stored securely (or if you prefer, you can move any funds in your Status beta wallet out to another wallet ahead of time). Read more on that here.

As we hit our final stretch of beta in TestFlight and look ahead to v1, we wanted to thank all of you who have been part of this testing journey with us; you’ve been an immense help to us in dogfooding Status, and we couldn’t have reached where we’re at now without you - cheers!
