Update PWA

Post by Joe5648138 »

How do you force an update of a PWA on iOS after its been added to the home screen? The only way I’ve found to update the app is to delete it and add it to the home screen again manually.

Thanks!

Hello Joe,

Here you can read information about auto-update on the Appery.io platform: https://docs.appery.io/docs/appexport...

The auto update works great when I deploy and install the app as a native app, but when I install the app as a PWA on iOS the auto update doesn't appear to do anything.

Hello Joe,

You are right, there is no way to force the PWA update. This is how the PWA works. Once it is deployed and installed on the device - it is kept in the device cache. The only possible solution - to update custom files using Network strategies: https://blog.appery.io/2019/06/some-u... But the full app update - not possible
