Pokemon Go new updates for iOS and Android

Pokemon Go players, we have good news for you tonight. Both the iOS and Android versions of the red hot mobile game have received updates. Following the update, iOS users will be playing version 1.3.0, while those sporting an Android device will be playing version .33.0. The alterlist for both operating systems is essentially the same with a few differences.


Among the most important alters is the one that brings back the “battery saver” mode on iOS. With this feature, a player can maintain his phone screen side down and the display turns off to save battery life. Meanwhile, a vibration is felt when a Pokemon is nearby. Niantic is also testing a new version of the Nearby Pokemon feature.

The complete alterlist reads:

Added a dialog to remind Trainers that they should not play while traveling above a certain speed. Trainers will need to show they are not driving in order to continue playing
Made improvements to the accuracy of a curveball throw
Fixed a bug that prevented ”Nice,” ”Great,” and “Excellent” Poké Ball throws from awarding the correct experience bonuses
Fixed achievements showing incorrect Medal icons
Enabled the ability for Trainers to alter their nickname one time, so please choose your new nickname wisely
Resolved issues with the battery saver mode and re-enabled this feature
Added visuals of Team leaders – Candela, Blanche and Spark
We’re currently testing a variation of the “Nearby Pokémon” feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
Minor text fixes
