Updating the Mira Prism App
ITestflight is an Apple distribution platform which enables beta and non-consumer facing applications to be installed and downloaded to iOS devices.
The best way to manage Mira Prism app updates - and avoid app expiration events via Testflight - is to set Testflight on your iPhone to enable automatic updates.
1. Set Testflight to automatically update apps
The automatic update setting in Testflight is only available in Testflight 3.x . To be able to use Testflight 3.x, your iPhone must be running iOS 13 or higher.
Currently, all the compatible iPhone devices with the Mira Prism headset (regular sizes iPhone 7,8, and SE 2020) are able to update to iOS13 or higher.
