Earlier this week, Apple released the new version of iOS, iOS 12. We’ve been testing iOS 12 with 10.2 Tokyo Release 3 and the 10.3 Carnival Beta. 
What we support with RAD Studio 10.2.3 today:
  • Building applications that can run on iOS 12 devices using the iOS 11 SDK and Xcode 9.x
The new SDK and Xcode version are not supported at this time.
What we plan to support for the new iOS 12 with RAD Studio 10.3:
  • Targeting iOS 12 devices using the iOS 12 SDK and Xcode 10
We are adding support for the new Apple and Google mobile OS releases in 10.3 and allowing customers who need them to use the 10.3 beta to meet those requirements.
As a way of providing early support to our customers on Update Subscription, we invite you to join our 10.3 Carnival Beta program. If you are on Update Subscription and haven't received an invite to join the 10.3 NDA Beta, please contact your Embarcadero sales representative.
With a coming 10.3 beta build, we’ll provide support for targeting iOS 12 with the latest SDK and Xcode version. Although the usual beta restrictions do not allow for building and deploying production apps, the coming beta will have a special EULA provision allowing you to deploy (production) iOS apps to the Apple App Store. This is the same approach we’ve taken to allow beta testers to build and deploy Android apps with the new API level 26 or later requirement.
Being able to participate in our Beta program is one of the great benefits of Update Subscription. You can check how many days you have remaining on your Update Subscription using the License Manager.
We also plan to support building 32-bit apps that can run on macOS Mojave in 10.3 and in a coming beta build.

  • Is there no way to target iOS 12 with 10.2.3?  we have a massive amount of work to port our app from 10.2.3 to . 10.3, and an urgent need to get a new version on the app/play store in the next month, there was a post by and they suggested a way of importing the iOS 12 SDK without getting the stdarg.h error, but the page is no longer visible due to the codegear community pages being moved (404 error)

  • For those in the same boat as me, with Delphi Tokyo who's Delphi will become unable to develop \android Apps in 1 months time, Please assist by also logging complaints with the FTC. they have already started investigating my complaint and provided me with further information. Its the only way we can get Embarcadero to support their products properly. Itonly takes 5 minutes to lodge a complaint: www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/Information
  • I agree, we have made the decision to prioritise switching to Xcode and Android Studio as the support for Delphi from Embarcadero when a client has an issue is non existant. Can't do anything more than hobbies with such a support system. Hobbies dont pay the bills however so will move my production apps to Xcode and not buy another version of Delphi again.
  • I think Xcode is a better solution for iOS development and for Android is Android Studio, in Delphi I have a lot of problems with bugs and every time i need for some patches :(
  • I think you don't understand something about mobile programming. Delphi support Android 7 and 8 in the actual release and all devices that has an Android version using API 14 and greater. It's the same thing for iOS : we (developers) compile for an API level and the store can distribute our program to users how have greater or equal OS. It's not Embarcadero's fault if Google don't want anymore distribute apps with API under level 26 since 1 august (new apps) and 1 november (updates). Delphi 10.2 Tokyo can already be used for this, you have explanation about this in a community post. It's also not Embarcadero's fault when Apple change Xcode and it's toolchain. It's why they give us patches and solutions as soon as they can fix the problem. If you use VCL you don't have the problem because Microsoft don't change the rules each year. you still can use an old Delphi version and distribute your programs for years. If you use FMX you have to subscribe to updates because the rules changes, the API changes, the frameworks changes and Embarcadero work hard to follow them (as every development tool editor).
  • Also, if one of your main 'attractions' for your product changes their goal posts, most third parties will make available a fix for their existing customers, not see it as a nice cash cow to get everyone to buy new versions again.
  • Not allowing updates is just as well blocking it. Delphi claims to support Android 7, when in fact the Android is based on API Level 14 which came out in 2011. Until this is clearly mentioned on the Buy Delphi page where customers expecting truthful advertising may be trapped into buying Delphi, I will carry on following up with the FTC to get this sorted out for everyone caught in same trap as I am
  • Albert, I have read the Google Play announcement and it does not mention blocking currently available apps, it is only for new apps or updated apps, so you still have a month or two to get an update out. When you state "basically means in a 2 months my Android app will be blocked by Google until I buy the new Delphi" your existing apps should be fine. Also as bad as it seems, no third party can be held responsible for Google changing the goal posts.
  • Hendry / Sarina, I think what you are missing here is that this is not 'early support' it is something that was promised and advertised and sold to people like me for years now, Even though it actually only targets Android released in 2011 (api lvl 14). So it is catchup that should've happened over the years but hasn't, now everyone is suffering and Embarcadero think they will get all people to upgrade and just cough up more money for their false advertising
  • I have submitted a complaint with the FTC. I am sure they will be in touch. This is critical and Embarcadero's attitude is unacceptable.
  • Why would you link a paris city tours? Just as unhelpful as your post. I clearly stated my update subscription stopped being active with 10.2.2 so your 'beta' is not an option as only people with endless money seem to get products that works. in this link docwiki.embarcadero.com/.../Android_Devices_Supported_for_Application_Development you claim my version of Delphi can target API Level 24. Google says my Delphi targets API lvl 14. This is fake and false advertising, either rectify this by giving a patch to actually target Level 24 Android or give me a refund as your product does not do what you advertise it to do. This is a critical matter that can mean the end of my business and everyone who works for me if we dont have a WORKING resolution by end of November.
  • Serena, this is all good and well to have this explanation but for people who's update subscription ended with 10.2 update 1, and cant target anything above Android api level 14, basically means in a 2 months my Android app will be blocked by Google until I buy the new Delphi, which hopefully will be ready for this by then, but since even that has no definate date yet on when 10.3 will be launching I seriously think its only fair of Embarcadero to release a patch of some kind to allow us to target Android 24+ at least. Targeting iOS12 isnt a critical thing since we can all still manage quite okay on iOS 10 and 11 targeted apps. The Android api lvl 14 thing is a critical issue which seem to have no solution and no priority from Embarcadero ??
