Pokemon GO Is Being Updated To Version 0.83.1 On Android & Version 1.53.2 On iOS

Niantic has not stopped with their support of Pokemon GO. The team have made a new blog post, saying that “Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.83.1 for Android and 1.53.2 for iOS devices”. They also provided a list of patch notes from their development team. We’ve included the patch notes for you down below, so feel free to check them out.

  • Added support and made optimizations for the iPhone X screen resolution.
  • Removed support for devices running iOS 8.
  • Resolved a bug causing error banners to remain visible until the app is restarted.
  • Resolved a bug that prevented Trainers from powering up Pokémon to their max CP.
  • Improved load times when you open the app.
  • Various bug fixes and performance updates.



  1. Does the removed support for iOS8 have anything to do with the slowdown stuff that’s been going on?

    1. No. They are dropping support for older iOS systems because the technology they use (particularly AR) isn’t possible on iOS8 and below. The phone slowdown is either weakening batteries or planned obsolescence (probably a bit of both) and has nothing to do with Niantic pulling support.

  2. This article is erroneously speaking of an update that came out months ago. I’m sure this article is supposed to be about the latest update:


    Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.89.1 for Android and 1.59.1 for iOS devices. Details from our development team:

    Resolved a bug that caused the Pokémon collection screen to scroll to the top after evolving, transferring, or renaming a Pokémon.
    Added the ability to sort the Pokédex by region.
    Improved incubator sorting order when selecting an incubator.
    Improved the way Pokémon scale throughout the app.
    Various bug fixes and performance updates.
