Ever since Pokemon GO launched last week, there have been problems. So many problems, in fact, that developers Niantic opted to halt the game's international rollout until they could shore up the game's stability and performance.
But a patch is on the way, thanks to an indication from Apple.
An anonymous tipster has told Kotaku Australia that a patch for Pokemon GO was pushed out on Apple's TestFlight service, a platform for developers to test apps for the iOS, watchOS and tvOS apps before their eventual release on the wider App Store.
According to our tipster, the update warned users that they could lose all their progress upon installation. As a result, they chose not to install the update — and shortly thereafter, the patch was pulled from TestFlight.
As to what might be in the update, the best indication so far is a statement from Niantic regarding the account creation process for Pokemon GO on iOS. In a statement to Polygon and other outlets, they said that they were "working on a client-side fix" to ensure Pokemon GO only requests "basic Google profile information, in line with the data that we actually access".
"Google will soon reduce Pokemon GO's permission to only the basic profile data that Pokémon GO needs, and users do not need to take any actions themselves," the company said.
