iPad Release Notes

Version 2.16 — August 31, 2023

Overview & Highlights

This release introduces an updated Play Video experience, an updated version of the Zoom SDK, and several performance and stability improvements. The Class iPad application will now require iPadOS v14.0 or later. Additionally, as of this release, the main Classroom will continue to be recorded by default when Breakout Rooms are started and Cloud Recording is in use.

Zoom SDK Version: 5.15.5

Class minimum version as of this release: 2.11


Play Video

In order to improve the performance of the Play Video feature across different devices, we have made several modifications to this experience.

  • Videos may be muted by default on some platforms to prevent issues with playback;
  • A blue banner has been introduced at the top of the video frame to indicate who is controlling playback;

Additionally, we now support Vimeo as an additional content provider! Vimeo videos can be uploaded and controlled using the same process and workflow as YouTube videos.

Ability to Clear Chat

Class chat threads will automatically clear after 8 hours. If, however, an instructor needs to clear the chat history sooner than this point, they can now do so using the option shown below.
