With the release of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, Apple is making some changes to prevent users from inadvertently installing potentially harmful software on their devices, including adding a new Developer Mode. This change requires Solid Sales Pro™ to run in Developer Mode.

You have two options:

  1. If at all possible, you can delay the installation of iOS 16.
  2. Delaying the operating system update may not be feasible in all cases, then Enabling Developer Mode is the alternative.

When you try to run Solid Sales Pro™ on an iOS 16 device, you will get a "Developer Mode Required" warning.

How to enable Developer Mode

The alert indicates that to enable Developer Mode, go to Settings > Privacy & Security on the iOS device. Scroll down to the Developer Mode list item and navigate into it. To toggle Developer mode, use the "Developer Mode" switch.

Tap the switch to enable Developer Mode. After you do so, Settings presents an alert to warn you that Developer Mode reduces the security of your device. To continue enabling Developer Mode, tap the alert’s Restart button.

Disable Developer Mode

If you want to disable Developer Mode, you do so directly on the device. Go to Settings > Privacy & Security > Developer Mode to show the Developer Mode toggle switch.

Like enabling, disabling Developer Mode requires a device reboot before it becomes effective. After you disable Developer Mode, you cannot run Solid Sales Pro™ on the device until you reenable it.

New Solid Sales Pro™

Solid is rewriting Solid Sales Pro™, which will be published through Apple’s App Store and, therefore, does not require the use of Developer Mode. We began working on the new version some time ago in anticipation of this release; however, it is not yet ready. Yet we expect to release it soon.
