Pokemon Go updated to version 1.3.0 on iOS, 0.33.0 on Android

Pokemon Go players, we have good news for you tonight. Both the iOS and Android versions of the red hot mobile game have received updates. Following the update, iOS users will be playing version 1.3.0, while those sporting an Android device will be playing version .33.0. The changelist for both operating systems is basically the same with a few differences.

Among the most important changes is the one that brings back the "battery saver" mode on iOS. With this feature, a player can hold his phone screen side down and the display turns off to save battery life. Meanwhile, a vibration is felt when a Pokemon is nearby. Niantic is also testing a new version of the Nearby Pokemon feature.

The complete changelist reads:

  • Added a dialog to remind Trainers that they should not play while traveling above a certain speed. Trainers must confirm they are not driving in order to continue playing
  • Made improvements to the accuracy of a curveball throw
  • Fixed a bug that prevented ”Nice,” ”Great,” and “Excellent” Poké Ball throws from awarding the appropriate experience bonuses
  • Fixed achievements showing incorrect Medal icons
  • Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time, so please choose your new nickname wisely
  • Resolved issues with the battery saver mode and re-enabled this feature
  • Added visuals of Team leaders - Candela, Blanche and Spark
  • We're currently testing a variation of the "Nearby Pokémon" feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
  • Minor text fixes

If you are interested in Pokemon Go and have yet to download and install the app, head to the sourcelink and click on the appropriate link. If you're waiting for the update,  it should hit your phone shortly if it hasn't already.
