The IIT Alert app for iOS devices (iPads, iPods, and iPhones) needs to be updated annually and the old version has now expired. IIT iPad/iPhone users must download and install the new version of the app in order to receive emergency notifications on their devices in the future. The app is accessible within the myIIT portal under the “Training and Support” tab in the “Download IIT Apps” channel. Your current app will no longer function. Delete your current app and install the new one as soon as possible. The easiest way to update it is to login to the myIIT portal using your iPad/iPhone’s browser. The link in the “Download IIT Apps” channel will install the app directly onto your device.
This update only affects the iOS app. All other aspects of the IIT Alert emergency messaging system are unaffected. iPhone users who have registered their phone number with IIT Alert do not need to re-register. Incoming undergraduates receiving iPads in August will have the newest version of the app preinstalled.
