January 29, 2021 – Support Approved for iOS 14.4 for Cambium Assessments
Apple recently released iOS 14.4 causing some concerns regarding version updates following the recent approval of support for iOS 14.2 and 14.3. Currently, iPads running on iOS 14.4 are blocked from launching the CAI Secure Browser. In an effort to address these concerns and minimize delays in testing, Cambium Assessment, Inc. (CAI) and the Office of Student Assessment conducted preliminary user acceptance testing on iOS 14.4 and determined that the risk to support this version is low. Please note the following:
- The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) provided approval to CAI for immediate support for iOS 14.4.
- The current block that exists with the “Unsupported OS/Browser Combination” message will be lifted by Monday, February 1.
- ISTEP+ Retest assessments can be administered utilizing iPads running iOS 14.4 when the test window opens on Monday, February 1.
Schools should pause testing and contact the Indiana Assessment Help Desk (866-298-4256) if any technical issues are experienced.
