iPads with iOS 15
The latest release of iOS – version 15 – causes problems when playing on RealBridge. RealBridge have a recommended solution to these problems. If you have iOS 15, please do follow RealBridge’s advice. If you don’t, you are likely to experience freezing or loss of audio during a session.
If you have an iPad with iOS 15, and you have not already updated your iPad as recommended by RealBridge on 8 December, there is a settings change that you should make.
RealBridge are very happy to talk you through the procedure. You can contact them on the number above.
