Release method

Runway will set your default release method and phased release setting on every new release. You can still manually change these options for a specific release.
  • Manually release updates — Choose this release method if you plan to release manually via Runway or App Store Connect, or if you're using Runway's automated release feature.
  • Automatically release updates — App Store Connect will release your app update as soon as it's approved.

    • Day 1 – 1 percent
    • Day 2 – 2 percent
    • Day 3 – 5 percent
    • Day 4 – 10 percent

Release method

Runway will use this release setting for each new release. You can manually change the release method for any particular release.
  • Don't stage — Releases update to all users immediately
  • Staged rollout to a percentage of users — Choose a percentage of users that will initially receive the update
  • Staged rollout with percent increasing over multiple days — Runway will automatically increase the percentage of users that receive the app update over a period of time, according to your custom settings. Configure the number of days for the rollout (2 - 7 days) and the staged rollout percentage for each day
If a staged rollout is halted during the course of an automated staged rollout, you must manually resume the rollout and update the staged rollout percentage going forward
