Runway can automatically apply your export compliance information to new builds uploaded to TestFlight. You must enable the automation in order to see defeault export compliance settings applied to new builds. Learn more.

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 prior to submission.

  • 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.

  • Phased release — App Store Connect will release your app update over a 7-day period, as follows:

    • Day 1 – 1 percent

    • Day 2 – 2 percent

    • Day 3 – 5 percent

    • Day 4 – 10 percent

    • Day 5 – 20 percent

    • Day 6 – 50 percent

    • Day 7 – 100 percent

Release method

Runway will use this release setting for each new release. You can manually change the release method for a specific release prior to submission.

  • 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.

Default release method and the custom staged rollout automation

Runway custom staged rollout automation can roll out your update over the course of several days. In order for the automation to start your custom staged rollout sequence, the release method for the release must be set to "Staged rollout to a percentage of users". If the automation is enabled, your initial staged rollout setting will be ignored – the staged rollout percentage indicated on Day 1 of your custom staged rollout configuration will be used instead.
