OSRS Mobile: iOS Beta Beginning
On Tuesday 10th April we sent invitations to 5,431 players to participate in the first iOS beta test. 2pm BST today, those players will be able to access the Old School Mobile application!
At 2pm BST today Apple will be emailing the players with an invitation to access the Old School RuneScape application via TestFlight. The email will be sent to the email address that you provided us with upon participation sign-up, and that may not be the email address that's linked to your RuneScape account.
All players invited to participate in the beta should all have received an inbox message titled OSRS Mobile: iOS Beta Launch which contains the following:

The appetite for OSRSMobile is extreme, and we're quite keen to make sure that you know what to expect us. We'll be collating feedback, and distributing surveys to the testers, over the week of the test. We'll then look to report our findings to you as soon as possible. We'll have a better idea of what to expect next in terms of testing, and we'll keep you informed as and when we're able.
Make sure you join the discussion with the OSRSMobile tag on Twitter, and include 'iOS Beta' in the subject of your Reddit threads!
