VEXcode V5 Block iPad App Update

Any update as to when it will be submitted for Apples approval?

What do you mean are you asking when vexcode is coming to IOS

As Bluetooth was just added to V5, we’re working on building up the support for VEXcode V5 Blocks on iPad and Android. I would expect something in Late December at the earliest, most likely in the January time frame.

Can we expect this to come out this month?

We’re now targeting a Post-Worlds release timeframe (May) for most new feature, as we’re hesitate to release too many new features/functionality (aside from bug fixes) before major competitions.


thanks for the update - it would be good to update the VEXCode V5 Text for Chromebook release?

It would help a lot of teams.


We’re working on new website updates today… the new Knowledge Base just went live as well ( -> - so lots of things to adjust.


Now that there will not be an issue with bugs interfering with competitions for the foreseeable future, will you be releasing the iPad App sooner to help assist teachers dealing with how to teach their students during the COVID19 crisis? Obviously educators are working remotely with students, who are still doing work at home, and having the ability for them to write sample codes for them to send back pdfs for teacher feedback would be very helpful in a time like this. Most of our students do not have any other technologies available to them at home aside from the iPads that the district provides them. So we have to shape our lesson delivery around that fact. Thank you!

We’ve shifted priorities and are working on some tools specifically to help with this need and hope to have something in the coming few weeks… It’s a giant time of change for everyone, including our development roadmaps, to accommodate this quick changing world.


Much appreciate all you do!

A lot of out of box thinking is needed as we all are navigating this uncharted territory.
