iOS app removal

On the 4th of October 2021 the Pebble app was removed from the iOS App Store. That means new users who do not already have the Pebble app installed on their iPhones will not be able to download it.

While Rebble are working on a replacement app, it is not yet ready for use.

If you already have the Pebble app installed but not set up, continue with the guide.
