What's new in Jira Cloud for iOS
Filtering has been updated. Filter issues without epics on your board and backlog, or filter by multiple epics at once on your board.
Searching for issues using issue keys no longer requires a hyphen.
View merged commits with a single click.
On a board with swimlanes, go straight to a subtask’s parent issue or epic with a single click.
Move projects to trash rather than deleting them straight away; admins can retrieve them before they’re permanently deleted.
Easily see months within each quarter on your roadmap.
Performance improvements have been made to issue editing and issue details, as well as notifications.
Bugs were fixed, including one that displayed a single default swimlane in classic project templates.
Time is limited, so save some by creating Jira shortcuts using Apple’s Shortcuts app.
View branch information in your issues.
Bugs were extricated, including one that sporadically booted people out of the app.
Development info within issues continues to grow: builds have arrived!
Filter by unassigned issues on your board and backlog.
Adding columns to your board is now done via the ‘more' icon on your board.
Searching for unnamed epics is now easier; they’re listed under ‘unnamed’.
Bugs were squashed, including some lurking in the issue-editing experience.
Commits have sidled onto the development details screen.
Bugs were removed: one was preventing people from editing story points, and another was crashing the app when issues were opened from links.
Format text faster with character shortcuts, including * (bold) and # (heading).
Adding smart links to issues just got easier. Try it.
Easily view pull requests related to your issues.
Quickly access your service desk’s settings via the ‘more’ icon (three dots, sometimes called ‘meatballs’).
Bugs were eliminated.
You’re a star! And now your projects can be, too. Star your favorites to locate them faster.
Feast your eyes on better smart link rendering in issues.
Further improvements have landed in the issue-editing experience, with a smarter toolbar and additional shortcuts for adding complex content (lists, quotes, and code block).
Bugs were removed. Nothing but happiness here.
Filtering just hugged flagging: now, when you’re filtering your board by flagged issues and you create a new issue, it’ll be automatically flagged, too.
One bug was randomly crashing the app when issue attachments were expanded.
We’re rolling out a new editing experience, making it easier to edit comments and descriptions, make text selections, edit in Dark Mode, and attach files within comments. (Spot a rogue bug? Let us know: Go to your account > Send feedback. You’re awesome.)
Switch between Jira sites with ease: go to your account and hit Switch site.
Searching for issue fields (such as assignee and reporter) has become easier, with better search suggestions and refined results.
Bugs were lured from the UI with a scattering of sugar-coated branches and candy-flavored commits.
Development info has landed in issues. Quickly see a summary of related commits, pull requests, branches, builds, reviews, and deployments. So much juicy info right there.
Create major incidents from within your service desk issues.
We’ve sharpened your board’s issue-create function. Now, if you’re filtering the board by assignee, epic, and/or label, your new issue will automatically inherit those labels and be instantly visible on the board.
Check out the little progress bar for child issues we’ve added to the issue detail window. It gives you a quick visual of how you’re tracking with complete (or incomplete) child issues.
Edit, copy, and delete issue comments by hitting the ‘more’ icon (three dots, sometimes affectionately called ‘meatballs’) next to the issue’s comment.
Bugs were banished, including one that prevented people from assigning issues even when they had the correct permissions.
Say hello to the Cumulative flow diagram! This report shows the quantity of issues moving across statuses over time, helping you identify bottlenecks in your team's workflow.
Create versions via the Releases tab.
Adding and editing comments just got easier, with faster @mentions, and a slicker overall performance.
Two bugs were playing havoc behind the scenes: one with Korean text-entry, the other with backlogs failing to load if issues weren’t labelled. We sent them both packing.
Cinnamon scrolls are nice, but super-smooth scrolling through reports is better. Enjoy easy reading. (No cinnamon, but feel free to add some.)
Link and unlink OpsGenie incidents from within your issues.
Discover change management fields within your service desk issues.
We added other small UI improvements, too.
Filter issues in your backlog by epic and label.
Select the sprint for your burndown chart, and switch between story point and issue count values.
iPad: Versions have split their view. (Don’t worry, it’s a good thing.)
Bugs have been bamboozled: one was causing trouble for issue-editing, and another was shining a blinding light onto the assignee picker while in dark mode.
Drumroll… Reports have arrived! Analyze your team’s performance with burndown charts and velocity reports.
View your project’s releases via the new releases tab.

iPad: Use the keyboard to select @mentions and emojis when commenting on issues.

We added less flashy bling behind the scenes, too, in the form or performance improvements and bug fixes.
Switching between Atlassian products (and discovering others) is easier than ever via your account.
Add a sprint goal when you start your next sprint.
Quickly identify which epic an issue belongs to within your next-gen project’s backlog.
A couple of bugs made themselves known: one was stopping projects from appearing as ‘recently viewed’, and another was causing trouble for board filters.
Swiping issues on an iPad to quick-move them (top or bottom of the backlog, or to a sprint or board) has been updated to match iOS; now they’re both right-to-left swipes.
Have you hit the accelerator with the new project tabs yet? You can switch between board, backlog, and roadmap so fast that you’ll basically break the space-time continuum.
Some people’s app was crashing upon opening on iOS 12 devices. We fixed it quick-smart.
Switch between board, backlog and roadmap at the speed of light using the new project tabs.
In the interest of sending some bugs sky-high, we ordered dynamite. We received diatomite instead. The bugs still expired; it just wasn’t very spectacular.
Service desk agents, rejoice! Approvals can now be processed in-app.
We removed bucketloads of bugs, including one that was preventing PDF attachments from being opened.
Goals are good (otherwise we drift, amiright?) so we made sprint goals visible in the backlog.

*Dark Mode went native in the previous release! Have you checked it out?
Nyctophiles, unite! (The people, not the bats.) Dark Mode is now native in iOS 13, embracing system colors and settings. Our custom Dark Mode implementation is gracefully entering retirement, which means iOS 11 and 12 will no longer support Dark Mode.
Some people were having problems logging in via SAML and Google, so we updated the login process.
Issue loading is faster on boards and notification screens.
iPad only: Service Desk projects and notifications have made like bananas and split. (Their view, that is.)
iPad only: Issues are more responsive to screen sizes, giving you a better view of information.
Although there aren't any new features in this release, there's an enjoyable absence of bugs. We removed a disgruntled bunch in the dead of night.
Some small bugs have been hunted down, humanely captured, and released into the wild far, far away. Enjoy an even cleaner UI and faster performance.

Big news! If you have a next-gen project, you can now view your project’s Roadmap as a chart (not just a list of issues).

Big feature incoming - You can now view swimlanes on your board!
