Suica App 2.5 dropped on 9/25 without a peep from JR East but this morning they released a notice urging Suica App users to update by 10/22. It’s not immediate clear what has changed, most likely it’s all backend stuff.
Gosh does this have anything to do with a Apple Pay system update or Octopus? And by the way, where are we on that one Sunny?
UPDATE: JR East has followed up with a Mobile Suica email notice labeled ‘urgent’ asking Suica App users to update to version 2.5 ASAP. This looks serious so update as soon as you can.
