Surge iOS Feature Update Subscription

Starting with Surge iOS 4, Surge iOS has begun using a feature update subscription system.

What is a feature update subscription?

Simply put, a one-time purchase can be used for a lifetime, but a renewal is required after one year to unlock newly introduced features, with details as follows:
  • The initial purchase price remains unchanged at $49.99, with a one-year feature update subscription and lifetime usage rights from the date of purchase.
  • The feature update subscription renewal price is $14.99 per year.
  • During the subscription period, all new features are automatically unlocked.
  • After the subscription expires, all unlocked features can still be used for a lifetime.
  • If you don't need the latest updated features, you can temporarily not renew and renew when needed, and all missed new features will be unlocked once renewed.

If you have already purchased Surge iOS Pro

As a Surge iOS Pro purchaser, you can now enjoy more benefits:
  • Permanently use the unlocked features.
  • Permanently free access to enhancement updates for unlocked features.
  • Permanently free access to basic adaptation updates for new devices and systems.
  • Receive a free one-year update subscription, calculated from the purchase date.
  • Renew your feature update subscription when you are interested in new features, completely optional.
This plan is also very advantageous for users who are not planning to update. Under the major version update system, developers usually abandon the maintenance of the old version after the release of the new version. Under the feature update subscription system, even if you do not renew, you can still:
  • Use the unlocked features for life and enjoy bug fixes and enhancement updates for these features.
  • Get basic compatibility updates for new operating systems and devices, such as resolution adaptation and processor architecture adaptation.
