BT Sport has released an update designed to prevent iPhone and iPad app users from suffering a recurrence of the technical problems which blighted the first Premier League match of the season.

During Liverpool v Stoke City on Saturday August 17th - a match broadcast exclusively live on BT Sport - a number of app users found themselves unable to log in to their accounts and stream the game to their mobile devices.

Many took to Twitter to complain about connection problems, leading BT Sport to issue an apology and publish guidance on how to avoid similar difficulties in future.

Two weeks on, BT Sport has launched a new update - BT Sport Version 1.1.3 - in a bid to eradicate any technical problems app users may have been experiencing.

The firm says the update includes "various bug fixes and performance improvements" designed to boost the user experience.

Other changes include the addition of results, fixtures and league tables for rugby union, and the removal of screen furniture in full-screen mode.

BT Sport reports it has fixed a bug where 'What's On' showed 'No events' when the device clock was set to 12 hours, however the broadcaster has offered no specifics as to what the other corrections are.

Version 1.1.3 is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Users are required to have iOS 5.0 or later.

The update is available at the following link:

We have not tested the update as yet, so please tell us about your experiences with BT Sport Version 1.1.3 in the comments section below.

Has the update resolved any difficulties you were having with the BT Sport app? Or are you still having trouble watching BT content via your mobile device?
