The new auto save option. You get an alert right after updating.

Below comes up when you go into Settings (the ... button).

Below comes up when you go into Options ( middle left button under settings.) You will need to scroll down to see it. For me the default was off.

If you turn it on, you can choose to save WIFI only or WIFI/cellular

It says save is at beginning of each session.

Personally, I like to save manually at END of each session. Also right after I gain significant progress or a prize. So for me, a save when I open game would not be very helpful.

This is what it looked like when it opened.

Screen format on my tablet has changed. Instead of simtracker on left and the occupation, hobby, etc. on right, now it's all in one, like my phone, popping across whole screen. The dialog boxes are much smaller with tiny print compared to before update.

The home store also changed to box in upler right of screen instead of across bottom. You can scroll choices faster (3 in a column instead of 1) but less screen is visible when designing.

I don't like it much.

The button below the one to change the houses floor? That has been introduced with the Chic Boutique Update.

Or can you toggle the walls in the preview of a house before building it? That would be new in this update.

Guess it depends on which size the tablet has. If it's a smaller one, you get the phone-interface. Leah described the differences at this topic.

I'm happy that it hasn't been changed for my iPad Air!

Not with the houses you haven't purchased. I was never able to put walls up while looking at houses that you haven't bought.

Sorry I didn't make myself clear enough...
