BitLife 1.39 patch notes are now available – New careers and a whole lot more!

If you were hoping for something new to do this week then BitLife has you covered! The 1.39 patch has gone live for the iOS version of the game. As usual, if you're on Android, you'll be waiting a bit for this one to come to your devices. In this update, your friends and relatives can get sick, which allows you to bring them to the doctor. You can switch to your child's life before you kick the bucket. There's a new arrest system, paternity tests, you can get eloped, and your relatives can even accessorize.

The big part of this update is the addition of 10 brand new careers! There's things like baker, blacksmith, carpenter, and a bunch of other stuff. You can also take different majors in college, such as physics, journalism, criminal justice, and more! There's a lot more to this update, which you can find the patch notes below.
