New BitLife 1.40 update for iOS on August 11th, 2020 has been released!

BitLife players on iOS just got a brand new 1.40 update to explore! While the team is still working on that long awaited Royalty Update, it looks like they've sent out an update that will tide you over for the time being! In this patch, we now have the ability to age up a half year at a time. You can share finances with your spouse, partner up with your significant other to purchase houses and cars, your new lover might already own a house, and child support payments will be split between parents! That's not all, it looks like prenups, divorce settlements, and inheritance has been overhauled as well. You can find the rest of the updates in the official patch notes below.

Bitizens! This update adds an option to age up half a year at a time and overhauls a few important aspects of the game. A bunch of work had to get done to pave the way for your much anticipated Royalty Update. And rather than leave you hanging for an extra long time, we wanted to cut you an update now because, well, you are all fiends for BitLife updates. Admit it! Enjoy your fix, Bitizens, and let us know on our socials how you are liking the new features!

Here's the full list of new things in this update:

  • Age up half a year at a time - turn it on in your settings to try it out!
  • Shared finances with your spouse: share your incomes, bank balances, expenses, and more!
  • Partner up with your husband or wife on those big ticket items, like houses and cars!

  1. I have found that even if you set your character’s kid to inherit in the will, if your character dies while married their spouse takes a lot of your money before your switched over character(playing as the kid now) gets what’s leftover.

    That gives me a few options: hitman the wife/husband before character dies, keep being single only having offspring from flings, not proposing to partner, or sign prenup before marriage then divorce before your character dies. I still pick countries with no tax inheritance to live in.
