Notes: * Due to a defect in the way Apple handles the content-available flag, it is not available for iOS 10.x or iOS 11.0, 11.1 or 11.2. It is available in iOS 11.3 and iOS 9.x (and higher). Carousel support requires iOS 12.0 or higher.

** Google Play Services required. We support released SDK versions only (not beta). Attributes are deleted on the server by using a DELETE command. Unfortunately, on Android 4.4.2 / API level 19 (and earlier), DELETEs are not allowed to include a body. If you call deleteUserAttribute, you get the following error:

AttributesIntentService: Error while updating attributes with MCE DELETE does not support writing 

To delete attributes on platforms before Android 4.4.4 / API 20, use the updateUserAttributes function with an empty string:

List attributes = new LinkedList();
attributes.add(new StringAttribute("age", ""));
MceSdk.getAttributesClient(false).updateUserAttributes(getApplicationContext(), attributes, null);

This function works for non-string attributes as well as strings.
