Onion Browser migrated to the new meek-amazon bridge in 1.7.5 (week of
May 21, 2017), shorty after the change landed in Tor Browser.

Affected users should upgrade to Onion Browser 1.7.5 or newer to
continue to use meek-amazon.

(AFAIK, any iOS device that can run a version of Onion Browser with
pluggable transports support -- landed in 1.6.0 in August 2016, iOS 8 or
later required -- can upgrade to 1.7.5 or newer.)

I know Onion Browser isn't in the purview of the Tor Project support
team, but just putting this out there in case y'all get any inquiries
related to this.
