This feature improves performance and service reliability for model-driven apps by using Content Delivery Network (CDN).

Feature details

Power Apps model-driven apps are updated to use CDN to serve up platform static content files from a distributed network of servers instead of only pulling from the web server. This change will cause the content pulled from CDN to be loaded faster for users working in different regions than the web server. In the future, the model-driven app will leverage CDN to further modernize our platform release processes to improve performance and service reliability.

Most model-driven app users already have access to CDN, but some will need to follow instructions in Power Apps Required services to ensure that access to \*.powerapps.com is allowed. For users that are prevented from reaching CDN, the Unified Client will fall back to retrieving from the web server.
