Apple releases iOS 12.3.1

Apple has released iOS 12.3.1, this update includes bug fixes for voice over LTE calls as well as iMessage filtering and reporting, as notes by 9to5Mac:

  1. Fixes an issue that could prevent making or receiving VoLTE calls
  2. Fixes issues in Messages that could cause messages from unknown senders to appear in your conversation list even though Filter Unknown Senders is enabled
  3. Fixes an issue that could prevent the Report Junk link from appearing in Messages threads from unknown senders

iOS 12.3.1 comes almost two weeks after the official release of 12.3.

Sync your contacts with all the major social media sites

Keeping your contacts up to date can be such a mammoth task. For a while iOS users were able to allow Facebook to sync with your so they could automatically be updated, however, not everyone is on Facebook and the company has proven to be so underhanded in the way that they deal with your private information Apple removed this access.

Android users can still sync with Facebook but this does not resolve the issue for those who are on other social media platforms instead of Facebook.

Thankfully there is another way to update your contacts not only with Facebook but Instagram, Twitter, Google and LinkedIn. Sync.Me searches your social media accounts and syncs their contact information with their account.

Users can opt-in for their offer a paid upgrade to give you extra features, however, the free service is good enough to do the job.

Sync.Me is available on both the iPhone and Android. The app does also offer to sync profile images as well however if you are running iOS I recommend Vignette by Casey Liss.

First look at Vignette

After hearing Casey Liss talk about his new application he was developing I was intrigued as I have previously looked for an app that updates your contact images and was unable to find one. As the weeks have gone by I have become more excited to try this app out and so today we download the newly released application Vignette.

 

Links to Vignette can be found here and is free to download and test and an in-app purchase of $4.99 for the fully working version.

Apple extends its keyboard replacement to include 2018 models

Apple is extending its service program for MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboard repairs, the program will now include models released in 2018.

Initially the program only covered models of the Retina 12-inch MacBook, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and 15-inch MacBook Pro released between 2015 and 2017.

Apple introduced a small silicon membrane in 2018 models to try and alleviate the problem however this has shown little results.

ECG coming to Canada

When Apple first announced the Apple Watch series 4 they mentioned that the new ECG (EKG) feature would be available in the USA at launch and would gradually roll out to other countries once they had approval.

Since the launch of the series 4 we have seen several countries including the UK have recieved the ECG along with software updates. Canada could be the next country to get ECG as Health Canada’s website shows approvals for two active licenses from Apple: 102864 for the ECG app and 102866 for the irregular rhythm notification feature.

Now that the licences have been granted Apple has to enable the feature and could possibly be released with the next watchOS software update.

August may have best Ring to HomeKit compatibly

We have recently seen reports that Ring are still working on HomeKit support, the company has been saying for several years that they plan on adding HomeKit support but smart hole maker August may have beat Ring to the punch.

A Reddit user has reported that their August doorbell has suddenly shown up in their HomeKit app with no setup on their end. The user states that when they leave the vicinity of their home it stops and so this may be a beta test by the company. August’s webpage still doesn’t mention HomeKit support for their doorbell yet but this may change soon. The user also provides a video of the feature itself but shows the doorbell video does t actually play just yet.
