App update

Bulk OTA updates

Previous versions only allow you to update one device at a time. You have to wait until the current OTA task is completed to initiate another OTA update.
This version allows you to initiate OTA updates for multiple devices at once. The devices with an OTA task triggered will enter the update process simultaneously. If the sub-devices under a gateway can only be updated one by one, these devices will be queued automatically without the user initiating the updates individually.

v5.9.0 Update Instructions

Optimized permission request for iOS

When the iOS app starts up, it will request the necessary permissions instead of requesting all relevant permissions at once. The optimization includes:

  • Request the necessary permissions based on the feature being used. For example, during the pairing process, request Bluetooth permission for auto discovery.
  • Request the necessary permissions based on the user’s device. For example, the app only requests the permissions necessary to run the devices that the user has.

This optimization aligns with Apple’s recommended approach for requesting permissions and delivers better user experiences.

Optimized device information page

  • When applicable, display the signal strength of the device.

  • Present the full IP address information to facilitate troubleshooting.
