Link your current account to Apple ID

Currently, users cannot have all their third-party accounts associated with a single account, which leads to a poor user experience. For example, using the Tuya account and Apple ID created by the same email address will also generate two independent app accounts. Users may feel confused while logging in with the Apple ID, especially it has become a mandatory login method since April. In this case, users can associate their current account with their Apple ID.


Add Switch On/Off as one action for the automation

The app currently doesn’t have the setting option to automatically switch the products between on and off. Now, users can select Switch On/Off as an action for automation scenes.
