Carriers Start Rolling Out BlackBerry OS 10.1.0.4537 Maintenance Release

Carriers Start Rolling Out BlackBerry OS 10.1.0.4537 Maintenance Release

BlackBerryZ10-lifestyle3

BlackBerry just announced that starting today they have begun the rollout for the BlackBerry 10.1 Maintenance Release. This brings us to v10.1.0.4537 which is starting to roll out in Asia Pacific, Canada, and EMEA starting today and continuing into Latin America in mid August on most carriers. Sadly the US is STARTING to get it by the end of the summer. In other words Verizon is going to get it sometime in 2015 so hopefully the leaks continue.

Either way the update is a nice one with the following high level improvements:

BlackBerry Hub
New enhancements designed help you stay organized and in control of all your conversations:

• Quickly move between messages – Use a simple gesture to quickly move to the last or next message without having to return to the message list

• Jump to the last unread message – If you have a BlackBerry Q10 Pressing the 'u' key in the BlackBerry Hub will take you to the last unread message

• Email synchronization – ActiveSync and IMAP email users can adjust syncing preferences to keep emails on their BlackBerry smartphone for an unlimited time period

BlackBerry World
Search improvements help you find the apps, games and multimedia content you're looking for. When you find that app – our new wish list feature helps you keep track of apps you want to download. Plus, this software update will automatically update your favorite apps like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to the most recent versions.

BlackBerry Balance
Manage work and personal conversations by letting you split out your work and personal accounts in to different views within the BlackBerry Hub.**

Check out the announcement here. BlackBerry is getting some serious egg on their face with these staggered global rollouts. Verizon FINALLY updated their users to a stable OS this Friday and already they are behind the ball. They really need to find a way to roll out OS updates globally within a reasonable timeframe especially when the OS update is mostly bug fixes and small improvements. (three to six months is not reasonable)

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
