Release Notes Version 1.7.5
This is the general availability for all external customers via Apple App Store.
Please note: 'Swyx Mobile 2015' is a previous version of 'Swyx Mobile for iOS' and it can still be used to connect to non-push-notification enabled Swyx servers like 'SwyxWare' / 'Octopus NetPhone' versions lower than 11.x or 'DeutschlandLAN Swyx'. Although 'Swyx Mobile 2015' also works with 'SwyxWare' / 'Octopus NetPhone' versions 11.x or higher, for these server types we recommend using the new and enhanced 'Swyx Mobile for iOS' app, which is available as a separate app in the App Store.
Further updates for Swyx Mobile 2015 will not be possible due to the missing support of push notifications. The iOS app will no longer work in conjunction with iOS 12, or will only function to a limited extend. For further information read this article https://support.swyx.net/hc/en-gb/articles/360000042920-Important-information-for-users-of-Swyx-Mobile-2015-with-iOS-12
For the Swyx Mobile 2015 for IOS client to operate, the following requirements need to be fulfilled:
- Apple iOS device (iPhone 5 or later) with iOS 9.3 or newer
- SwyxWare 2015 R3.2 / NetPhone 2015 R2.2 or “DeLAN Swyx II Rel. 1.2”. Enhanced presence information is available only with server-side installation of SwyxWare 2015 R3.2.2/NetPhone 2015 R2.2.2 (or later)
- Apple requires the use of TLS 1.2 for apps uploaded to the App Store. TLS 1.2 is enabled by default on Windows Server 2012, only. If your SwyxWare is running on a Windows system prior to Windows Server 2012 (e.g. Windows Server 2008 R2) you need to manually enable the use of TLS 1.2 on your server (https://www.swyx.com/support/ssdb.html?kbid=kb4894)
New Features & Improvements
Crash on importing local contacts
Settings: Available options for "Server variant"
Using the Swyx app with a Swyxware Advance server, the handover of an ongoing call to a different device of the same user is not possible
In case the iPhone is locked or the Swyx app is in the background when switching networks, it may take up to 20 minutes before the app reconnects on its own. During this period, the app will not register/display incoming calls. As a workaround, the user may unlock the iPhone, open the Swyx app and manually select either of the 3 online statuses to reconnect the iPhone to the server.
Incoming GSM calls might end ongoing VoIP calls with the Swyx app
Not possible to reject a secondary incoming call to the Swyx app
Transferring an anonymous external call to the iOS app is not working properly
No Apple CallKit integration, therefore no equal handling of native calls vs calls to the Swyx app, no call answering from locked screen
The use of h/w buttons of Jabra Stealth devices is not supported by Jabra, yet
The use of h/w buttons of devices other than Jabra is not supported, yet
