What you need to know
- A new Halide update has added a feature that will help ensure people don't lose photos.
- Halide's developer says an iOS bug sometimes causes photos not to be saved.
- The new update will now keep photos in-app, ready to be saved later.
Halide has a new update in the App Store that includes a number of changes with the most notable being one designed to help ensure an iOS bug doesn't mean people lose their photos.
According to Halide's version 2.7.1 App Store release notes, a new Image Rescue update has been made to ensure that people can save their photos. That's to help deal with an iOS bug that apparently stops the app from saving snaps as they are taken. And while Apple has "mostly fixed the problem," it hasn't done it to Halide's satisfaction.
The new Halide update also includes a new option to apply batch actions to photos, too.
The new update is available to everyone who already has the app and you can update via the App Store update mechanism. Everyone else can download it afresh now. Halide is one of the best iPhone camera apps around and should definitely be checked out!
