Question: What’s better than 10.3.1? 10.3.2!
Another Question: What’s better than one update? TWO updates!
Over the coming weeks, BlackBerry 10.3.2 and BlackBerry Blend 1.2 will roll out for the entire line of BlackBerry 10 devices. With these updates, your device will be more secure and more private, keeping you even more productive.
When you update to BlackBerry 10.3.2, you’ll gain access to great new enhancements across your whole device.
Let’s take a closer look.
- BlackBerry Blend 1.2
BlackBerry Blend 1.2 provides a fresh, new user interface based on our customers’ feedback. This new design makes navigating and interacting with your messages and content both faster and easier.
Your productivity across devices is improved with the addition of spell check, the ability to reply directly from within Blend notification pop-ups and visual enhancements to file transfers.
- Anti-theft protection in BlackBerry Protect
As you know, privacy and security is at the heart of BlackBerry’s DNA. BlackBerry Protect allows you to disable the device if it’s lost or stolen ensuring no one can wipe and reactivate your BlackBerry. Read about this couple that tracked down their missing BlackBerry phone back intact thanks to BlackBerry Protect.
Productivity and efficiency comes in many different forms. Many of us can’t afford to spend 5 minutes fiddling around with shot after shot trying to get a clear image every time we want to take a picture.
The camera enhancements with 10.3.2 include: low light performance in auto-mode, improved face-detection, and reduced blur caused by motion. All of these make taking pictures in any situation as easy as point-and-shoot.
- BlackBerry Calendar
As always, when you enable Meeting Mode on your BlackBerry Calendar, your phone automatically sets your phone to quiet for the duration of your meeting. With 10.3.2, you can now customize this feature to work however you need it to by specifying the events controlled by Meeting Mode, such as adding calendars to the ignore list.
And back by popular demand, your BlackBerry Calendar month view will show shrinking & growing date numbers depending on how busy your schedule is that day to show you just how busy the workday is at a glance.
For our friends in the U.S.
For all of you existing BlackBerry 10 users in the U.S. not already using BlackBerry Passport or BlackBerry Classic, this update will also offer a fresh look that incorporates updated icons and an improved action bar that adds easy access to your commonly accessed functions. You will also be introduced to BlackBerry Blend, BlackBerry Assistant, battery boosting technology, plus improvements to the BlackBerry Hub, multimedia and more.
