iOS 6.11.1 — February 2023

Resolved issues

  • Fixed an issue with sending a diagnostic log with a description provided by an end user.

iOS 6.10.3 — January 2023

Change in handling concurrent calls

We made a small change with how Cymbus handles multiple calls so that Cymbus behaves in the same way as Native Dialer.

Previously when Cymbus has two ongoing calls and one of the calls ended, the remaining call automatically becomes unheld (or active in other words) so that the user starts hearing the call as soon as another call ended. Now, the remaining call stays on hold until the end user explicitly takes the call off hold.

Resolved issues

  • Fixed an issue with Voice Over where the Decline button for receiving files was not accessible via Voice Over.

  • Other stability improvements and fixes.

iOS 6.10.2 — December 2022

Resolved issues

iOS 6.10.1 — November 2022

iOS 16 Support

Cymbus app version 6.10.1 includes iOS 16 support. Note that we are not ready to announce a full support for Dynamic Island including iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max as more changes are required.

This app version also drops iOS 13 support; any devices using iOS 13 will not be able to upgrade to this app version.

Resolved issues

  • Fixed an audio issue on iOS 16 where a user heard distorted sounds during a call when Airpods were connected. (Ticket # 70405)

iOS 6.9.3 — October 2022

Fix for VoiceOver accessibility support on iOS 16

Resolved an accessibility issue on iOS 16 where VoiceOver could not read out some labels such as entries on the Call History tab, Remove Favorite, and some Cymbus meeting related actions.

Adjusted the "Back to the call" bar on iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max

The Back to the call bar during an active call previously appeared too narrow on the devices with the Dynamic Island. The height has been adjusted so it is easier to tap now. Stay tuned for a full support for Dynamic Island.

Location prompt for 911 calls

Cymbus Version 6.6.3 enables E911 to use the device’s GPS coordinates, which means calls to 911 or other emergency services from the Cymbus app will be dynamically routed to the nearest PSAP based on the user’s active location.
