Punkt. MP02: a phone for focused living

Release notes SW Version APHY MC02.20240621.U0

02/07/2024

New features:

  • Improved Out-of-Box Aphy Email setup: Enhanced out-of-box experience for setting up Aphy email, making the initial configuration smoother and more user-friendly. After the user has entered his Aphy email address and password the account will be set up automatically.
  • Aphy Email app: The Aphy Email app can only be used to configure emails belonging to the aphy.io domain. After the update, it will no longer be possible to configure emails other than those belonging to the aphy.io domain in the Email app. 
    • As a consequence of recent changes, the Email app will be reset after the OS update and the user must reconfigure their Aphy email account on the MC02.
    • If users have configured an email account using the POP protocol, they must perform a backup before executing the system update. Please use the Backup feature located in the Settings section of the Email app.
    • To configure other email accounts (different from Aphy account), we recommend downloading and using an email client application such as K-9 Mail.
  • GMS Wizard improvement/GSF improvements: The download and configuration of the Google Play Store via GMS Wizard has been improved, making the process frictionless for our users. 
    • As a consequence of recent changes, the Google Play Store app may crash. To resolve this problem, uninstall the Google Play Store app and then reinstall it via the GMS Wizard.

Fixes:

  • Multiple apps reported crashing due to Geolocation: Applications that rely on Geolocation dependencies provided by GSF (Google Services Framework) will no longer crash.
    Apps for navigation, vehicle charging, delivery, and real estate & rentals are now properly supported.
  • Google Login Applications stability: Users can now use "Login with Google" applications without any issues.
  • Carrier fixes: Added specific APN for carriers in Liechtenstein (FL1), and Norway (PlussMobil).
  • Digital Nomad: A defect in the implementation of the Digital Nomad client has caused an overload on the service infrastructure. With the increased adoption of this release among all clients, this issue should be resolved.

Known issues:

  • OS Upgrade Time: To improve the amount of time required to perform a system upgrade, connect the MC02 to a charging device which will reduce the update time to approximately 20 minutes to complete. Our team is working to improve this user experience in future updates.
