Halide Camera App Updated A New Feature To Help Deal With An iOS Bug

A bug in Apple stops Halide from saving pictures, but there is a new update that has discovered a workaround.

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.

Halide Speaks Out About The New Update

They stated, “Still, we don’t like the idea of any of our users losing photos, whether or not it’s our bug. So we’ve updated our “Image Rescue” feature to deal with the problem. When iOS refuses to save photos, Halide will store a copy within the app, so you can just keep snapping. Of course, we’ll show you a notification that something is up, but you’re welcome to ignore the problem until later.”

They also added, “When you’re ready to get your photos out of Halide, just open our photo reviewer. You’ll notice a big banner at the top explaining that we saved your photos. Tap on it, and we’ll show you the photos we saved. From there, you can either try to save them again (because sometimes this iOS bug fixes itself) or you can tap the action button in the upper right to share them off your phone some other way, such as AirDropping them to your Mac.”
