These updates improve design, functionality, and security.
However, the pace of updates adds some complexity and risk for customers using these solutions in mission-critical environments where downtime is not an option.
Whenever a new i OS update is released to the public, we will perform another test pass within 48 hours and report the results via this page and social media.
If you rely on Apple i OS devices or Bad Elf products for mission-critical operations, we strongly recommend that you wait at least a week before installing any updates to i OS, apps, or firmware.
December 13th, 2017 Notes: A compatibility issue existed between the Direct Connect Elf for the Lightning Connector (BE-GPS-1008) and apps receiving data through location services.
In further testing, a similar problem was found to extend to the original Elf for the Dock Connector (BE-GPS-1000) when used in conjunction with an Apple Adapter.
We expect these issues to be resolved in a future i OS update.
Both of these have relatively easy workarounds, so users can decide when to upgrade.January 19, 2016 This minor update contains security updates and bug fixes, including a fix for an issue that could prevent the completion of app installation when using an MDM server.December 08, 2015 This update includes improvements to Safari including an improved Safari View Controller for viewing websites within apps and easily dismissing them afterwards, the addition of Arabic language support with Siri voice assistant for the first time, and more.For owners of the Original Bad Elf Dock Connector (BE-GPS-1000) Unfortunately, the mechanism allowing the patch on the Lightning model doesn't exist on the earlier Elf.Any correction to the incompatibility will have to occur in the operating system.
